~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Ability is what you're capable of doing.
Motivation determines what you do.
Attitude determines how well you do it.

As I started weeding my flower boxes, a friend came by to pay for an item she had purchased from me. Perfect, I thought. Now I can buy a new camera. While taking a photojournalism class at college, the shutter on my camera had suffered a fatality. Since I couldn't afford either the repair or a new camera, this timely sale was just the solution I needed.

As I resumed my duties, the Holy Spirit reminded me of the little boy I had met while on a mission trip building an orphanage in Bolivia three months earlier. I had promised God that someday I would help that little boy. Was that day now? But how could I finish my photojournalism class without a camera? I fought back and forth— little boy, camera — and then finally decided: I would send the money to Bolivia, and if God wanted me to finish my class, He would provide me with a solution. I immediately wrote out a check and put it in the mailbox.

An hour later the mail carrier arrived. Not only did he pick up my check, but he also left me a handful of bills. At the bottom of the pile lay an unmarked envelope. I couldn't believe what it contained— an unexpected check for the mount of a new camera.

His beloved old white convertible was in deplorable shape, but he refused to get rid of it. So when the old junker was stolen from his office parking lot, his family was delighted. Nonetheless, they called the police and filed an insurance claim.

Their relief was short-lived, within an hour an officer was on the phone. "We found the car less than a mile away," he said, trying to restrain himself. "It had a note on it that read, 'Thanks anyway, we'd rather walk.'"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

"Authorities now know that approximately one person in sixteen who ever takes a social drink will become an alcoholic! How many of you would get on an airplane if before it took off you knew there was a 1 out of 16 chance that it would crash and destroy your life. Actually, the odds for a commercial airliner crashing are closer to 1 out of 1,000,000; but even with those odds some people will not fly. Yet many of these same people will take a drink!" - Zig Ziglar
