Below is a re-posting of an anecdotal story from Red Elk, an Inter-Tribal Medicine Man. I found it to be touching and truthful. Enjoy!
Folks, as most know by now, I see through “different eyes.”
On my way home a few minutes ago, with my youngest grandson, he suddenly exclaimed “WOW! Look at THAT!”
He was pointing towards a field of Sunlit ground…while all around it, except that area, was covered in “shadowy” overcast… MILES of it!
I said: “He smiles in the darkness.”
“What do you mean grandpa?”
“Son, it is as if He has given light in a world of sadness and despair. All the shadow area, to me, is like the world all about us. Only a few see the Smiling Light of His Greatness and Love. That small patch of sunlight is like His wonderous Smile in this dark world. That is what I “see.” Do you understand?”
He thought, then quietly replied …..”Yes, grandpa, I do.”
Friends, this sharing is for you…to instantly COMPARE God’s WORD with All the “events” about you. Do YOU understand?
ho, Red Elk
