Have you ever experienced being on a shopping spree and you don’t have to pay anything for it? Not even a single cent? Yes, we did! And until now I can’t help but thank God for that experience.

They were my Hubby’s long time family friend and we saw each other when we visited one province here in Malaysia. They’re a very nice family, sweet and their kids which are older like our kids too. They wanted to take us for dinner so, they fetched us from the place where we were staying. We didn’t have any idea where we were going out for dinner but they took us a a shopping center instead. Then our friend said, ” We want to bless you family. Please don’t refuse our humble request for you to choose clothes for the whole family and we pay for it.” We couldn’t help but be humbled and touched by their gesture. We told them that they don’t have to do that, but they gently insisted that we do not refuse their way of blessing us. Wow… they indeed have such a generous heart. On the other hand, we also didn’t know how to react on their kind gesture. But they’ve always been telling us that it’s okay and we could get whatever clothes that we like for us and our kids. Honestly, we had a bit of difficulty in choosing especially knowing that we were not the one who were going to spend for it. BUt we managed to finish choosing our clothes and our kids’ and were happy about everything. Imagine, shopping clothes for the whole family in one day!

That was indeed an experience we’ll never forget – God’s favor and our friends’ generosity.
