Blessing!

The Lord over and over amazes me! Seeing Him work all the time blows my mind. Knowing that He designed everything and every situation is unfathomable, but I try and He blesses me with a more and more understanding each day.

A couple weeks ago Dennis and I were able to get out for the afternoon for a early dinner and a movie. We were given a gift card for our Anniversary and had never ate at the restaurant before. It was so nice to just be able to enjoy our meal uninterrupted and each other's company without having to share the time with anyone else. While eating our meal we both had noticed that two men across from us were talking bible, but we didn't catch much more from their conversation.  As we were finishing up our meal the waitress came to our table and nicely said, "The two men that were sitting across from you went ahead and covered your bill. Have a wonderful day."

Dennis and I were instantly amazed that two strangers saw something in us that lead them to paying for our meals (We did pray when our food arrived,  or maybe they picked up something in our conversation). My heart though was overflowing with such a feeling of knowing God put that desire in those men and blessed us with a free meal. This now allows us to come back again because we still had our gift card that we didn't use. Another date!

Rest of the day and even since then I'm just amazed at how God works. We have never had that happen before. We see God working all the time, but when it comes out of the blue and catches us off guard it's just should remind us of our Savior. All that He does for us. Everything that he sends us through whether good or bad it just takes me back to His scripture,

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who<sup class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; line-height: normal; vertical-align: text-top;" value="[i]">[i] have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

Thank you God for putting the desire in those men to bless us. It blessed us in a way that I'm actually struggling with conveying how I felt. Catching one off guard and seeing God's hand is just truly a blessing. I wish I could personally thank those men, but I think they know in their heart. :)
