Sweet Tea & Jesus… When Blessings Go Full Circle!

Last night, Bill and I were having dinner at a little diner near our house. The waitress came over, took our order and commented that she loved my necklace! I was wearing my ‘Sweet Tea & Jesus’ necklace. I said thank you and we enjoyed our burgers and sweet potato fries. To be honest I hadn’t had the best day.

Beautiful Story of Blessings Full Circle #ItAllStartedWithANecklace #RustedRoots

As the meal was wrapping up I asked Bill if he wanted to go grab a business card out of the car. I was gonna share with the waitress that we sell the necklaces at our shop down the road! And our monthly sale was THIS WEEKEND. He went out to grab one when the waitress walked back over.

She said. “At the beginning of the night we played a little game. Each of us drew a piece of paper out of a hat. I drew one that said I could pay for one tables meal today. I choose y’all! So your meal is on us tonight!” Stunned, all I could say was “Really?!!!” She smiled and said, “Yes, y’all have a good night!”

That kind of thing never happens to us. And of all days. I always hear stories like this and think man, where are those people when we’re out eating??!! Well, tonight… we were blessed!

As we got up to leave, Bill laid a tip on the table with the business card. But something tugged at my heart to do more. I couldn’t help but bring the blessing full circle so I left my necklace too!
