I just love how God provides. We haven’t been out to eat in a while. . . funds have been a little low, and since we don’t do credit cards, we can’t just go out whenever and find the money later. We either have it or we don’t. Well, tonight we decided to go to Uncle Bud’s Catfish (after someone was talking about it at church today). We were going to pay for it from the last of the grocery money and then use the rest to buy groceries for the week. We went with some friends and had four adults and 5 kids. KIDS EAT FREE. . . so we had that going for us. The prices aren’t too bad, but I still ordered water to drink and Rick had Dr. Pepper. We all ordered our drinks and it took a while to get them. We then ordered our food. And waited, and waited, and waited. The table that came in after us got their entire order (for six adults) and when we asked, the waitress told us it would be another 5-10 minutes. My hubbie was over it! And we were all tired of the kids telling us how hungry they were. Rick kindly walked over to the manager and explained our situation. The manager came back out and apologized. Apparently the young waitress had forgotten to enter our order and had just put it in. He apologized and said, “Your meal tonight is on me!” Yippee. Did I hear that correctly? I felt bad for the girl. . . she was young, the restaurant is new, and she is probably just learning everything. Nonetheless, we did not have to pay for our meal. Now, that is a blessing. Our visit there was a little longer than we would have preferred, but it allowed us a good time to talk with friends, a lesson in patience and a FREE dinner. We left a tip and walked out with full tummies and smiles. Anyone want to share a neat way that God has provided for you?
