A Heavy List
A poorly dressed woman with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery
store.She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he
would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was very
ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.The grocer
scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store.Visualing the family needs, she
said: "Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can."
The grocer told her he could not give her credit, as she did not have a charge account
at his store. Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the
conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that
he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very
reluctant voice, "Do you have a grocery list?" The woman replied," Yes sir,"
O.K." he said," put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list
weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries." The woman hesitated a moment with
a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and
scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with
her head still bowed. The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement
when the scales went down and stayed down.
The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly,
" I can't believe it." The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries
on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance, so he continued to put more
and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more. The grocer stood
there in utter discust.
Finally he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales with great amazement. It was not
a grocery list, it was a prayer which said, " Dear Lord, you know my needs and I'm
leaving this in your hands." The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and
stood in stunned silence.The woman thanked him and left the store. The customer
handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said, " It was worth every penny of it."

Your GUARDIAN ANGELS
A deeply religious man lived in a house by the river.
One day the banks burst and the house flooded.
As the water level rose alarmingly, the man climbed on to the roof of his house.
A boat came by, "Climb aboard ,called the captain."
"NO, I shall stay here," said the man." GOD will take care of me ."
Twenty minutes later, with the waters still rising, the man climbed on to the chimney.
Another boat came past.
" Jump aboard," said the captain.
" NO, I shall stay here , " said the man , " GOD will take care of me."
With the water now up to the man's waist, a helicopter suddenly swooped down.
" Quick!" shouted the pilot. "Climb aboard!"
"NO, I shall stay here, "said the man , "GOD will take care of me."
The water level continued to rise and soon the man was swept from the chimney
Up in heaven, he sought out GOD.
" I thought you said you would take care of me, " he complained.
GOD said: " I sent you two boats and a helicopter, What more did you want want?"
