Monday Motivational: Sleep in the storm

 ” A man seeks employment on a farm. He hands his letter of recommendation to his new employer. It reads simply, “He sleeps in a storm.”

The owner is desperate for help, so he hires the man.

Several weeks pass, and suddenly, in the middle of the night, a powerful storm rips through the valley.

Awakened by the swirling rain and howling wind, the owner leaps out of bed. He calls for his new hired hand, but the man is sleeping soundly.

So he dashes to the barn, He sees, to his amazement, that the animals are secured with plenty of feed.

He runs out to the field. He sees the bales of wheat have been bound and wrapped in tarpaulins.

He races to the silo. The doors are latched, and the grain is dry.

 And he then understands. “He sleeps in a storm” “

This is an extract from Have a little faith: A true story by Mitch Albom.
