Saturday evening, our family (Rob, Me, and our 8 children) went out to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. We go there pretty often which means every weekend or every other weekend unless Rob is wanting something different. The baby and I were really wanting some Mexican so that’s where we went for dinner.
We walked in and were seated. It’s always funny at the looks we get when we all go in to eat somewhere. You can tell what some are thinking when they are looking at us. The chips and salsa are always good before, during, and after the meal! I could drink the salsa so you will see me scoop it on my chips unlike those who just like to get their chip wet :)
After we finished eating, Rob tried to pay the waiter for our meal because he hadn’t brought us our ticket yet. The waiter said, “Sir, someone at another table who has already left has paid for your meal.”
We couldn’t believe it. We told him thank you, left a tip, and left the restaurant. We explained to the children what had happened. You see our Lord had put it upon this person’s heart to pay for our meal. This was such a surprise blessing!
In fact, this has happened to us before. I know you hear of these things happening to other people but sometimes you wonder do they really happen. Would a complete stranger do this? Yes, it does happen even to a table with 2 adults and 8 children.
Just thought I would share with you our surprise blessing. How have you been blessed recently?
