Double Grace Bomb

"This morning was a bit crazy. I woke up late and hurried to get two small kids ready to get to the gym on time. I realized I wasn't going to have time to make breakfast so I pulled my best parenting move and promised Chick-Fil-A. Being in a hurry already didn't prove to make this less stressful. While waiting in the drive-thru, I looked down to see a grace bomb card. I looked behind me and no one was there. By the time I got to the window, a lovely lady was behind me and I paid for hers and gave the cashier a grace bomb card. While my morning started chaotic, I left with a smile on my face as I floored it to get to the gym. So remember, when your day doesn't start off right, others might not have either. Doing something nice for someone else is the quickest way to change your attitude and grace bomb yourself! PS. This also works for spouses 😉. #Igracebombedmyself #doublegracebomb"

How About We Trade

"While waiting at the drive-thru at Wendy's, after ordering the chive baked potato (let's face it, that's really not a drive-thru food). I could tell the employee wasn't having a great day. I even said; "one of those days, huh?" she smiled and nodded her head. As I waited and of course listened to Christian radio. I could see the gentleman behind me who was obviously getting a lesson in patience; I pondered if I should pull over and go inside so he could be served next and quickly, but no one would return to the window for me to ask. In any case, while I waited, I pulled out the $10 Target gift card, that Target gave free because I spent oodles of money on school supplies, quickly wrapped it up with a Grace Bomb card, and when she handed me my food, I merely said "thanks, and how about we trade." Then drove off. I was hopeful the gentlemen behind me was kind to her, but at least I left her with an uptick of kindness in her seemingly long day!"

Simple & Unexpected

" Earlier this week I was in line in a drive-thu at Chick Fil A in Chester, MD. I had the packet of Grace Bomb cards on my dashboard for about a week and while I was waiting in line to get my food at the takeout window, I thought "Hmm, here's a chance to Grace Bomb the person in the car behind me." As I looked in my rear view mirror, I tried to see who was in the car. I noticed it was a young mother with her child in the back seat in a car seat. I decided any young Mom could use a break from having to pay for a meal, so I told the cashier in the drive-thru that I wanted to pay the bill of the person(s) in the car behind me, But she had to promise me she would give the Grace Bomb card to that driver. The cashier smiled widely and said: "Sure." Then she looked down at the GB card I'd handed her to give to the driver of the car behind me and she said: "This is SO COOL!" She looked around as if she wanted to find her boss to tell him what was going on, but then she refocused and just said to me: "This is so cool!" Somehow I had a feeling that she might have seen the GB card before. I was hoping she had. 

I hadn't felt so good about doing something so simple and unexpected for a total stranger in a long time. I hope the driver behind me checked out the website to understand further the gift of Grace, given by Jesus and meant for all of us to share with others, strangers and all."
