Faith...acts, even in small ways

I bought a boat today.  Then I went to Wal-Mart to get some life jackets and a paddle so we would be all legal on the inaugural boat ride with the girlies!  There I bumped into two of our awesome young Jesus following leaders at theCityChurch.  After a great convo (and prayer) in the marine section of Wal-Mart, I went to the check out.

The boat cushion I was buying didn't have a bar code on it.  So the cashier called for the manager to go check the price.  He took some time.  So I struck up a conversation with young woman helping me. She seems really cool.  She's been married a year - I congratulated her.  As our time wrapped up, I handed her one of these little tickets shown above and below, and told her she was invited...

When I got home, it was too late for a boat ride.  So, we watched an I Love Lucy episode, then during that
I got a phone call, from a number I didn't have in my phone.  These calls can sometimes be people with my voice wasn't so super happy.  I didn't recognize the voice, and there was a moment of tension...I thought it was a lady I turned down for a job, actually.

Then she told me she was the lady I just gave the card to.  And she was so happy I did.  She was inspired by the faith I displayed in handing her that card.


I don't give these cards out to strangers very often.  But sometimes I follow the little prompting, and go, Yeah!

I pray she and her husband have a great night.  Congratulations on One Year Married!

What, maybe small, acts of walking out your faith is God prompting you to take today?

It's how the city gets different!

Love, paul

p.s. I'm so serious - i want to hear your story!
