Did you hear about the old lady who earned a living by peddling her wares? Each day when she came to a certain crossroads she would toss a stick up into the air. Whichever way the stick pointed when it landed was the way she went. One day a man saw her tossing the stick into the air: once, twice, then three times. He asked, ‘What are you doing?’ She said, ‘I’m letting God show me which way to go by using this stick.’ Looking at her curiously, he said, ‘But why did you throw it up three times?’ She replied, ‘Because the first two times He was pointing me in the wrong direction!’ Hello! When you don’t like the direction God gives you, do you pray, hoping He will change His mind and tell you what you want to hear?
