This is where we came from, but is not who we are".

Last Update: February 10, 2019

I heard about a wealth men took his son for a ride, about 45 minutes driving he stopped front a very old and careless house; the son asked his father "WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE?" The father answered with a calm voice, "YOU WILL SEE, JUST FOLLOW ME". The boy got out of the car and started following his father; inside the house, most of the things were broken, dirty, accumulated old things, some doors and windows also was broken, quite dark, at the point that you could say scared to get in, this was looking like an abandoned house. Right on the back of the house, sit on an old chair, was a man, an old man, with dirty cloths, long beard, skinny as bond. The boy asked his father if they could leave, and the father look at the old man, took money from his pack and say: "HI FATHER, HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY", he leaves the money on the top of one old desk and look to his son that's saying, "DAD, THIS IS MY GRAMPA? I DON'T RECOGNIZED HIM, I NEVER KNEW ABOUT HIM. I DO NOT WANT HIN TO BE PART OF MY LIFE". The father gently smiles at him and said: "SON, I BROUGHT YOU HERE, TO SHOW YOU THAT THIS IS WHERE WE CAME FROM, BUT IS NOT WHO WE ARE".

I do not think that this a real story, but I get the point that no matter where we come from, no matter how hard and ugly our pass it is, no matter the circumstances that brought us here at WA, we can change this. We can work very hard, follow our training, be persistent with our lessons, ask a question so we can proceed, be patient to wait the time to come until we can make some profits, help others to keep going as well.

If you are a newbie, please don't be afraid, don't be scared, do not think you can't do, because here at WA, is a community weary to help you anytime you need and want.

Here at WA, we are a fighter and we are walking towards our victory.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Indeed. Where we are now is not where we shall be 5 years from now. Let's stay focussed.

Our past does not define who we are. God has a plan for each of us we need to open our spiritual ears seek Him and listen

Hi Telma,
I enjoyed reading your blog. That's right where we came from in our past doesn't mean that it has to define who we are in our present.

I hope that makes sense. It's getting late where I live in Georgia (USA) So, if it doesn't, please forgive me!
Donna;)
