God Blessed Us

Each and every day God blesses us, but some days His blessings stand out and hit us on the head. There is no denying yesterday was one of those days for us. We want to praise God for such a day.

For some reason this month we were hit with more bills than usual. To be perfectly honest money was tight. We had sandwiches for dinner, and we needed milk. We went to the food store to purchase the milk ($3.64/gallon). While there we saw ice cream on sale. (I don't know why, but when money is scarce we seem to find comfort in food.) The sale was hard to resist -- buy one container for $6.29 and get two other containers free. Doesn't that sound good? It did to us. So we put three containers in our basket. Excited about our bargain, we decided to top off the ice cream with lite whipped cream for $2.79.

We proceeded to the check out U-Scan and scanned all our items. When we saw our total, it read $2.85. "No," we said, "something must be wrong." We called the attendant over to view the error. She voided our order and re-entered it. Again the price reflected $2.85. She called the manager over, and he tried to figure out the error to no avail. He was thankful for our honesty and gave us the milk, whipped cream and 3 containers of ice cream for $2.85. "Praise God from whom all blessings flow." What an encouragement it was to us. DO RIGHT.
