While recently waiting in line at the bank, I developed a very loud case of hiccups. Try as I might, I could not rid myself of them or conceal the embarrassing noise, and by the time I reached the teller's window, the hiccups seemed to have actually worsened.

The teller took my personal check I wished to cash and proceeded to run a computer verification of my account.

After a minute she looked up from her terminal with a frown and said that she would be unable to cash my check.

"Oh? What's wrong" I asked, getting slightly worried and beginning to feel a bit of anxiety creeping up my spine.

"I'm sorry, sir," she replied, "but our computer indicates that you do not have sufficient funds to cover this amount. As a matter of fact," she continued, "our records show your account overdrawn in excess of $5000."

"You have to be kidding!" I said.

After a short pause she smiled. "Yes, I am," she answered and began to cash the check.

"But you will notice that your hiccups are gone." **********************************************************

For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. -II Corinthians 4:15
