Cherokee Legend
Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youths' rite of Passage?

His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him an leaves him alone.
  He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it.  He cannot cry out for help to anyone. 
Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.

He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own.

The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him . Maybe even some human might do him harm.
The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man!

Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold.

It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him.
   

He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.

We, too, are never alone. Even when we don't know it, God is watching over
 us, sitting on the stump beside us.   

When trouble comes, all we have to do
  is reach out to Him. 

If you liked this story, pass it on.
If not, you took off your blindfold
  before dawn.

Moral of the story:
Just because you can't see God,
Doesn't mean He is not there.

"For we walk by faith, not by sight."
  
May your troubles be less,         
Your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness
coming through your door.

The place to be happy is here,
The time to be happy is now,
The way to be happy is to
Make others so.
