    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 a linen 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:

    If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.

    If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.

    He sends you flowers every spring.

    He sends you a sunrise every morning.

    Face it, friend - He is crazy about you!
