Miracle Story

“Having A Bad Day, Mate?”

Your delivery at the Expect A Miracle School in Brisbane last Wednesday was a  catalyst for me writing and sharing.

 On Friday, I had to go to a Hardware and Garden Center on Rode Rd to buy 2 meters of garden soil for my gardens.

 The staff were all very busy and I waited patiently to be served.

 One man about 45 years old was on the phone and sounded a bit stressed.

 Being unattended by the other staff, he sort of finished the call with some frustration and worked at changing his countenance, as he politely asked what I wanted?

I asked: “Having a bad day, mate?”

He replied that he had had a few bad days, all around.

Ha! I thought! time for a “John Hinwood Fixer ”.

I had a few of your “Expect a Miracle Cards” with me to give away during that day.

 He accepted it with enthusiasm and I gave him  a brief explanation of the ‘idea’ of the card’s message.

 I asked if he would like a few for his work mates ?He said: Yes!

 I gave him about 5 extra cards and he quickly put them in his shirt pocket.He said he would give some to his own family also!

 I asked if Seniors got any discountsand he immediately agreed to give me ‘ Trade Discount’ on the 2 cubic meters of garden soil.

 Down from $68 M3 to $52.65 M3 ! Savings right there !

 Well!!  When the soil was delivered, my estimate is, that it was a lot more than 2 M3!!

I reckon it was about 3 M3!!

 I had to shovel and haul it around the units and gardens, before the rain came the next day.

It took about 7 hours for me to ‘handle’ the mountain of garden soil.



 A small miracle!

 Which saved on one hand and gave me a lot of good exercise over the Friday night and Saturday.


I will ‘wonder’ what miracles the ‘Expect a Miracle’ gift card will ‘create’ in that man’s life.

I am sure there are a lot more of such good stories to follow.


Thanks John
