Q: I laid in bed this morning, after two messages of negative news for my business yesterday, and wondered and asked Him what my direction should be and for energy/motivation to keep going?
A: Sometimes life puts us through a test. Our journey might have delays, setbacks and disappointments that are tough to take. Just know there’s more in store even when customers aren’t knocking at your door.

Wise Crack – (A good laugh or timeless quote that stirs the soul.)
The minister of a city church enjoyed a drink now and then, but his passion was for peach brandy. One of his congregants would make him a bottle during the holidays. One year, when the minister went to visit his friend, hoping for his usual gift, he was not disappointed, but his friend told him that he had to thank him for the peach brandy from the pulpit the next Sunday.
In his haste to get the bottle, the minister hurriedly agreed and left. So the next Sunday the minister suddenly remembered that he had to make a public announcement that he was being supplied alcohol from a member of the church. That morning, his friend sat in the church with a grin on his face, waiting to see the minister’s embarrassment.
The minister climbed into the pulpit and said, “Before we begin, I have an announcement. I would very much like to thank my friend, Joe, for his kind gift of peaches … and for the spirit in which they were given!”
