Thanks, God!

This weekend I went to Charleston for the wedding of one of my college friends, Amanda. I drove up through Greenville and rode over to Charleston with my college roommate, Emily. On the way to the wedding, we stopped for lunch at the Olive Garden in Columbia (a bad judgment call, but more on that later...) We were in a hurry to get back on the road after we ate, and in my hurry I left my Visa Checkcard at the restaurant. The thing was, I had no idea that I had left it. On the way back to Greenville from Charleston, we mulled around the idea of stopping at a Starbucks. It was raining and we were already going to be late getting back, so Em said that she would probably rather not have to try to locate a Starbucks. I was fine with that idea, but I did mention that there was one right next to the Olive Garden where we had eaten lunch. As we approached Columbia, we decided that we would indeed stop at that Starbucks. I ordered my soy chai latte (of course!) and went to get my checkcard out to pay for it, but I couldn't find it. I looked all through my purse a couple of times, but no card. I knew that I had last used it at the Olive Garden, which was conveniently located right next door to where I was standing. So, we got our drinks and walked over there. Sure enough, there was my card! We smiled and thanked God that He had led us back to the exact spot that I had left my card, even though I hadn't even realized it was missing!

Very cool! I don't think it's a coincidence that He used Starbucks to bring you back to the card. Hee hee.
