The Brick!!! Read It.

Read this today and don't delete it if you are too busy!! You'll see why.


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 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!

Send this to every 'beautiful person' you wish to bless.

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.

Read this line very slowly and let it sink in...

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
