Man was tired of going to
work everyday, while his wife
stayed home. He wanted her to
see what he went through so he
'Dear Lord: I go to work
... every day and put in 8 hours while
my wife merely stays at home. I
want her to know what I go
through. So, please allow her body
to switch with mine for a day.'
God, in His infinite wisdom,
granted the man's wish. ... The
next morning, sure enough, the
man awoke as a woman (his wife)... He
arose, cooked breakfast for his
mate... awakened the kids, set out
their school clothes, fed them
breakfast, packed their lunches,
drove them to school, came home
and picked up the dry cleaning, took
it to the cleaners and stopped at the
bank to make a deposit, went
grocery shopping, then drove
home to put away the groceries,
paid the bills & balanced the check
book. He cleaned the cat's litter
box & bathed the dog... Then, it
was already 1 PM & he hurried to
make the beds, do the laundry,
vacuum, dust, sweep and mop the
kitchen floor. Ran to the school to
pick up the kids & got into an
argument with them on the way
home. Set out milk & cookies and
got the kids organized to do their
homework. Then, set up the
ironing board & watched TV while
he did the ironing. At 4:30 he
began peeling potatoes &
washing vegetables for salad,
breaded the pork chops &
snapped fresh beans for supper.
After supper, he cleaned the
kitchen, ran the dishwasher,
folded laundry, bathed the kids &
put them to bed. At 9 PM He was
exhausted, though his daily
chores weren't finished, he went
to bed where he was expected to
make love, which he managed to
get through without complaint.
The next morning, he awoke and
immediately knelt by the bed and
said: 'Lord, I don't know what I
was thinking. I was so wrong to
envy my wife's being able to stay
home all day. Please, Oh! Please, let
us trade back.. Amen!' The Lord, in
His infinite wisdom, replied: "My
son, I feel you have learned your
lesson and I will be happy to change
things back to the way they were.
But, you'll have to wait till 9PM

Be contempted with your position, everyone has his/part to play

This is a miracle that happened recently in Victoria Island in Lagos State Nigeria . A boy (John)& girl (Anne) loved each other so much and so sincerely. They used to chat on their mobile phones for hours. In order to reduce the expenses both of them got the same network SIM cards. The guy went abroad for a month on an official trip. The girl died in an accident. The girl's last wish was to be buried along with her mobile phone:'(. After a month the guy called the girl's mom and said, "Aunty, I'll be coming tomorrow. I want this to be a surprise, so please don't tell Anne." The lady didn't know what to say. The next day, the guy came and asked about Anne. Everyone told him the truth but he said "Don't joke with me. I spoke with her just yesterday." Nobody believed him. Suddenly the guy's mobile phone rang and displayed "INCOMING CALL, ANNE".He immediately put the phone on loudspeaker. It was clearly Anne's voice. They were all shocked. Then they realised that the girl was using

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger. "God, how could you do this to me!", he cried. Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?", asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going badly. But we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground--it just may be a smoke signal that summons The Grace of God.

One day a man saw an old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her. Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry. He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was those chills which only fear can put in you. He said, “I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.” Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt. As he was tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only just passing through. She couldn’t thank him enough for coming to her aid. Bryan just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she owed him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She already imagined all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped. Bryan never thought twice about being paid. This was not a job to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows there were plenty, who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way. He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed, and Bryan added, “And think of me.” He waited until she started her car and drove off. It had been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home, disappearing into the twilight. A few miles down the road the lady saw a small cafe. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she made the last leg of her trip home. It was a dingy looking restaurant. Outside were two old gas pumps. The whole scene was unfamiliar to her. The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe her wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t erase. The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving to a stranger. Then she remembered Bryan. After the lady finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her hundred dollar bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the door. She was gone by the time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered where the lady could be. Then she noticed something written on the napkin. There were tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: “You don’t owe me anything. I have been there too. Somebody once helped me out, the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: Do not let this chain of love end with you.” Under the napkin were four more $100 bills. Well, there were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill, and people to serve, but the waitress made it through another day. That night when she got home from work and climbed into bed, she was thinking about the money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known how much she and her husband needed it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be hard…. She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered soft and low, “Everything’s going to be all right. I love you, Bryan Anderson.” There is an old saying “What goes around comes around.” Wharever good act you perfom God will never fail to compernsate you in a different way beyond your wildest imagination... God Bless You!

dEBT PAId!!!

