    Default Kurtis the stock boy


    In a supermarket, Kurtis the stock boy, was busily working when a new
    voice came over the loud speaker asking for a carry out at register 4.
    Kurtis was almost finished, and wanted to get some fresh air, and decided
    to answer the call. As he approached the check-out stand a distant smile
    caught his eye, the new check-out girl was beautiful. She was an older
    woman (maybe 26, and he was only 22) and he fell in love.

    Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the punch clock to find out her name. She came into t he break room, smiled softly at him,
    took her card and punched out, then left. He looked at her card, BRENDA.
    He walked out only to see her start walking up the road. Next day, he
    waited outside as she left the supermarket, and offered her a ride home.
    He looked harmless enough, and she accepted. When he dropped her off, he
    asked if maybe he could see her again, outside of work. She simply said
    it wasn't possible.

    He pressed and she explained she had two children and she couldn't afford
    a baby-sitter, so he offered to pay for the baby-sitte. Reluctantly she
    accepted his offer for a date for the following Saturday.
    That Saturday night he arrived at her door only to have her tell him that
    she was unable to go with him. The baby-sitter had called and canceled.
    To which Kurtis simply said, "Well, let's take the kids with us."

    She tried to explain that taking the children was not an option, but again
    not taking no for an answer, he pressed. Finally Brenda, brought him
    inside to meet her children. She had an older daughter who was just as
    cute as a bug, Kurtis thought, then Brenda brought out her son, in a
    wheelchair. He was born a paraplegic with Down Syndrome.

    Kurtis asked Brenda, "I still don't understand why the kids can't
    come with us?" Brenda was amazed. Most men would run away from a woman
    with two kids, especially if one had disabilities - just like her first
    husband and father of her children had done. Kurtis was not ordinary - -
    - he had a different mindset.

    That evening Kurtis and Brenda loaded up the kids, went to dinner and the
    movies. When her son needed anything Kurtis would take care of him. When
    he needed to use the restroom, he picked him up out of his wheelchair,
    took him and brought him back.
    The kids loved Kurtis. At the end of the evening, Brenda
    knew this was the man she was going to marry and spend the rest of her
    life with.

    A year later, they were married and Kurtis adopted both of her children.
    Since then they have added two more kids.

    So what happened to Kurtis the stock boy and Brenda the check-out girl?
    Well, Mr. & Mrs. Kurt Warner now live in Arizona , where he is currently
    employed as the quarterback of the National Football League Arizona
    Cardinals and has his Cardinals in the hunt for a possible Super Bowl

    Is this a surprise ending or could you have guessed that he was not an
    ordinary person.

    It should be noted that he also quarterbacked the Rams in Super Bowl

    He has also been the NLF's Most Valuable Player twice and the Super Bowl's
    Most Valuable Player.


    Today at church our minister mentioned that when Kurt, his wife and 7
    children go out to eat he has one of his children pick out a family eating
    at the restaurant. Kurt then tells the wait staff he is picking up the tab
    for that family's dinner anonymously.
    He remembers the days he was working nights in the grocery store and
    feeding his family on food stamps.

    Makes it hard not to root for the Cardinals IN THE
    SUPER BOWL ...doesn't it ?

    Any excuse for non performance only weakens the charactor

    No joke intended here--this is the sort of story to tell your wife if she doesn't like to watch football. She'll watch this Sunday! Children's Ministry resources
