With Fathers Day coming many stores are doing beef sales. Safeway was having a pretty significant sale. As I laid awake wondering just how I was going to grind the beef up I asked for God to help me out with it. Early morning visit to the store proved Him out. Walking up to me was a butcher and as he approched I told him how I did not want to clear his shelve of the meats. Telling him my intentions of grinding up the bottom round roasts he said that he had large 20+ pound muscles uncut. Telling him I was going to purchase at least three of them he suggested that he grind it for me. He was the manager of the department the head butcher. He assured me the grinder only did beef, that he would triple grind the meat and keep the muscles separate from each other! All these years grinding it on my own girls. He had it all ready in twenty minutes.
I thanked him telling him that had never been offered to me before. Telling him of how he was an answer to prayer and how I had done this on my own for 30 years, he said..."I love God too, I am a Christian". What a cool thing to occur. The harder part of the job was done for me. Dove helped me unload it to chill down while I went off to Physical Therapy.
