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
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
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 bles s 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 dmage was very noticeable,
but the driver never bothered to repair the
dented side door.
He kept the dent there to remind him of this

"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".

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.
