Quarters and Laughter

My morning devotional from "Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals," ended yesterday with five ways to become an answer to our prayers. There are a couple that I love:

One of them suggests that we, "Go down a line of parked cars and add money to the meters that are expired. Leave a little note saying something nice."

Another one reads, "Laugh at advertisements, especially ones that teach you that you can buy happiness."

How many of us were convinced on Friday last week that if we just won the lottery then we would be happy? How many of you joined in a litany of dreams about vacation houses, no jobs to report to and four carat diamond rings?

What if we started this day by packing our pockets with extra quarters and a load of laughter?
