Blessing From Above

Its amazing how the little things God brings.. actually works bigger into your heart. My Hubby called me during work asking when my lunch was.. Its rare when we get to have lunch at the same time. ( we work pretty close to each other.) So we were able to meet close to my work at a thai restaurant. When I got there Hugo was talking to a man next to him at a table. He was a nice talkative man. We ordered our food and talked a little with him. He finished his food before us and as he was giving the waitress his card to pay.. he said "oh and I'll get there food too!"  We were like " what!!?? thank you!!" The man said " do not thank me but thank the Lord Jesus, for He is the one that provides for me and all is because he has given... and I give to you .. I'am just the messenger. My heart felt so blessed .. knowing how God takes care of His children and even at times when we fail or feel apart He reminds us of HIS GREAT LOVE AND MERCY!! so amazing.. after lunch Hugo left and i walked back to work.. as i was walking back i was praying and taking to God..all things feelings an word that would come into my heart were so touching speaking to me. It was amazing. His name was Augustin.. a man that shared his faith and blessed us as he also was being blessed from above. and the funny thing about all this.. as my eyes tear up right now .. I remember saying those same words about how to thank God because he provides .. when I was with my girl friends  growing up and couple years ago when they did not have money for lunch or others things .. or just when friends would ask me for money or when I knew they needed it. They would get so happy and thank me. But I would say those words Augustin said to us.. some how it touches me so much.. because its like God sees and remembers the things we do being good or bad.. but he gives us these gifts that sometimes seem so little but in reality its so much much BIGGER than we think.. He speaks and touches our souls more than we can understand sometimes the little things bring and reveal more to us.. so amazing how the Lord touches and transforms and speaks to us.. His word.. like in the book of Jeremiah 20:9 one of my favorite verses.. Jeremiah could not hold in and proclaim and mention to the people the word of God and what the Lord wanted to show them. " The word is in him like FIRE unable to hold it in"!! Amazing !!


  1. Beautiful, sister!!

    Reminds me (again) of the the man who said, " He told me to give it to you" (the flower)!

    God is so close to us He is with us all the time! Sometimes it's just hard because He is not there physically.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love you so much, sis!! I had a very nice time seeing you and mom. :)

  2. Such an awesome day you had. How wonderful that this man came to practice God's word in your lives.
