God Is Soo Good!!!! What a treat.

Little heart felt thank you to the young man that attends Lee University.

I was in line today at Starbucks to treat myself to a caramel apple spice drink, and received a treat I wasn't expecting.  I was gifted!  What is gifted? A young man in front of me approx 21-22 yrs old handed me a $10.00 bill and told me to pay for my drink and keep the change.  I gave this young man a big hug told him thank you and he said you are very welcome. I told him I would pay it forward. We had to wait a little longer than usual and the store manager passed a coupon for a free drink to all of us that were waiting for us to use on the next visit. You know what that young man did?  Yes.... he passed it on. So, I took and passed mine on as well... What a good thing. You know this is what I call a God thing....

After he received his drink and started out the door this young man came over to me and gave me a big hug and said "God bless you, May you have a wonderful and blessed day". This just made my day.  There are still good people... God is good!!!.  What if everyone did this?  What would our world be like? I've been known to do this myself.  It's been a while and I had actually been thinking of doing just this same gesture yesterday. So the next time your out and about you never know when something good will happen to you... Always pay it forward in all you do.  Just had to share this wonderful treat.  My mother always said to be good to yourself. If I hadn't been following her advice. I'm positive that this young man would have made someone else day. So with the holidays just around the corner. Think about this little inspirational event that happened in our Little Home Town Cleveland, Tn.

Pay for the next persons cup of coffee, donut, or sandwich... They will be grateful, make their day, and encourage them to pay it forward.  Catch the spirit!  Pay it forward......

Tah Tah for now!


  1. What a blessing to hear of this young man doing exactly how God expects us to treat one another. Lisa you are a sweet person and this young man crossed your path for a reason. God says, to spread his word, this young man did just that. And now you are paying it forward, not monetarily but by spreading his word. Yes God is good, I have been blessed in so many ways. There is way to much anger and hatred in this world, more people need to fall on their knees and open their hearts to our risen Savior. Keep up the good work on your journey, I love your blog. Happy Holidays to you and your family.....Wanda

  2. We are total Starbucks junkies but more importantly, we believe in the give of paying it forward as well.
