"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio

In 1990, a woman entered a Haagen-Dazs store in Kansas City for an ice cream cone. While she was ordering, another customer entered the store. She placed her order, turned and found herself staring face to face with Paul Newman. He was in town filming a movie. His blue eyes made her knees buckle. She finished paying and quickly walked out of the store with her heart still pounding.

Gaining her composure she suddenly realized that she didn't have her cone. She turned to go back in. At the door she met Paul Newman who was coming out. He said to her, "Are you looking for your ice cream cone?"

Unable to utter a word, she nodded yes.

"You put it in your purse with your change."
