# 0877 Peace and Blessings Every Day
Sleep through the storm

Sam Cooke looked up from under the tractor he was fixing to see
a middle-aged, well-built man standing there quietly waiting for
him. To Sam’s inquiry the man gave his name as Bill Jeffers –
his business, handyman.

He was inquiring about the “Handy Man Wanted” sign on Sam’s gate.
Sam needed a helper, but he wanted to be sure he got a good one,
so he asked the stranger, “What can you do?”
The reply, “I can sleep through a storm,” didn’t make sense and
sounded as though the man might be a little on the “cracked” side.

Repeated questions brought on the same answer, calm and direct,
“I can sleep through a storm.” Impatiently Sam Cooke expressed
his misgivings about hiring Jeffers by telling him that there was
another man applying for the job, and to come back next Saturday
to see if it was still open.

Saturday morning Jeffers was on hand early, inquiring about the
job which he knew wasn’t filled because the sign was still up
on the gate. The interview was the same as before; with “I can
sleep through a storm” Jeffers’ only answer. By this time, Sam
was desperate for a helper, so he hired the man on a trial basis.

In the weeks that followed, Sam was to find that Bill Jeffers
was the best worker he had ever seen. Whatever needed doing got
done, and well, and both men were pleased with the arrangement.

The farmer was willing to forget that his hired man talked a
little “peculiar” when asked what he could do.

Then one night came the storm. Lightning had been flickering
on the horizon when they went to bed, but when Sam awoke about
midnight; the storm was almost on them. He quickly pulled on his
clothes and went to the hired mans room to wake him up so that
together they could put the farm in shape for the storm, see
that the doors were closed, the tractor covered, the livestock
inside, and a number of other things.

Pound as he might on Bill’s door, there was no response, and
Sam angrily went rushing out to put the place in shape,
muttering about his stupidity in hiring a man you couldn’t waken
when you needed him most, resolving to fire him in the morning.

When Sam got to the barn, all the doors were already closed,
the tractor was indoors, the livestock were all bedded down;
everything was all set. As he slowly undressed after his
unnecessary trip around the farm in the rain, Sam Cooke at last
knew what his hired man had meant by “I can sleep through a storm.”

Jeffers did his works so well, so thoroughly that he did not
need to worry in the time of storm. He knew that everything was

If we live our lives the same way, the storm times will never
bother us, because we will be ready for them.
