46 Years Later, Lost Wallet Is Returned To Grateful Owner

It is a wonderful feeling to find something that has been missing, especially if it’s been gone for a long time. In this video, a lost wallet is returned to the grateful owner after 46 years.

Colleen Distin lives in Ventura, California. In 1975, she was going to see the movie Jaws and lost her wallet that evening at the Majestic Theater. The cleaning crew was unable to find it. Little did she know that 46 years later the theater would undergo renovations that would bring her prized possession filled with memories back to her.

Tom Stevens found the wallet in a crawlspace. In this clip, Colleen shares about rediscovering this missing treasure. Social media was used for good and she was able to claim her item. Colleen pulls out many of the pictures that were tucked inside. Photos were found of her mother and a trip to Mexico, and a concert ticket. The only thing that was not there was $200. The theater graciously gave her her missing $200 from 1975. . . with inflation. They generously gifted Colleen $1000! Colleen was moved to tears as she replied, “I’m speechless.” Filled with emotion, Colleen embraced her wallet’s finder, Tom.

The gift of giving is a joyful opportunity. I love how this video highlights the generosity of Tom and the employees of the Majestic Theater. They not only took the time to return the wallet to the rightful owner, but they blessed Colleen financially five times what was lost. This makes me think about how the Lord is able to do more than we can ask or imagine. He often works in unexpected ways, just like this video portrays.

"Now to him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, To him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen." Ephesians 3:20-21

A Prayer to Long for Heaven - Your Daily Prayer - July 18

Do you look forward to heaven? If I am being honest, my heart can be so focused on the now and building my “earthly kingdom” that I often miss the joy of focusing my thoughts and heart on eternal joys.
