Story of the Week
Tale Of A Taxi Driver
(Author Unknown)

A man walks into the street and manages to get a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, "Perfect timing. You're just like Frank."
Passenger:  "Who?"  

Cabbie: "Frank Feldman. He's a guy who did everything right - all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Frank - every single time."  

Passenger: "There are always a few clouds over everybody."  

Cabbie: "Not Frank. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand Slam at
tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano."

Passenger: "Sounds like he was something really special"  

Cabbie: "There's more.......He had a memory like a computer. Could remember everybody's  birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out."  

Passenger. "Wow, some guy then."  

Cabbie: "He always  knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams, not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them."    

Passenger. "Mmm, there's not many like him around."  

Cabbie: "And he knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good and never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too - the perfect man!"  

Passenger: "An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?"  

Cabbie: "Well, I never actually met Frank."    

Passenger:  "Then how do you know so much about him?"  

Cabbie: "I married his widow."   

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        Thank you for loving us the way that we Are. But… then again… Why wouldn't You? You Made us the way that we are. OK then… Help us to Love ourselves for the way that we are… the way that You made us.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
