Working at the post office, I’m used to dealing with a moody public.
So when one irate customer stormed my desk, I responded in my calmest voice, “What’s the trouble?”
“I went out this morning,” she began, “and when I came home I found a card saying the mailman tried to deliver a package but no one was home.
I’ll have you know, my husband was in all morning! He never heard a thing!”
After apologizing, I got her parcel.
“Oh good!” she gushed. “We’ve been waiting for this for ages!”
“What is it?” I asked.
“My husband’s new hearing aid.”
The main purpose of holding children’s parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.
Thought for the day
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)
The right attitude is to always keep your plans submitted to God. Make your plans but say, “God, if this is what You want, this is the direction I’m going to go. I’m doing this with flexible faith.”
