LOVE, FAITH & TRUST
(by A. J. Cronin)
miraculous power of love, faith and trust rewards an individual with
optimism, hope and inspiration. These virtues exude an inner strength
and immense self-confidence.
My recent encounter with two small
orphaned boys, Nicola and Jocopo, reveled how their immense love for
their sister, Lucia sustained them through all hardships and gave them
power and courage to face all the challenges of life without indulging
in any self-pity. Their outward shabbiness was very deceptive but
beneath it was a vast reservoir of inner strength. The unparalleled
faith in their own selves made them deal with all the problems of life
without seeking anyone's help. They toiled hard and despite scarcity of
work managed to earn enough to pay the weekly hospital bills of their
sister's treatment who was suffering from tuberculosis.
positive attitude has taught me to face life with equanimity and
courage. It has shown me how the values of love, faith and trust, which
are the fountainhead of hope, help one overcome all the obstacles and
impediments of life with a wonderful sense of ease and comfort.
