Monica’s Motivational Moment: Not Impossible

Years after Hurricane Katrina, cheap Joe, drugstore along and his wife, is still rebuilding his house, weathering moments that could crush the resolve of the most upbeat person. Joe’s home and neighborhood proved no match for breached levees. A builder by profession, he was in the process of rebuilding when all of his tools and floors were stolen out of his house. But little by little, year after year, Joe looks beyond setbacks, unfairness and disappointments. His life may not return to what was, but he is filled with the promise of what is now possible.

Joe says he refuses to allow broken levees, delays, or even thousands of stolen dollars due to contractor fraud to drown his faith or genuine belief in the goodness of others. “I wouldn’t change a thing,” Joe proclaimed. “It’s hard, but not impossible with God.”