It is August in a small town on the South Coast of France, holiday season is in full swing, but it is raining so there is not too much business happening. Everyone is heavily in debt. Luckily, a rich Russian tourist arrives in the foyer of the small local hotel. He asks for a room and puts a 100 eruo note on the reception counter, takes a key and goes to inspect the room located up the stairs on the third floor. The hotel owner takes the banknote in hurry and rushes to his meat supplier to whom he owes 100 euros. The butcher takes the money and races to his wholesale supplier to pay his debt. The wholesaler rushes to the farmer to pay 100 euros for pigs he purchased some time ago. The farmer triumphantly gives the 100 euro note to a local prostitute who gave him her services on credit. The prostitute goes quickly to the hotel, as she owed the hotel for her hourly room use to entertain clients, and lays the 100 euros on the counter. At that moment, the rich Russian is coming down to reception and informs the hotel owner that the proposed room is unsatisfactory and takes his 100 euros back and departs. There was no profit or income. But everyone no longer has any debt and the small town people look optimistically towards their future.

Pay your debts as soon as you can.

Damian and Henry joined a
wholesale company together
just after graduation. Both
worked very hard. After several
years, the boss promoted Henry
to sales executive but Damian
remained a sales rep.
One day Damian could not take it
anymore, tender resignation to
the boss and complained the
boss did not value hard working
staff, but only promoted those
who flattered him. The boss
knew that Damian worked very
hard for the years, but in order
to help Damian realize the
difference between him and
Henry, the boss asked Damian to
do the following. Go and find
out anyone selling water melon
in the market? Damian returned
and said yes. The boss asked how
much per kg? Damian went back
to the market to ask and
returned to inform boss the
N350 per kg. Boss told Damian, I
will ask Henry the same
question? Henry went, returned
and said, boss, only one person
selling water melon. N350 per
kg, N1050 for 10 kg, he has
inventory of 340 melons. On the
table 58 melons, every melon
weighs about 15 kg, bought from
the North two days ago, they are
fresh and red, good quality.
Damian was very impressed and
realized the difference between
himself and Henry. He decided
not to resign but to learn from
My dear friends, a more
successful person is more
observant, think more and
understand in depth. For the
same matter, a more
successful person sees several
years ahead, while you see only
tomorrow. The difference
between a year and a day is 365
times, how could you win? Think!
how far have you seen ahead in
your life? How thoughtful in
depth are you?

