Happiness in you

i often wonder what life is truly all about, if not for happiness. Living every moment in joy and happiness, not just by yourself but with your family,friends and people around you.

Recently, my team and I decided to put some smile in faces or others, we came across an African kid's photo posted on social media. He appeared homeless, sleeping in the street in the middle of the night, with a basket of edible items that are definitely for sale. 

With the help of the people following the story, we reach out and made contact, and in no time we were able to have conversation with the kid. His Story: "My parent could not afford my education, they gave me to a lady who promised to send me school. Its been three years living with this lady, and all I do is sell items on street. I have to make certain amount of sales otherwise, there would be no food for me to eat, that was why i rather sleep on street trying to sell"

We tried to reach out to this lady but she wasn't interested to speak to us. Our goals was to help not to point fingers. We decided to reach to the young kids parent, we flew him back to his home town, accompanied by a volunteer, only to find his mum seriously ill, and his little brother had passed away. We sent his mum to a better hospital for medical treatment, and we got the young kid to school.  Am happy to say his mum has recovered, the young boy is now in school, and we have committed to sponsor his Education to University. 

You should see the happiness, priceless.

Gains are not measured by how

Gains are not measured by how much we keep for ourselves but by how much we give away for the henefit of others.

Thank you for your selfless act and I hope that the young man who was helped will pass that generosity on to some one in need in the future.

Way back in the old seminary

Way back in the old seminary days while I was getting a double in philosophy. One day in the lounge a few of us and some professors debated in great and meaningful detail (from a self important, over a cup of hot tea, standpoint) the meaning of life. 

I won't bore you with the full discussion but it was awesome. It was a subject I reviewed again and again over the years. I finally found the answer a little over 15 years ago. 

You were made for one purpose. To 'walk with God'   -- now what that means is different for each of us. People will defiantly say 'whats that even mean' but deep in your heart they/you know what it means to you and that is all that matters. 

Thus we used to encourage each other by asking 'Hows your walk?'  …..  it sounds like you just had a great walk! Congrats and thanks for sharing and inspiring!
