John was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn’t find a parking place.
Looking up toward heaven, he said, “Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to church every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up beer.”
Just then a parking place miraculously appeared!
John looked up again and said, “Never mind. I found one!”
You’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs before you find the handsome prince. But he probably isn’t going to be interested in some frog-kisser.
Thought for the day
“God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted” Matthew 5:4
It’s okay to grieve. When people are Christians, we know they will go on to Heaven, so we need not grieve like the world. Our grief can be different. We grieve because we’re going to miss them, but we can also be at peace because we know they are with God.