Anfal, a rich young girl, sat
waiting impatiently at the
doctor’s clinic to get the
results of a medical test. She
was in a hurry to attend a party
and feared she might be late
for her appointment with the
hairdresser. She never thought
the result would be anything
important. It was just a
precaution insisted upon by her
family. She had never suffered
any serious illness, apart from
the odd ache in her never
suffered any serious illness,
apart from the odd ache in her
limbs. Then, it was her turn to
see the doctor. She hurried
inside to get it over with as
quickly as possible. She was
surprised to see the doctor look
sad and concerned as he asked,
“Is this yours?”
She answered, “No, it is my
She wanted to know the truth
and thought that perhaps he
would hide the truth, if she
told him it was her own. He
asked her to have a seat, so she
sat feeling somewhat afraid.
She looked at him anxiously, as
he said,“Why did not you
send a man to get the
Anfal said, “It was on my way
so there was no need to send
someone else.”The doctor
looked sadly at her and said,
“You seem to be an educated
girl. You understand the nature
of life.”He stopped talking,
and she began to tremble.
She asked, “What do you
mean doctor?”The doctor
said, “The result indicates that
there is a blood disease.” He
looked down at his papers and
remained silent. Anfal had to
ask him to give her more
information. She cried in fear,
“Is it cancer?”He did not
look at her, but a cloud of
sadness covered his face. It was
as if he was sentencing her to
death.She said in a broken
voice, “I am finished then.”
The doctor knew then that she
had lied, but it was too late to
hide the truth. He looked kindly
at her and said, “I am sorry
for you. Why did you lie?
Anyway life and death are
matters within Allah’s power.
Many sick people live long and
many healthy ones die.”Anfal
felt as if she were drowning, as
if a hard fist was cruelly
squeezing her heart. She tried
hard to regain her strength and
said, “I do apologize. Thank
you doctor.”
The doctor encouraged her
saying, “Be strong and
optimistic. Medical science is
constantly progressing. Some
of today’s incurable
sicknesses can be cured
tomorrow I still have hope.
Leave me your telephone
number.” She repeated the
number automatically without
knowing what she was saying.
Feeling great shock and
bitterness, she again thanked
the doctor and left.
At home she kept the truth to
herself. She did not know how
to share it. Anyway, everyone
was busy, getting ready for the
party. Her mother asked,
“Have you been to the
doctor? Why did not you go to
the hairdresser?” It was just a
by-the-way question, needing
no answer. She briefly said, “I
am not going to the
party !”She went upstairs into
her room and locked the
door.She stretched out on her
bed fully clothed and listened
to her family’s voices, as if
they were coming from a far
away place. The wind seemed
to her to be a funeral sad tune,
lamenting her approaching
death. The bedroom seemed
strange to her as she would be
leaving it soon. What about the
house? It would not remember
her. She was just a guest.
Others would take her room
and soon forget her. She tried
to cry but tears did not help.
She looked around her in pain.
Those curtains that she had
tried so hard to get, would stay
after her. It would not have
mattered if they had been
made of the roughest fabric,
she would leave them for
others. She wished she had not
troubled herself for such
things. She wished she had
saved her time and money for
more useful things, which
could have been helpful to her
in her difficulty.She wondered,
“What is useful to me?”
She was young, beautiful and
rich with everything her heart
could desire. Could anything
help her and save her from
death? She had always longed
for an official job with a good
salary. She had it, but could it
save her from death?An idea
struck her. She hurried to the
phone while everyone was
away. She dialed the doctor’s
number and asked eagerly, “If
I travel abroad can I find a
cure?”He said, “There is
nothing new abroad. It is a
waste of money.”She put the
phone down and sat on a
nearby chair.Her salary would
not change matters.
She walked through the
house’s rooms as if saying
her farewells. She paced the
small garden and looked at the
trees. She whispered, “I wish
these trees knew I am leaving
them, those stones, walls…I
wish these doors knew my
hands will soon no longer open
them. I wish those flowers,
that I planted and watered
knew. How often the thorns
and hard stones tore my hands!
How often I watered those
dying flowers with my tears
when there was no water. I
wish they knew the meaning of
my departure. These fruiting
trees were tiny when I planted
them. I did my best to help
them flourish until they grew
up healthy and fruitful. Will
they know I am soon leaving?
Will they remember my days in
their company? What about
these seats, I used to rest on.
Will they miss my presence?
Will they be ready for someone
else to settle on them? My
writing desk felt my writing in
tears and in smiles, does it
know I am leaving? Will it miss
my pen and papers in its
I wish they all knew I am
leaving. I wish I had known I
was leaving, then I would not
have cared so much for this
life. I would not have felt proud
and arrogant…Had I known I
were a guest in this world I
would not have been cheated
or tempted by its luxuries…
Had I known this I would have
been aware that leaving a
simple life is easier than leaving
a luxurious one… Had I lived a
simple life, I would not have
found it difficult to cross from
this world to the next. My
family is now enjoying the
party…how often I longed for
such parties, how much I cared
for fashion and hairstyles! Can
they help me now?”
Anfal threw herself down on
the nearest chair as if she had
realized a truth previously
unknown to her. She said,
“What shall I take with me?
Nothing but the coffin and my
deeds. What kind of deeds will
go with me on my long
journey? Nothing! Yes,
nothing!” She remembered
her friend Sarah, who used to
advise her and guide her to the
right path of Allah.
She used to remind her of the
Qur’anic verse: …
and make
provision, for the provision is
the guarding of oneself.
She had never considered the
importance of good deeds.
Now she was in need of such
deeds to present to Allah. She
would stand to give her
account, but what would she
say? How could she expect
Allah’s mercy when she
disobeyed His orders? How
could she ask for forgiveness
when she never even thought
of obeying Him in her life’s
affairs? She wished she had
read the Holy Qur’an instead
of all those cheap novels. She
wished she had gained some
knowledge of her religion
instead of reading film-star
magazines. She continued
wishing she had done few
things, and not done other
things. She wished she had not
angered this person or that,
and had never lied or gossiped
about anyone. She wished she
had not been proud and
despised the poor.
She said, “I wish I could start
my life all over again to make-
up for my errors and to obey
Allah’s orders. I worshipped
my desires and ignored my
Creator. I wish I could live for a
while to make up for my
She remembered a Qur’anic
verse, her grandfather used to
Until when death
overtakes one of them he says:
Send me back, my Lord. Haply I
may do good in that which I
have left. By no means! It is a
mere word that he speaks, and
before them is a barrier until
the day they are raised. (AI-
Here she said, “Oh God, I do
mean it…”
Tears burst from her eyes. She
cried bitterly in repentance, not
pain. She decided to obey Allah
in all His orders if she lived a bit
longer. The phone rang and she
walked towards it lazily. Tears
in her eyes she said, “Yes?”
Someone said, “Can I speak to
Miss Anfal?” She knew the
speaker. It was her doctor.
She said, “Yes,
speaking.”The doctor said
cheerfully, “Congratulations
my daughter! There is nothing
wrong with you. Thank God!”
She was stunned with surprise.
She did not know what to say.
“No disease? How? You are
joking, doctor!”
The doctor said, “May Allah
protect me I am not joking. I
have just got an apology from
the analyst. He explained that
there was a mix-up with the
names. Your name was written
instead of someone else. I have
your medical report here in
front of me. You are quite well.
Be thankful to Allah my
Excitedly she said, “Thanks be
to Allah, Thank you doctor.”
She put the phone down,
feeling as if she was new born.
She knew she was safe for a
while, but death would
certainly come one day. She
had no time to waste. However
long she lived she was a guest.
The first thing she did was to
perform her prayer, which she
had neglected for a long time.
She promised Allah to obey His
orders to pray, fast, and stick
to wearing decent clothes. She
would also give up whatever
Allah had forbidden. In order
not to forget this, she wrote
the Qur’anic verse on a
placard and hung it on the wall.
On the other side she wrote a
wise saying:
“Repent the day before you
die. Because you do not know
when you will die, then always
be repentant.”

