Last week, Starbucks was having Happy Hour every day from 3 to 5. That meant half-priced Frappuccinos. Of course we're going to stop for that. And that meant stopping at the bottom of the grapevine, also the 3rd busiest Starbucks in the world. Long lines, lost drinks... a crazy experience. But while we were waiting, a girl walked up to April and said something like, "My name's Heather. I was in the Joshua program last year. I've been praying for your family. Can I pray for you two right now? There, at the 3rd busiest Starbucks in the world, a young lady took the time to follow the Spirit's leading, and took a moment to pray for us. Thank you God.
We drove back home Tuesday night. My friend Jay was driving separately and happened to stop at the Starbucks in Santa Clarita on Magic Mountain Parkway. There, the barista (Megan, I think) happened to recognize him from Hume. She went on to tell him that she'd been following my blog and to be sure to let me know that she'd been praying for us. Again, thank you God.
So there you go, as we move forward, we're reminded constantly that God's prompting His people to pray; and for that we're thankful.
