Everything Happens for a Reason

If you're an avid reader of my blog, then you'll know I'm a religious person. While this story isn't about "God" per se, I kind of got chills just from reading it, as it seems to me God's hand was leading this man on to make an incredible legacy, the kind we only see in movies. Seriously, this man's story would make a gripping book or a tear-jerking movie.

A WWII pilot was shot out of the sky over the island of New Britain, Papua New Guinea, fell into the jungle, and from there, a story of faith and hope was born.

Now, I'm a firm believer that there is no such thing as "coincedence". Everything has a reason for being. While at the time, this pilot may not have known the reason for being lost in the jungle, starving and sick, but hindsight is 20/20. Now, decades later, we see the "reason".

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
~~1 Corinthians 13:13

Read the four-page article to the very end. You'll be glad you did.

It's just such a touching story.
