A Little Humor with a Message
A man is walking along when suddenly he got his foot caught in some
railroad tracks. He tried to get it out, but it was really stuck in
there well. He heard a noise and turned around to see a train coming. He
panicked and started to pray, "God, please get my foot out of these
tracks and I'll stop drinking!"
Nothing happened, it was still stuck, and the train was getting closer!
He prayed again, "God, please get my foot out and I'll stop drinking AND
Still nothing...and the train was just seconds away! He tried it one
last time, "God please, if you get my foot out of the tracks, I'll quit
drinking, swearing and smoking." Suddenly his foot shot out of the
tracks and he was able to dive out of the way, just as the train passed.
He got up, dusted himself off, looked toward Heaven and said... "Thanks
anyway God, I got it myself."........
An overweight colleague of mine decided it was time to shed some
excess pounds. He took his new diet seriously, even changing his driving
route to avoid his favorite bakery. One morning, however, he arrived at
work carrying a gigantic coffeecake. We all scolded him, but his smile
remained cherubic. "This is a very special coffeecake," he explained. "I
accidentally drove by the bakery this morning and there in the window
were a host of goodies. I felt this was no accident, so I prayed, 'Lord,
if you want me to have one of those delicious coffeecakes, let me have a
parking place directly in front of the bakery.' And sure enough," he
continued, "the eighth time around the block, there it was!"……..