Whether you are a Barca fan or not, everyone admits that Lionel Messi is a delight to watch playing football. Messi plays for Barcelona FC. He is a three-time FIFA World Player of the Year. Five days ago, he scored five times( a Champions League record and also a personal record). Yesterday he scored another two goals. Messi scored 53 goals in 55 matches for his club last season. He already has 50 in 43 matches so far this campaign. Many people believe he is one of the greatest football players the world has even seen. But Messi has not always been successful. At age ten , Messi faced a major threat to his future soccer career; he had a growth hormone deficiency. This deficiency would limit his ability to cope with the physical demands of football. Messi desperately needed growth hormones or he would have stopped growing at 4ft 7in but his father's health insurance was limited and couldn't cover the expensive treatment. The story changed when Barcelona offered to pay for the hormone treatment in return for Messi signing for them aged just 13. Today, Messi is scoring, Barca is winning and both Messi and Barca are happy and successful.

1. Employers need to see the gold in their staff. In that physically- retarded boy with health challenges was a star of the future. Invest in your staff.

2. Your health challenge could seem to be a huge problem, but help is on its way.

3. Nothing limits you. Till date, Messi is relatively smaller than his mates, could be weak but he is still playing excellent football. You have no excuse.

4. God compensates for your weaknesses. Messi is short. As a result he has a low center of gravity. This makes it difficult for him to fall down easily. Messi has short legs, but they are fast too.

5. Finally, don't make judgement based on today, consider the future. While Messi was playing as a kid, he looked 2 years younger than his mates. If Barca had judged him based on that, they would have lost gold. Wow!!! In all, Messi's story confirms to me (FD) what I have always believed: "IT'S NOT WHAT YOU LACK THAT WILL SLOW YOU DOWN. NO! ITS WHAT YOU'VE GOT BUT DON'T KNOW HOW TO PUT IT TO ITS BEST USE". So let's settle this matter once and for all...EVERYTHING you NEED to START your journey to GREATNESS is already WITHIN YOU. Now, just go ahead and DELIVER THE FUTURE. You can. You must. You will.

There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the baker decides to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound or not and found that he was not. This angered him and he took the farmer to court. The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, your Honour, "I am primitive. I don't have a proper measure, but I do have a scale" The judge asked, "then how do you weigh the butter?" The farmer replied, "your honour, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day, when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed. It is the baker.
