No Obstacle Too Great


I recently read a non-fiction book by Mino Pavlic, called “No Obstacle Too Great”.  This man has been to hell and back and came out of his trials blessed by God.  This book can be an inspiration to anyone who thinks they have problems to deal with.  We all start out on the same path at birth but then everyone goes their own way, so to speak.

Mino was born in Austria, to Yugoslavian parents after they had escaped the war in Croatia.  The family immigrated into Canada where he remains today.  After traveling to Australia and Yugoslavia, the family returned to Canada.  After their return, his world began to fall apart.  His mother left, Mino and his brothers and was only seen sporadically.  Mino’s life went out of control like a run away train.  The next twenty-five years he lived the life of a criminal.  He became addicted to IV drugs, alcohol.  He spent many years in prison for one crime or another.

On top of everything else he dealt with, he was diagnosed with HIV and he knew it was a death sentence.   He said he was saved by a miracle: an exceptional and special woman.  Through her kindness, compassion, and tenderness, he has held onto his goals and inspirations.

I know more of his story, but he has not released it yet, but God has touched this man in a very special way.  He is living a healthy life, without a sign of active HIV.  He is also doing public speaking as a result of his memoirs.

If you want some inspiration in your life, read this book.  You won’t regret it.  That’s my two cents for today.

I'm a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I liked adventure and travel and making friends. I have 6 dogs and 1 cat. They are like having a house full of three years olds. Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. My Granddaughter has now added beautiful, Olivia to our household. My fourth Great Grandchild. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.
