Blog Worthy-Generosity

The message at church today was on generosity.  It was a great message and reminder.....much needed.  Said a prayer for God to show me creative ways to be generous, and then went about my day.  
Parked at Findlay Market 

My day consisted of going to Rhinegeist to Art on Vine, and then down to OTR to have an early dinner at  most favorite restaurant in the whole world.  Generally speaking if I am anywhere near OTR for any length of time and around Lunch or Dinner time, whoever is with me ends up at Bakersfield, or The Eagle, but usually Bakersfield.  So Colleen joined me on this adventure.  It was her first time going to Bakersfield.  Both of us had not had lunch, and it was 4pm.   Usually there isn't a wait at 4 pm, but it was the second nice day in a row and a sunday, so it was an hour wait.......UGH.....Headed to a  few shops and then found a spot to sit and wait.  Dreading the hour wait......waited 20ish minutes and go the call there'd been a cancelation......SAY WHAT?  Score.....shared a big picnic table with 3 random of which was fairly loud.  We set up to pig out with Guac (best in the whole world) and Queso......also very good.  With 2 appetizers one might just get 2 taco's, but we both had 3 different kinds we wanted to try.  We got the Guac and Queso within 15 min, seems reasonable.  Right when we got it the manger came out and apologized it took too long.  Wait what....but we didn't complain, everyone was super nice and attentive considering it was crazy busy.  
Fish Taco
We got our amazing tacos.  Inhaled them, and the waitress asked if the checks were separate.  We said yes.  The manger came back with our check, on one, and said it was taken care of, our meal was on him.......WHAT......wait why?  No reason, just on him have a great day.  Gave a generous tip, and was on our way completely baffled as to what just happened, and why.  So turns out the creative generosity happened to me and Colleen today.  So now I am challenged to pay it forward.  Continuing to pray for creative generosity.  God is good.
