Love With No Strings Attached!

It’s so common these days to hear about people and families struggling financially. Recently, a friend of mine experienced a financial set-back due to no fault of her own. She shared her recent experience because she said it was a perfect “Bea Positive”!  The story follows and shows that while pinching pennies herself, she shared a small token that will return many blessings to her and her husband — I Bea-lieve!

She shops at Sav-A-Lot to save a few pennies on her weekly grocery shopping trips. Her husband is working overtime trying to earn extra money. Not sure if any of you are familiar with Sav-a-Lot, but you bag your own groceries to help them provide lower prices.  So she had her bags with her.

While checking out, the cashier asked if she would like to have help bagging her groceries from two young boys at the end of the check-out. The boys had paper bags already set up waiting. Thinking they might be Boy Scouts trying to make some money, she let the boys bag her groceries.  While she had already decided to tip the boys, she noticed one of the boys was wearing a church T-shirt.  When she reached into her wallet, all she had were a couple of One’s and the next was a $10.00 dollar bill. The thoughts that came immediately to mind: “my husband will think I’m nuts”, “we don’t have much money and are having to start over” . . .  Despite the thoughts, she handed them the $10 dollars and asked the boys if they could split between them. Their eyes lit up like they were getting gold!

When she got home, she realized they actually packed the groceries quite well. And then at the bottom of the bag she found a little card:

“We hope this small gift brightens your day. It’s a simple way of saying that God loves you – no strings attached.”

God loves you -- no strings attached!

God loves you — no strings attached!

There are some people you know that even after many years have passed, love you for you . . . no strings attached.  “Bea Positive” that even a small gesture or token can impact someone’s life forever!
