Be thankful for what we have, many dont have anything.
£33,000,000 is a lot of money, the lottery winners in Hawick have some huge decisions to make, it set me thinking what would all that money buy?
5,500,000 copies of the long shot for starters but that's selfish isn't it.
Gumelemi Cay Island in the Caribbean a snip at £9,000,000
7590 top class racing horses
An outstanding Perthshire Estate £2,500,000 with its own castle
1,269,230 swims for your dog in our hydrotherapy centre
Whichever way you look at it it's a lot of money, we can all dream.
So I though to cheer us non winners up (I so hate the word loser) you might like to hear a story about Phil, he had a tough time....
The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers.
Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two months ago, my
husband, Phil, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed.
The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him."
You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain
that poor Phil must have experienced.
"Phil was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him
We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to
piece together the crushed remnants of Phil's scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in
Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined
the horrible surgery performed on Phil.
"Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "Thank the Lord, Phil is out of the hospital and
the doctors say that with time his scrotum should recover completely." All the men sighed
with unified relief.
The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say.
A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He said, "I'm Phil."
The entire congregation held its breath. "I just want to tell my wife the word is sternum."
Have a great day
