The Locked Car

Never doubt God's wisdom (and sense of humor!)

A woman received a phone call from her sitter that her daughter was sick with a high fever.  She left work and stopped by the pharmacy for medication.  Returning to her car, she found she had locked her keys inside.  She didn't know what to do.  She called her home to talk to the sitter, and was told her daughter was getting worse.

The sitter said, "Find a coat hanger and use that to open the door."  The woman found an old rusty coat hanger on the ground, then looked at the hanger and said, "I don't know how to use this."  She bowed her head and asked God for help.

An old rusty car pulled up, driven by a dirty, greasy, bearded man with a biker skull rag on his head.  The woman thought, "Oh, great!  This is what You sent to help me?", but she was desperate, and thankful.

The man got out of his car and asked if he could help.  She said, "Yes, my daughter is very sick.  I must get home to her.  Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?"

He said, "Sure!"  He walked over to the car and in seconds the car door was opened.  She hugged the man and through her tears she said, "THANK YOU SO MUCH!  You are a very nice man."

He replied, "Lady, I ain't a nice man.  I just got out of prison for car theft."

The woman hugged him again and cried out loud, "THANK YOU, GOD, FOR SENDING ME A PROFESSIONAL."
