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!

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity.

It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego.

In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country.

But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life.

It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.

Fair Haven, Vermont’s Newest “Mayor” to Take “Office” Tuesday

Mayor Lincoln will take the reins, (no pun intended), on Tuesday, after beating canine competitor Sammie Viger in the bizarre mayoral race.

When it comes to community fundraising, there are no shortage of unique and inspired ways in which Americans can help one another out.

Between the candy bar cartel, the car wash cabal, and the bake sale barons, local communities throughout our nation have long found interesting and unique ways to stash a little extra cash for a shared project.

Now, one town in Vermont is taking things a step further, allowing residents the opportunity to put a name on the mayoral ballot for a mere $5, with the cash raised going to the creation of a new public playground.

But there’s a catch

A 3-year-old goat in Vermont beat out more than a dozen other pets for the title of honorary mayor.

Lincoln, a Nubian goat, was chosen by residents in Fair Haven, a town of roughly 2,500 people that sits along the border of Upstate New York, to serve as mayor for one year.

The goat was among 15 other animals on the ballot in the running for the honorary position. Lincoln beat out several other animals, including cat Sassy Towle, a dog named Stella Heibler and a gerbil named Crystal, for the job.

Lincoln took 13 of the 53 votes cast, just surpassing a dog named Sammie Viger who took home 11.

The young, female goat will lead the town’s Memorial Day parade later this year, dressed to the nines in yet to be revealed “custom sash”.

And while the fundraising stunt only brought in around $100, local officials are hopeful the exposure that Lincoln brings to the town will be beneficial in as-of-yet unknown ways.
