At the right place at the right time
I read the story of a fisherman named Larry Shaw, who was testing an outboard propeller on a lake in Ohio a few years ago. There, in a cove, he spotted a gigantic muskellunge fish near the surface. Shaw motored toward it and unsuccessfully cast out his line several times before the fish disappeared.
A half hour later, Shaw returned to the cove where he had first spotted the big muskie. It was back! Shaw turned on the electric trolling motor and headed toward the beast. As he crept closer, the massive fish suddenly started swimming directly toward the boat. Shaw quickly put on a leather glove and plunged his arm into the water, grabbing the fish behind the gills. That old fish started thrashing and twisting, but he finally wrestled the monster into the boat. The muskie weighed in at over 53 pounds.
When asked about his prize fish, Shaw shrugged and said, “I was at the right place at the right time—and was fool enough to grab it.”
That’s the same attitude we should have in fishing for people. Being at the right place at the right time—and being “fool enough” to take a risk—to tell your story—to share the word of life.
Then step back and watch God work.

*THE SNAKE AND THE SAW*
A snake penetrated into a carpentry workshop. As it slipped, it passed over a saw and got slightly wounded. Suddenly, it turned and bit the saw, and biting the saw, the snake seriously got wounded in its mouth!
Then not understanding what was happening and thinking that the saw was attacking "him," _it decided to roll around the saw to suffocate it with all its body by squeezing it with all its strength, but it ended up being killed by the saw!!!_
Sometimes we react in anger to hurt those who have harmed us, but we realize later that after all *we are hurting ourselves.*
*_In life it is better sometimes to ignore situations, ignore people, ignore their behavior, their words._*
*Sometimes it is better not to react* so as not to suffer consequences that can sometimes be deadly or harmful.
*Do not let hate take over your life* because love is stronger than anything.
*Keep Smiling and Spread Happiness.....*
*LAWS OF NATURE*
.... The food we eat, has to be digested and then thrown out of body in 24 hours, else we will fall ill.
.... The water we drink, gets in our body and is thrown out in 4 hours, else we will fall ill.
.... The air we breathe, has to be thrown out in 1 minute, else we will die.
What about negative emotions like hatred, anger, jealousy, insecurity ... we hold in our body for days, months and years.
If these negative emotions are not thrown out regularly it props up into psycho-somatic diseases.
And prayers and meditation are safest ways to dissolve these emotions.
