What would you do if you were shopping and you found what you wanted and asked the price. The answer came back, Pay as you wish.

There is a restaurant in Bloomfield NY that is doing that right now. Pay as you wish at the Grapevine Cafe. During this time that money is so tight and everyone is cutting back, they eat out less. The owners, John Caputo and Connie Derwey, are giving back to their town and community. Come eat. Pay as you wish. One week you may only be able to afford a few dollars, the next week you might have extra. Simply pay as you wish. You not only pick your dinner from the menu, you pick your own dinner prices. After watching an older couple order dinner several months ago, carefully selecting from the menu. They were obviously pinching pennies; they split a sandwich between the two of them. Connie and John were heartbroken and began to address the need. So far to date no one has taken advantage of them. They shop for the best prices and fix the food for the day and then the customers pay as they wish. I sincerely doubt they are making money, but I know the Lord has them in His hands and He placed it in their heart to do this.

God gives to us richly everyday and expects nothing in return. I believe we should 'Pay as we wish' in the sense that we need to acknowledge what He gives us in prayer. We are the customers that can afford to eat and we come in and sit down to the huge table He sets for us and eat and then we get up and leave with maybe a $5 bill on the table. That would possibly the one time you remembered to say grace yesterday. We 'eat' or take from His bounty every moment of the day. How much to you PRAY as you wish?

Joy and Abundance, Share it with someone today.


"I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever." Psalm 86:12
