Twice Blessed!

This past week has been very interesting, to say the least!! While at work last Tuesday, my checkbook, billfold, and coin purse were stolen out of my purse. Yes, my purse was hidden in the office with the door closed , yet that door was in sight of where I was at the counter. Anywhoooo, lots of other details involved but that's the jest of it The only picture ID I had left was my passport at home. Well, this week, Mark and I were eating at a nice restaurant and when it came time to pay our bill, the waiter said our ticket had been taken care of. As we looked around, Mark saw someone he knew from work and sure enough, this man had picked up our tab. The next day, I drove through Starbucks to get a Chai Latte (my fave) and the lady at the window told me the person two cars ahead of me had paid for my order and the car's order in front of me. What????? Ok, here is my point: None of these people knew about what had happened to me last week and all of the trouble and inconvenience we had gone through regarding that event. All I could think about was how sweet the Lord was to show me his love in little ways when I least expected it. I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that God is good ALL of the time, no matter what circumstances, but for some reason, I feel He blessed me in a very special way this week through those two situations. Thank you, Jesus, for such a sweet expression of your love and care! Praise you!

He absolutely takes care of us - no matter what happens to us. So sorry to hear about your purse - what a hassle to go through!
