Friday, April 18, 2008's a God thing!

Today I was approaching the checkout line at the grocery store. I began to put my things on the belt as I noticed the woman in front of me. She was apparetly poor as you could tell by her dress, hygiene, and well, you could just tell.

I noticed at this point she was digging every little bit of change out of her pockets. Her bill came to $9.02 and she could only come up with $5.95. I watched for about 30 seconds as she had the manager void the items and put them back.
I don't ever carry cash on me so I knew I couldn't help. I was trying to figure out a way that I could pay for her items on my bill and then still give them to her. I developed a plan...and then I opened my wallet and for some reason.....there was $4.00 folded up nice and neatly in there. I had just gone to lunch with Chad and never noticed any cash in my wallet so I have no idea how or when it go there. I told him to put the items back on her bill and I gave her the $4.00. She said "No, I really don't need these items" and I said "It doesn't matter, please take the cash anyway". He rung them back up, she said thank you and she was on her way.

Chad didn't put the money in my wallet and I have no idea how it got there, but God does...and that's all that matters.

It's very very interesting to see how God just so happens to work things out for us and others thru us.
