David Brinkley was so right when he said, 'A succesful man is someone who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him'. Friends I can tell you that you can soar above that adverse situation beacause as a wise man said, 'Sinking beneath a problem or rising above it is simply about attitude'. Charles Darrow was an out of work engineer during The Depression who was dead broke and to make matters worse he had a wife to care for. This situation made him cry his eyes out till there were no more tears in his eyes, after this he and his wife played a game in which they bought properties, put money in the bank. They played this game over and over again and guess what, the game of MONOPOLY came into being.
Catherine Marshall had just lost her husband, Peter and I could feel the pain, the anguish, the loneliness but rather than let this wind of adversity blow her around, she wrote a book titled, 'A Man Called Peter' which was a bestseller and also a Hollywood classic as it was made into a movie. Not only was she rewarded financially she became a source of inspiration to women who had lost their husbands. Rather than see the glass as half empty see it as half full because the only way out of a difficulty is through it.
The final story is my story of how I turned pain into passion, how I soared on the winds of adversity. I had just lost two people in two weeks and I had to bear the grief of them being buried on the same day, I felt sad at the loss of these two but instead of being bitter I decided to be better. To God's glory I have completed a poetry book in their honour, not stopping at that I am writing the biography version of the poetry book 'MEMORIES' which I titled also 'MEMORIES THIS IS OUR STORY'. Friends in that situation you can come out on top if you refuse to be defeated. So go on an soar on the winds of adverstity.
