Today my husband went out to celebrate his coworker's birthday. I must admit that I was a bit frustrated that he dropped eight whole bucks on lunch. This put us in the hole for this week’s Lenten “food stamp” allowance.
I headed to my local grocery store in hopes to find a super sale of some sort to make up for the loss. Woohoo!!!! I found a family pack of chicken thighs for a little over five bucks.
I grabbed the chicken, a bottle of store brand barbecue sauce, and grumpily headed to the checkout line.
I love how God finds different ways to show himself....
In that instance I was reminded that while my husband and I made the choice to take a 40 day challenge, there are people who live this challenge daily. This is their reality.
I discreetly told the cashier that I would pay for the bread. The customer gave me a meek smile, nodded his head, and thanked me.
Thank you Lord for turning my grocery store run into a teachable moment.
Thank you for providing me with my daily bread.
Thank you for keeping my stomach and my soul full.
