Air Commodore James was a Jet Pilot, In a combating mission his fighter plane was destroyed by a missile. He, however, ejected himself & parachuted safely. He won acclaims & appreciation from many.
After five (5) years, one day he was sitting with his wife in a restaurant. A man from another table came and said. “You are Captain James ! You flew Jet fighters, you were shot down”
“How in the world did you know that?” asked James .
“I packed your parachute before you flew,” the man smiled and replied” Asiedu gasped in suprise and gratitude and thought, ” If the parachute hadn’t worked, I wouldn’t be here today”
James could’nt sleep that night, thinking about that man, he wondered how many times he might have seen him and not even said, “Goodmorning, how are you?” or anything because he was a fighter pilot and that person was just a safety worker.
So Brethren, “Who is packing your parachute?” Everyone has someone who provides what they need to make it through the day, weeks and months.
We need many kinds of parachutes when our plane is shot down- we need the physical parachute, the mental parachute, the emotional parachute, the spiritual parachute and the financial parachute. We call on all these supports before reaching safety.
Sometimes in the daily challenges that life gives us, we miss what is really important.
As you go through the last few days of this year, recognize the people who packed your parachute.
I just want to THANK EVERYONE who packed my parachute this 2020, one way or the other – through your words, deeds and prayers. You are highly appreciated. Your kindness and thoughtfulness was invaluable.
If you happen to read this, please read this as a personal message to you- THANK YOU VERY MUCH. …….BE BLESSED INDEED.
Wish you all a very blessed and blissful period …
CAN’T WAIT TO SHAKE YOUR HANDS IN 2021.
