WATCH: Comedians See Woman Paying for Gas With Pennies. Here’s What They Didn’t Know…

Published

on

Now I don’t know about you, but I’m a firm believer that if you look around with open eyes, you can find someone to bless, even in a small way, every single day. In stark contrast to the “hateful bigoted Christian” caricature many seem to believe in, Jesus said everyone will know we are his disciples by our love for one another.

A gas station became an ordinary setting for an extraordinary act of kindness when a group of young men encountered a woman doing something a little unusual.

Carlos “HaHa” Davis is a young comedian, and on an ordinary day back in October, he and his friends stopped to fill up their gas tank while on tour.

Davis noticed a woman at the pump counting pennies to pay for her gas and looking very downhearted. Before she could finish, Davis and his friends quickly came up with a plan.

Hopping back into his van, Davis and his friends pooled together hundreds of dollars in cash they’d earned from stand-up gigs.

Calling the woman over to the van, Davis and his friends offered her the handful of money, not knowing that they were ultimately giving her something bigger than money. They gave her hope.

When the young men handed the woman the cash, her expression instantly went from confusion to tearful joy.

“My husband just died a week ago,” she told them. “We weren’t like this before. I didn’t ask nobody for nothing. I didn’t… I didn’t even ask you…”

“You okay,” Davis reassured her. “We got love for you. This is for you.”

“We gotta take care of each other,” his friend added.

The woman asked Davis how they knew she was in trouble, to which he simply replied, “[My friend] told me you were paying for your gas with pennies so I had to show love — it’s only right. We gotta stick together.”

God certainly was looking out for this woman, and she knew it. “I guess He does look down…” she told the men as she happily cried over their gift. “He says He’s watching you and watching you –“

“He’s definitely watching over you,” Davis agreed.

We may not all be able to around with an extra few hundred dollars to pass into the hands of everyone we meet, but God clearly works behind the scenes in the great things and the small things in our lives. There’s no telling where or when He’ll call on you to be a part of His plan to share His truth or be a blessing, so keep your eyes open!

WATCH: You Won’t Believe The Way This McDonald’s Customer Just Blessed His Favorite Drive-Through Server

The way he decided to bless her will blow your mind.

Published

Over the last few decades, as fast food joints seem to replace small mom and pop shops nationwide, we often find ourselves lamenting that community and human connection have gone the way of small businesses.

This is, of course, very true in many ways, but that doesn’t mean that the people behind the counter at franchizes belonging to multinational corporations aren’t human and we can’t develop friendships and strong connections with those who serve us our egg McMuffins and coffee in the morning.

Clearly, a strong friendship was formed between Kansas drive-through server Vicki Anderson and local businessman Chris Ellis when Ellis caught wind that Anderson’s car had recently broken down.

But the way he decided to bless her will blow your mind.

Fox News has the story:

[Anderson’s] vehicle — a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra — broke down a few months ago, and Anderson was informed it would cost $500 to repair. The price was more than the car was reportedly worth, according to [The Witchita Eagle]

It just so happened that Ellis’ son, Josh, was selling his 2009 Pontiac GS.

“Fate looked me in the eye when she told me that story,” Ellis told The Wichita Eagle. “I couldn’t stop thinking about it. . . . I said, ‘I have to do something.’”

Ellis decided to purchase the car from Josh so he could gift it to Anderson.

Ellis, who also had the car cleaned and its oil changed and tires rotated, drove the vehicle to Hutchinson Wednesday with his son to surprise the Golden Arches worker.

When they arrived, the two asked Anderson to come out to the parking lot, where they surprised her with the car.

“I didn’t know what to think,” she said of her reaction.

Check out her emotional reaction. Can you imagine getting a gift like this?

Homeless Man’s Dogs Distraught as Their Master is Taken to Hospital. What They Did Next Is Amazing.

Time and time again, dogs demonstrate why they have always been known as man’s best friend.

Time and time again, dogs demonstrate why they have always been known as man’s best friend.

There really is nothing quite like the bond developed between master and loyal dog, which likely comes from their own instinct to be part of a pack.

Any dog owner knows that when you have pups, they see you as their pack leader, and things are never quite right when the pack is split up.

This is precisely what the five loyal dogs belonging to a Brazilian man who lives in the streets demonstrated in an incredibly touching way recently, when their human pack leader was taken to the hospital and they held vigil outside.

Fox News reports:

The man, only identified as Luiz by local media, suffered a stroke last week in the southern city of Cianorte. He was taken to the Santa Cara hospital for treatment, where he was discharged a day later.

His loyal pups followed the ambulance taking their owner away and then spent hours howling outside of the hospital. They kept vigil outside the front door of the hospital, Brazilian newspaper G1 reported.

“The dogs were desperate,” Simone Zilane, a volunteer with the NGO organization Amigos de Patas Cianorte, told G1. “They followed the ambulance, racing after it down the roads and arrived just as Luis was being taken into the hospital. They went mad as they took him and howled non-stop at the entrance.”

Zilane, who photographed the pups, said Luiz was discharged a day later – the dogs none the wiser as he left with his brother through another exit.

“One of our volunteers from the NGO had to fetch Luiz at his brother’s house and take him to where the dogs were for them to leave the front [of the hospital],” Zilane added. “He hadn’t realized they were outside all this time, but he wasn’t too surprised.”

Amigos de Patas explains that Luiz has been living on the streets for over two decades, and refuses to live with his brother or accept a permanent home.

He says that his home is in the streets, and the one time he tried living in a house, his dogs, who had been taken to a shelter, jumped the fence and found him.

With a loyal pack like his, one can imagine Luiz certainly has all the love and companionship he could ask for no matter where he lays his head!
