Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Nothing Less of a Miracle

We have spent this year using our cards to pay for the car behind us in drive-thru's. Most usually this happens on a Sunday morning after we have all worked at our church. Then it comes back...here is our story:

This past Sunday, after 3 of my kids had been with me from 7am-1pm, they were working in the childrens’ wing of our church and were starving. They voted for McDonalds. Not having a lot of money on me I hesistantly drove to McDonalds. Upon arrival, the drive thru line was wrapped around the building, hungry and being impatient, I decided just to give in and wait. At that time I also began to pray. God I don’t have a lot of money but if you want me to pay for the car behind me just give me a sign, he is very accommodating to this request.

After ordering, for just the kids, I found myself at the pay counter, when the worker looked at me and smiled saying, "your all set have a great day"…what? Yes she said. A man in the line did not place an order he just drove up to the window and paid for the 3 cars behind him, your car 2 and the car behind you is car 3…Amazing…God took care of us and the car behind…it was also neat for my kids to experience this side of giving…
