You can't make someone else's choices. You shouldn't let someone else make yours. - Colin Powell

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
There was a time that I came into possession of a nice van while helping another family out of a financial crisis. It was an extra vehicle and I was not sure what I was going to do with it.
This particular evening I took a prayer walk around my neighborhood. When I got home, a neighbor came to my door. As soon as I walked in, she said that she wanted me to tell her about Jesus. As I was witnessing to my neighbor, a young friend, who was a seminary student, his wife and four children were coming in another door. George talked to them while I did what I needed to do for my Jesus.
After my neighbor left, we quickly fixed hot dogs for this family. My friend said "we need to talk to you." I had led his wife to the Lord several years before and they knew we loved them and would pray for them.
When we cleaned up the kitchen, we went into the living room where this young man said "we need for you to pray for us:" They had come from North Carolina and were going back in a couple of days. I knew it was a serious prayer request.
He said "we are about to go on the mission field in Mexico and our greatest need yet unfulfilled is for a van for these children."
I said "we have one in the front yard and you can have it:"
He couldn't believe it. He had no idea we had that van. I smiled because, that is just the way our Lord works. He knew all the time what I needed to do with that van.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A man looked at the menu at the airport restaurant, and saw that the sandwiches were named for planes. "I'll have a 'jumbo jet,'" he said.
When the order arrived, he was disappointed to see how small his burger was, but he ate it anyway. He called his waiter over. "Was that the 'jumbo jet?'" he asked.
"Yeah," the waiter answered. "Went pretty fast, didn't it?"

As a small boy I remember watching my father, who owned a grocery store, counting his earnings at the end of the day. I noticed that he put most of the money in one cash box and a smaller amount in another box. When I asked him why he did that he explained, 'Stuart, everything we have belongs to the Lord and he asks us to show that we understand that by giving back a portion to him and his work. If we don't do that it means we are keeping for ourselves that which really belongs to God. That's called stealing. So to make sure that does not happen, each day at the end of the day we put the Lord's portion in this box. It is his -- not ours!'
