Make a Difference Day

Today our church is co-sponsoring "Making a Difference Day," along with one of our local Christian radio stations and a local TV station. We are supposed to show God's love in a practical way today by showing kindness to a stranger. Specifically, if we go to a drive-thru to get coffee or a meal, we are encouraged to pay for the order of the person behind us in line. We can then leave a flyer, explaining why we paid for the order, with the clerk and ask that he or she pass it on to the customer. I thought that was a great, yet simple, way to show God's love to people we don't know. And, as an added bonus, it is a great reason to have McDonald's french fries, or a Sonic Coke, or, well, you get the idea...
I thought I'd pass this along, and give you my permission to stop at a drive-thru on your way home sometime this week! *wink*
So, tell me. What is your favorite fast food item?

This is a great idea! My boss actually had this happen to her a couple months ago and she was so excited!
I love me some McDonald's fries! :)

You'll have to let me know how Indiana Jones is?! How fun!

I've always thought it was fun to pay for the person behind me. I've wanted to start doing that on Fridays just to make someone's day. I've never thought to leave a flyer or note.
My favorite is chick-fil-a and Sonic for drinks!
