The scripture says that everyday is a good day because God made it, but what about when adverse circumstances hits you in your face? Does it make the day bad? No, the day is still good, but God can turn it around for you.
The other day, my sister and I had planned to visit a new coffee shop, thinking walk up was open. I had to work that day so we planned to meet there. For her, she would have to get on the bus with her pass she got for thirty dollar less. The transportation department had a special for the spring months and I will tell you, this is a blessing.
When we had arrived, we had found out that the Walk Up was temporarily closed. I was fumed. How could they do that to us? I don't live in that town and the only time, I could visit was when I worked at a school in that area. Yet I saw nothing about it being closed. No Facebook post telling me they were closed. Assuming that the lockdown didn't affect the Walk Up, I didn't even checked. Walk Up at other places like Rally's were open so why not? The temporary closure told me that the manager favored drivers over pedestrians. She even told me, it wouldn't be fair for the driver if they served us. It's not fair on pedestrians!
We tried to make the best of the day. Grateful that she got there using a pass and not a ten dollar trip ticket (worth ten rides), we walked to Dollar General for my sister had never been there then bought a soda that day. Later, I realized how glad I was when I found out my finances wasn't as much as I thought it was. God kept me from spending money on coffee.
God made up for it the next day. My sister had left over money from what a friend gave her and we had planned on going to Black Bear. We expected to dine outside because of the lockdowns, but to my surprise, we could dine inside! The waiting experience was different but not bad. They would text us when they had a table for us. Since I thought we would have to wait awhile, I went to use the lady's room. A sign on the door simply stated that because of lockdown one person only in the restroom. Holding my breath, I went in to check. No one inside. I thanked God.
When I came back, they had a table ready for us! How about that waiting? And I had almost forgotten my water bottle until a waitress bought it to me! The meal itself was good. I love sweet potato fries dipped in ranch dressing.
There is a sing that goes like this: count your many blessings and name one one by one. If you ever had a bad experience like I did, rejoice. God is still in the blessing business. He had turned my mourning into dancing by the time I spent with my sister and giving us good service at Black Bear. Keep your eyes open for those blessings and don't focus so much on the bad. Although I would have loved to try their drinks, I might not have liked it and it would have been a waste. I love Starbucks because I'm used to them but because of their connection to the Illuminati, I boycotted them. I could make my own at home and save money. They have copy cat recipes online.
