I received this email today and I thought it was a beautiful message.
I tried to translate it... I hope you get the idea because it was really hard to translate...
In a warm day of summer in the south of Florida, a boy decided to go to swim in the lake behind his house. He left running by the back door, he threw himself into the water and he swam happily. He did not realized that a crocodile was approaching him.
His mother from the house watched from behind the window, and saw with horror what was going on. Immediately she ran towards his son shouting more hard than she could. The kid heard his mom and alarmed started swimming towards her, but he was too late.
From the wharf the mother took the boy by his arms right when the cayman took his little legs. The woman hauled with strenght, with all the force of her heart. The crocodile was stronger, but the mother was more enthusiastic and her love did not let her stop. A gentleman who heard the shouts hurried towards the place with a pistol and killed the crocodile.
The boy survived and, although his legs suffered a big damage, still he was able to walk. When he was out of the trauma, a journalist asked him if he wanted to show him the scars of his legs. The boy raised his blanket and he showed them. But then, with great pride he rolled up his sleeves and showing him the the scars in his arms said: "But these are the ones you must see". They were the marks of the nails of his mother that had pressed with force. "I have them because my mom did not let me go and saved my life"
We, some times also have the scars of a painful past. Some are caused by our sins, but some are the track of God that has held us with force so we do not fall in the claws of bad. God bless you always, and remember that if your soul has hurt you sometimes, it is because God graved you so hard and did not let you fall.
