Unexpected Blessings Are Fun!

I just had to tell you about our unexpected blessing tonight. It involves eating - again! Someone had given us a gift card to one of the super-nice steak houses here as an anniversary gift. We finally decided to use it tonight for our date night. Since we had the gift card that would pay for most of the meal, we went ahead and got an appetizer, desserts, and coffee along with our meal and just enjoyed ourselves completely. When time came to pay for our meal, the waitress came to us and said someone had already paid for it! We were stunned, because we hadn't seen anyone we knew, and then we just said, "Praise the Lord!" and gave the waitress a good tip! ;)

The only problem we have now is that we still have that gift card! LOL
