In our travels we meet so many interesting people and I always love to hear their stories. Mr. Sam was at a concert this week and invited us to his restaurant. As we ate he began to share some of his life story. He had a lot of tragedies in a short time frame of his life. Enough to make a person want to give up but not Mr. Sam. At the age of 6 years old both of his parents were killed in an automobile accident. He and his older brother and younger sister then lived with his grandparents. At the age of 14 they also passed away. He really wasn’t sure what would happen next but an Aunt in MD took him and the grandmothers sister took the other two children. She raised him and put him through college.
I asked him if he ever felt sad about losing so much and he said no I’ve always been an optimistic kind, with the glass half full. Plus everywhere I went I always felt loved.
There were two things that struck my heart about his story. One that it matters how you react in life to its blows and punches. And secondly, that love will get you through a lot of things.
I can’t say that in my situations I always stayed positive, but I did know The Lord could handle everything I was going through and His love covered me too! Maybe you need to know that someone loves you! God cares about your life your health your mind and everything else that pertains to you. You are not alone ! He goes before you, behind you and walks beside you!
