An eager, but not too bright young man, wanting to earn some money, decided to hire himself out as a handyman and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood. He went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for him to do.

"And by the way," he added, "that's not a Porch, it's a Ferrari."

Sometimes we see clearly how they work, but most of the time, we don't understand the obvious ways we are supported. We forget that the angels are always there, always available, always willing, and always working for us. end quote
