If you have ever come across Frank Edwards, you will know he does not smile a lot but he however promises a heart full of love. Frank said smile is not a prove of true happiness.
In a post on his Instagram account, Frank Edwards recounts a past event, something somewhat of a trial at the period in time but has now become a blessing. Frank spoke of working in a big farm owned by a relative and having to work the big farm alone. He said he did not understand why he had to work the big farm alone at the time since he was certain the relative didn’t hate him. Read below:
“In my young life… I have been through a lot & trust me not in a bad way as I have come to understand it was all training.
But then I have been loved, betrayed , offended & I offended people too & never said sorry because I didn’t know they got offended. But through it all I learnt that “kiss is not a true sign of love” & “smile is not a true sign of happiness” even words are not dependable enough to show honesty & sincerity.
I don’t smile a lot but the love in my heart is stronger than what you see on my face. Judas proved it that you can kiss to kill.
I give, I accommodate, I tolerate because I have been given, I have been accommodated & I have been tolerated. I am a product of what I have been through, I am a product of GRACE. But let me tell you a little story just to encourage someone.
I once lived with an Anglican church priest who was a husband to my dads elder sister ..
He had a large farm land just behind the church building, because he was always busy with the church I was the only one left to work at the farm land, I was only 11 years old. I thought he hated me by sending me to the farm every time until one day he said to me:
‘I know the farm land is Big for you alone but so shall your blessings be..’
But I didn’t understand because I felt I needed help with the farm, but I knew he loved me because every night before he goes to bed he told me one story. Some interesting & so many boring … but in 1 of his stories he said ‘until you can handle big responsibilities you are not a man yet.’
To cut the story short after six months my mum needed my attention to assist her with selling. But he wouldn’t let me go because we were already too close, then I told my mum how about I do both, sell for you two weeks, work at the farm two weeks? We all agreed. So I was their star child. They loved me but they had nothing to give except the love in their hearts and I understood.
Ehmmmm I’m all tears now. I will continue this story later. God bless”.
