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

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!

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.

Total Strangers Gather to Celebrate Life of Korean War Vet on Memorial Day Weekend

America has not forgotten those who sacrificed it all for our freedom.

Amid the barbecues and Budweisers, it can be difficult to temper our Memorial Day celebrations with the true reason for the remembrance. Those of us with a three day weekend are likely gassing up the boat, gathering our grill supplies, and lathering on the sunscreen in anticipation of Memorial Day – a holiday that is far too often relegated to the realm of “hey it’s summer”-style shenanigans. We mustn’t ever forget why we have the day off, however. Memorial Day is truly a day of solemn reflection on those we’ve lost in the line of American military duty – a fact that is all too often overshadowed by these celebrations. But not for the fine people of Ohio, who showed the world what compassion is all about this weekend. A public call for mourners to attend the Ohio funeral of an unaccompanied 90-year-old Korean War veteran Saturday resulted in an overwhelming response. “It being Memorial Day weekend it was the right thing to do to come up and honor his life,” Suzanne Koehne told Fox 19. She attended the funeral in Cincinnati after driving nearly 100 miles to get there from Louisville, Kentucky. The turnout was incredible. An estimated 400 strangers, like Koehne, showed up to pay final respects to Army veteran Hezekiah Perkins whose only family, a daughter, couldn’t make it because of poor health, Fox 19 and other media reported. The gesture is just another reminder of the inherent greatness of the American public, and their reverence for those who sacrificed it all for our freedoms.
