Over the years
our family has experienced some very good times
and we've had some very tough times too.
It's been during the tough times
I've witnessed the world working
and I've learned to trust.
One particular day during a tough time
I had a phone call
that someone had died.
I needed to make several long-distance phone calls
to let other people know.
This was going to be expensive
because back then
we had to pay for every long-distance call we made.
It wasn't very long
before a friend happened to stopover.
Before I had a chance to mention to her
about all these long-distance calls I needed to make
"I stopped over
because I was given these prepaid phone cards today.
I came over to give these to you."
Wow, these phone cards were exactly what I needed!
this may seem like a little thing to most people
but on that day
it was a big thing for me.
It was during that time I learned the maxim
"They do not fear bad news;
they confidently trust life to care for them."
After this particular experience,
along with many others,
I have been learning
to confidently trust life to care for me.
