    The Brick!!!


    Read It.

    Read this today and

    don't delete it even if

    you are too busy!! You'll




    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


    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


    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

    If God had a

    refrigerator, your picture would be on


    If He had a wallet,

    your photo would be in


    He sends you flowers

    every spring.

    He sends you a sunrise

    every morning Face it, friend - He is crazy about

    God didn't promise

    days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun

    without rain, but He did promise strength for the

    slowly and let it sink

    it, He will bring you through it

  • Gosh, I am jealous of you! 🙂

    I wish I will have children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren one day, just like you. I want to be surrounded by them, doesn't matter if they would overcrowded me sometimes. It would really be awesome.

    Love Texas! I was there a few months ago. Green, cliff, mountains etc....gosh. I don't have all these to adore at the place where I am at (outside USA). My dream is to move there someday!

    Thanks for offering us a shoulder to cry one! Have a wonderful "family" day!
