Waffle Houses are where people go when they need a much-needed sugar fix. They can get what they need with peace and usually no chaos. But, that is not what this woman experienced. A woman who witnessed something amazing at a Waffle House in Panama City Beach in Florida took to Facebook in order to share her experience.
On the post, the woman, Paige Price freely admitted that although some people might think that she was a little weird for sharing what she did, she was compelled to shed some light on the moment that she experienced at the waffle house.
Here’s what she wrote, “Yes I snapped a picture of the waffle house workers, why? We are in Panama City Beach where I took this photo. We stopped here to eat at about 9ish. I overheard the manager say ‘It’s shift change’. No big deal right? I looked over and noticed all of the workers gathering around each other, in a circle, some holding hands, and some taking their hats off.”
Price said later that she imagined she must have had a confused and shocked look on her face as she witnessed this circular gathering of the waffle house employees. She went on to ask herself whether they were, “really about to pray before each of them went their separate ways if they were really about to PRAY and not care who they offended.”
“They gathered in their little circle, spoke a soft prayer, and went on about their business. Why am I posting this? The world that I’ve grown up in for 23 years is changing fast and to see this just made my heart smile,” she admitted, “Maybe there’s hope for our country after all. I applaud these people for standing up for what they believe in and not worrying about offending others or what others may think/say about them.”
Price’s Facebook post went viral as soon as she posted it. People started applauding both the waffle house employees for having a quick prayer session before shift change and Price for sharing that wonderful moment with the rest of the world.
A Mad World News reader commented on the Mad World News Facebook page that, “This should be done by more business, instead of taking everything down, and not saying things like God bless you and Merry Christmas.”
Another comment read, “This is showing we believe that Jesus Christ is our savior and we aren’t changing for anyone. We need more of this and less of the hate that’s overtake our world. Amen.”
“May the ‘shift change’ circle continue to circle through many more facilities that have the courage to do so,” said another commenter.
Yet another comment on the post that Price put up read, “Love this. It’s time that we all begin to fight and stand up for what we believe. And whether we believe it or not if the word of God says it, then we need to make a stand.”
