Well, I was talking to a friend of mine (actually my employer but has become my friend). He's situated in Canada and he's working hours and hours dedicating to his passion. To help people live a better life, by quitting/stopping their addictions the natural way. I actually little bit of broke recently, still got no payments from my online jobs. And I paid my bills on my credit cards and was worrying I might not have much to spend when my mom and three siblings come to visit me here. And guess what, my friend got online last night. We talked about the business. His business, the expansion he's been planning. The strategies, etc. etc. After a few minutes, he said, "hey, listen, I am trying to create a job for you here" I was like "whaaaaaat????" I mean, we've got a project on going, and well, he's already given me payments in advance. And he just believed in me so much that he wants to get me involved in other projects. So to finalize, he said, I want you to lead a team, to do this and that. I will have to make a list of everything and make you work on it. Take the lead. I said "okay, sure, I'm in." He was suddenly asking, how much I am making a week, with my current job. And was teasing me I was stuttering with my answer. LOL. Then He said, "hey, what's your paypal account again?" I wasn't expecting any payment yet. The new project he's proposing haven't been started. But I did gave him my paypal account. And guess what. He was unresponsive a couple of minutes, then got back to me and said. Okay dude, sent you some biscuits. Few minutes later. I received a notification from PayPal, I got $20.00 in an instant. Such a great dude. So for this discussion. Do biscuits really cost that much in Canada? Or in the US? LOL. How about you, what blessing got your way yesterday? chuyins

Trust is built in the course of the transaction. I was just so open to him. I tell them those things where i got some difficulties, and would also be honest if I could do it or not. And he's quite a very considerate employer. Well, he's a stress reliever/therapist, so he doesn't want to get stressed at any of his dealings. And was just so generous. A very great soul I met online! Thanks for the compliments. God bless you too. See ya around.

this is a great post. i love the story and love your friend who is so generous. Well, i was just browsing the net and it landed me here. Guess, i needed this huh? It somewhat inspires me. I don't know, maybe its because of the unexpected blessing that you receive. And got me thinking, yeah? i receive a lots of blessing everyday and sometimes i just can't see it.. now, im thinking differently.. well at least for now.. :) thanks.

Yeah, while life could throw us a lot of lemons not apples. We can still recognize it as a blessing by making lemonade. I was really grateful for GOD's blessing each and every day. And last night was another blast of His manifestation as a source of blessing and as a good provider. Thanks for dropping by rona. God bless.

I bet he is doing great in his business. So that explains for his generosity. Besides, he knows that you truly are a good person, worthy to be shared some blessings. You said , you were broke prior to that. Well, God made a way for HIM to send you HIS help. God really is a good provider for people who really believes in him. Just keep on being nice and good.

True enough Simplyd. GOD always provides for our needs. Sometimes though, I tend to forget that we have a great provider by worrying so much on my finances. But just last night, He reminded how great He is as a provider. And that holds true forever. Thanks for those kind words though. I appreciate it. I also thank GOD for such people who trusted me so much. God bless you. See ya!

You said that he was your employer first before he became your friend. What kind of work did you do for him? Not sure if you are on my friends list or not, I'll check. If you are not on my list, I'll send a friend request.

Good for you friend. Could you tell him to send me some biscuits as well? LOL! We all know what he meant by those anyway, bucks, biscuits, etc as they're called! You are a trustworthy person and he just have enough confidence in you. God sure knows how to bless people! Have a nice weekend!

why not? haha yeah, he's really that generous. A few months with my sister's incident. He also sent me $100.00. He was a great friend indeed and really have a big heart. I do appreciate how much he trusted me with almost everything. Talking to me about almost everything. I pray and hope that I could live up to his confidence and trust. So thankful to GOD for blessing me. When GOD blesses it doesn't necessarily mean, you deserve it. He just got to bless. And I am so thankful for it. See ya around friend! Great Saturday Morning!

That's great: isn't it brilliant when you work hard for a client and they appreciate it, as well as becoming distant friends? I'm lucky enough to have one of those, too (who actually bailed me out of a really tough situation about a year ago with a significant amount of advance pay). Biscuits don't cost that much, by the way: it's like saying "I'll buy you coffee" and meaning lunch. Sounds like a nice, fun employer! Congratulations on your virtual promotion, too. Make sure you get some project/task software to keep track of all your slaves. Er, team mates!

I actually nailed just one project with him. And after such project, he gave me another one. And while that another job is on going, he just added another one. A promotion actually. I was just feeling so blessed to have been trusted so much. Grateful really. Thanks for explaining on the biscuit thing. You pointed it out clearly. LOL. slaves eh? I'd like to call them team mates.

It sounds like he got more than he expected from you, which is great. I still have an email from my main client in which he said that my feedback on his business was more important and valuable than any of the concrete work I'd done for him - by pointing out things I'd noticed, I helped his business and gave more than he expected. More than two years later, he's still sending me work! It definitely pays to over-deliver. Just remember to put a whip on the list of birthday presents you'd like.

we actually agreed on something, but I insisted on something better. I was thinking of my reputation though (on the service that I provide) and he keeps telling me, if it takes a 100 years to do it, just do what I just needed no need to be 100% all the time. But I said, no, we have to make the most out of it. And yeah, from his feedback, he just said, "chuyins, worked more than what is expected" but for me, it's just but right to do it. Since I'm rendering my service, I want it to be with excellence and best quality.

It is really nice to see that other people are getting money! I am currently in a slump and in debt $156 on Paypal. I feel emotionally stressed and I try to rely on the Internet to help me out! I hope I can find a friend like yours to help me in these economically hard times! Cheers, and I hope you have more luck!

God will always provide for all that we need. I believe you can find one, or you can work it out for yourself. What are you into online? I mean are you employed online or whatever?

I believe GOD blessed me with that. I did trust Him despite every circumstance. And surely GOD knows how to bless people, He looks at our heart not our circumstances and sins. Bout my friend. He's just got a big heart. I don't know what comes to his mind. He just sent me some bucks out of nowhere.
