BY: SusanD

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.

"Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?"
The young man said, "How about 50 dollars?" The man agreed and told him that the paint and ladders that he might need were in the garage. The man's wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, "Does he realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?"

The man replied, "That’s his problem, he was standing on the porch."

A short time later, the new handy-man came to the door to collect his money.

"You're finished already?" he asked.

"Yes," he answered, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats. "Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50.

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

Today's Spiritual Quote
The testimony of a good conscience will make the comforts of heaven descend upon a man's weary head like refreshing dew or shower upon a parched land. It will give him lively earnests and secret anticipations of approaching joy; it will bid his soul go out of the body undauntedly, and lift up his head with confidence before saints and angels. end quote
