NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE

No mechanic can repair breaking news.

No matter how tall you are,you can never see tomorrow.

Whatever your weight,your steps can’t break the ground.

Even if you have millions of cars,you still have to walk to your bedroom.

Being the best swimmer doesn’t make you a fish.

The whitest man on earth still has a black shadow.

The strongest man on earth can never carry a mountain.

The smartest assassin on earth can never kill the devil.

No matter how smart a police is,he can never catch the air.

No matter who you are,you still and always will need God in your life and we need each other ( God’s creation ) to survive.Life’s too short,so make time to serve your Creator and love Humanity. Stay Humble and Stay Blessed.

Josbons.
