Several years ago, a preacher from out-of-state accepted a call to a church in Houston, Texas.
Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his
home to the downtown area.
When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given
him a quarter too much change.
As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, 'You'd better give
the quarter back.
It would be wrong to keep it.' Then he thought, 'Oh, forget it, it's
only a quarter.
Who would worry about this little amount?
Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it.
Accept it as a gift from God and keep quiet.'
When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, 'Here, you gave me too much change.'
The driver, with a smile, replied, 'Aren' t you the new preacher in town?
I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship.
I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change.
I'll see you at church on Sunday.'
When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, 'Oh God, I almost sold your Son for a quarter.'
Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read.
This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Christians
and will put us to the test!
Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself 'Christian.'
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
I'm glad a friend forwarded to me as a reminder. God bless you; I hope you are having a wonderful day!

disclaimer I recieved this email today and just thought "some" people would appreciate it. I know we don't discuss religion but this is special. Thanks Lisa

It's the little things that count.
Small deeds make or break a person.

I know I am way from perfect. With that said knowone needs to feel obligated on reminding me. I am also not making a judgement call on anyone in particular...got that too?! I have rules I foolow and don't have rules for you. SO ,,, I """ haven't """ been wondering what to do with all the proposals I have been getting lately from married men...I am clear on the rule I have always followed. I don't cheat, I don't help cheat, I don't. Thats all folks...you can have it from here.

Take care of the little things and the big things will take care of themselves.

You do not have to be religious to “do the right thing” wouldn’t it be a better world if everyone did?
