A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for  kids  darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought  he  saw something.

As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into  the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back  to  the spot where the brick had been thrown.  The angry driver then
jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid  and  pushed him up
against a parked car shouting, "What was that all  about  and who are you?

Just what the heck are you doing? That's a new car  and  that brick you threw
is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do  it?"

The young boy was apologetic. "Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but  I  didn't know what else to do," He pleaded.  "I threw the brick because  no  one else would stop..." With tears dripping down his face and off his  chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car. "It's my  brother," he said.

"He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift  him up."

Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, "Would  you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too  heavy for me."

Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back  into the wheelchair, then took out his fancy handkerchief and dabbed at the  fresh scrapes and cuts.

A quick look told him everything was going to be okay. "Thank you  and may God bless you," the grateful child told the stranger.

Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home.

It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door.

He kept the dent there to remind him of this message "Don't go through  life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!"

God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts.  Sometimes when  we  don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's our choice to listen or not.

Thought for the Day:

God sends you flowers every spring. He sends you a sunrise every morning. Face it, friend-He is crazy about you!

 God didn't promise days without pain,  laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. Living is not in how many breaths we take, but in how many moments take our breath away.

Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much
