During a performance at Rams Head in Annapolis, two waiters ran into each other resulting in a cascade of beverages over my head. Our waiter apologized, brought towels and said the bill was taken care of...I told him it was ok and if I was a waiter, my customers would have to wear raincoats. I was afraid he’d have to have the cost taken out of his pay. He said the bill was already off of the register. I left him a tip that would at least mostly pay for the bill, all the cash I had, and a grace bomb.
My 4 year old daughter has a friend at school who consistently gets in trouble for not wearing a uniform. We had recently purchased my daughter new shirts and we bought extra because they were on sale. She came to me extremely heartbroken for her friend and asked if it would be ok to give 2 of her new shirts to the little girl in her class. Of course, I said yes. I'm so glad to have been able to show my daughter what it's like to give and not expect anything in return.
My friend who lives in Washington was having a hard time. It was Girl Scout cookie season so I was spreading the word that I was selling them. Since she was having a hard time, I offered to buy her Girl Scout cookies with my own money, it took a while to execute but when it happened, and I saw that she had received them, it made me so happy that I could not stop smiling. We still continue to talk to this day and I’m forever grateful to have her in my life.
On a dinner outing at Cafe Sado in Chester, MD with my sister and cousin, we were surprised by the couple next to us paying for our bill in full! We feel eternally blessed and grateful for this experience of God’s love!
I was serving these elderly ladies at my restaurant work and they dropped a grace bomb slip for me and they said thank you for prioritizing them for their meals.
I was ringing up a customer at the store I work for and she didn't have enough money for her apple pie. Her little boy was very sad and she said to him, maybe next week. I took my wallet out and paid for the pie so that she and her son could enjoy it.
Twelve ladies meet every Tuesday afternoon in my neighborhood for a Bible study. Each month we do an outreach project to impact our local community and after hearing about Grace Bomb, our group decided to make Grace Bomb our project this month. Each lady in our group took four cards to Grace Bomb someone each week. At the end of the month, we will share our Grace Bomb stories and how it affected not only our local neighborhood but how it impacted each one of us.
Knowing that I was scheduled for major surgery, my sister filled my freezer with pre-portioned homecooked meals for my family. We were blessed for weeks ! I can only thank God for Christian parents who raised us to be mission minded adults. And of course my sister for following through.
I was driving home in Annapolis from picking up food from my parents and saw this car in front of me had gracebomb.org in large letter with little pictures of an actual bomb and I thought "hmmm...that's one way to get your attention." When I parked, I looked it up and here I am typing to you about it lol. I felt like I received joy right there. Seeing that taught me we dont have to overextend ourselves to show God's grace. You can literally let someone just read it. It made my day especially through a hard week. My grandmother passed away in the Philippines in her sleep. She had Alzheimers and while we are glad she no longer has to suffer, my mom had to watch her mom be buried through a Facebook video chat. It broke my heart that we couldnt be there with the rest of my family. So getting some joy just driving is amazing and I'm so thankful.
I was a tad bit stressed this afternoon and decided to treat myself to a Starbucks chai latte (after all it is Valentine's Day). When I went through the drive thru the barista told me the person in front paid for my drink. I was super surprised because my day wasn't really going as I planned. So thank you Stranger for being kind and blessing me.
