The Brick

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I received this in an email and just wanted to share it with all of you.


A young, 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!

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.

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

I like that line, "If God had a refridgerator, your picture would be on it!"

Thanks for sharing!
