介绍:
《When the Wind Blows》 Years ago a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast. He advertised for hired hands. A short man approached the farmer. "Are you a good farmhand? "the farmer asked him. "Well, I can sleep when the wind blows. " answered the little man. Although puzzled by this answer, the farmer, desperate for help,hired him. The little man worked well around the farm, busy from dawn to dusk, and the farmer felt satisfied with the man's work. Then one night the he wind howled loudly in from offshore. Jumping out of bed, the farmer rushed next door to the hired hands sleeping quarters. He shook the little man and yelled, "Get up! A storm is coming! Tie things down before they blow away! The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly "No sir. I told you can sleep when the wind blows. The farmer was tempted to fire him on the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the storm. To his amazement, he discovered that everything had been tied down. Nothing could blow away. The farmer then understood what his hired hand meant, so he returned to his bed to also sleep while the wind blew When you're prepared, spiritually, mentally, and physically, you have nothing to fear. Can you sleep when the wind blows through your life? 几年前,一个农场主在大西洋沿岸拥有一块土地,他贴广告雇佣生人手。一个个头不高的男人来到农场主面前。“你是个干农活的好手 农场主问他。 “是的,起风的时候我可以睡觉,”那个矮个男人回答道。 尽管农场主对他的回答有点迷惑,可苦于没有帮手,最终还是雇佣了他。那个矮个男人在农场干活很卖力,从天亮一直忙到天黑,因此农场主对他的工作很满意。 一天晚上,海面上刮起了咆哮的大风。农场主从床上跳了起来冲到隔壁雇工住的地方。他晃着那个矮个男人喊道:“起来!刮风暴了!快把东西系好,别刮跑了!” 那个矮个男人在床上翻了一下身,平静地说道:“不,先生,我告诉过你,刮风的时候我可以睡觉。” 农场主被气得真想当场把他解雇。不过,他还是赶紧跑出去应付暴风雨了。然而,令他惊奇的是,他发现一切都已经拴牢了,什么东西也不会刮走。此刻,农场主才明白了雇工那句话的意思,于是,风刮起来的时候,他也回自己的床上睡觉了。 当精神上、心理上和物质上都做好准备的时候,一切就无所畏惧了。 当你的生活刮起风暴的时候,你是否能睡着觉呢?
