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."

We have all been helped and protected by our angels many times. It is common to hear someone say, "Somebody watched over me that day!" Or "The man upstairs must really love me." Think back and remember a time when you were helped against all reason.
