Daily Good Stuff 203

Monday, Monday, Monday! You love it; I love it. It’s time to get this day started…the right way.

Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now. Denis Waitley

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8
Johnny and his wife went to the State Fair every year. Every year Johnny would say, “I’d like to ride in that aeroplane.” And every year his wife would say, “I know, Johnny, but that aeroplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars.” This one year Johnny and his wife went to the fair and Johnny said, “I’m 71 years old. If I don’t ride that aeroplane this year I may never get another chance.”

“That aeroplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars.”, replied his wife.

The pilot overheard them and said, “Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won’t charge you, but if you say one word it’s ten dollars.”

Johnny and his wife agree and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard. He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word. They land and the pilot turns to Johnny, “By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn’t.”

Johnny replied, “Well, I was gonna say something when my wife fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars.”

Good news is a slight mystery, but there’ enough info to get the gist. A man overheard some sad news in a diner and decided to pay for their meal. He wrote a vague note:
‘Do me a favor and bring me their check too. Someone just got diagnosed. Don’t tell them”
I’m leaning towards cancer, but we’ll never really know. But, do we need to?
Here’s some weird news you’ll get a kick out of. A grand father won $200,000 for a bet in a soccer game. Sounds like same old same old until you realize what the bet was. Granddad bet that his 18-month old grandson would play for their country’s soccer team. At age 16, the bet paid off. Talk about investing in the future.
Have a fantastic day!
