一个英语温馨小故事

一个英语温馨小故事:
The mountains where I live are full of turning, twisting, narrow, curvy roads. I was driving down one of those roads last Spring. Days of on and off rain had made the ground muddy and hillsides mushy. As I rounded a curve I saw that the weakened soil had released a tree on the hill by the road. It was now laying on the asphalt blocking my lane. I hit the brakes and slowly drove around it. Then I stopped. I knew it was only a matter of time before someone driving faster than I was would crash into that tree.
我住的山里满是转弯、曲折、狭窄、弯曲的道路。去年春天我开车沿着那条路走。几天的雨天使地面泥泞和山坡模糊不清。当我圆圆一条曲线时,我看到虚弱的土壤在路边的山上释放了一棵树。它现在躺在沥青上挡住了我的车道。我踩刹车,慢慢地开车。然后我停了下来。我知道,有人开得比我快,撞上那棵树只是时间问题。

I got out of my car and tried to pull the tree into the ditch but it was much too big and heavy. I didn’t know what to do but God in His wisdom and humor had other plans. Thirty seconds later a white pickup truck appeared and pulled over. Out stepped a bearded young man. “You need a chainsaw?”, he asked. I said, “Yes!” and he pulled one out of the back of his truck. For the next few minutes he cut the tree into movable chunks while I carried them across the road and dumped them over the guardrail on the other side. “You never know when you will need a chainsaw.”, I joked while my new found friend smiled and put his saw back in the truck. I waved goodbye and watched him drive off before heading back to my own car.
我下了车,试图把树拉进沟里,但它太大了,太重了。我不知道该怎么办,但上帝在他的智慧和幽默有其他计划。三十秒后,一辆白色小货车出现并停了下来。走出一个留着胡子的年轻人, “你需要链锯吗? ” 他问。我说:”是的!接下来的几分钟里,他把树切成可移动的块,而我却把树抬过马路,把它们扔到另一边的护栏上。”你永远不知道你什么时候需要链锯。” 我开玩笑说, 而我新找到的朋友微笑着把他的锯子放回卡车里。我挥手道别,看着他开车离开,然后回到自己的车。

As I drove away I pondered how God had put us both in just the right spot at just the right time. I felt happy knowing that I was able to help prevent an accident and sent a joyful “Thank You!” to God as the rain finally stopped and the sun broke through the clouds.
当我开车离开时,我思考上帝是如何让我们都放在正确的位置上的。当我能够帮助预防事故时,我感到很高兴,并给上帝送去了一个快乐的”谢谢!

In this life you never know when you will need a chainsaw. You do know, however, when you will need a kind and loving heart. And that is each and every day. God is always seeking our help to make this world a better, safer, and more loving place. It is up to us to answer the call. Open your heart then. Be ready, willing, and able. Fill your life with a million acts of kindness. Fill your days with countless moments of love. Help God to help this world today, tomorrow, and forever!
在这样一生,你永远不知道什么时候你需要一个链锯。然而,你知道,当你需要一颗善良和慈爱的心。这就是每一天。上帝总是寻求我们的帮助,使这个世界成为一个更美好,更安全,更充满爱的地方。我们该接听电话。那就敞开心扉吧做好准备,愿意,有能力。用一百万种善举填满你的生活。用无数的爱时刻填满你的日子。帮助上帝帮助这个世界今天,明天,永远!
