A young man was getting ready to Graduate College. For many

months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and

knowing his father

could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted. As

Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car.

Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible.

Angrily, he raised his voice at his father and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book. He never contacted his father again for long long time. Many years passed and the young man was very successful in

business.He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him

since that graduation day.Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling

him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things.

When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled

his heart. He began to search his father's important papers and saw the still new Bible just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages.

As he read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his

graduation, and the words..PAID IN FULL. How many times do we miss GOD blessings because they are not

packaged as we expected?

If this touched your heart, please recommend it to others, does not matter what religion you belong to... the message is for everyone.

Thought today is the right day when we all will need to read this nice,short story, As today is the day of big suspense. Some will be happy and some will be not.

But remember GOD has his own way of blessing everyone. Everything that one expect may not come in the way you expect.

So trust HIM and be happy with JOY(ce)
