About John G. Vasilake

One day, about 15 years ago, I had an encounter that really made me stop, for a moment, and ask myself; “Who keeps putting all these people, places and things in my life?” I could not come up with an answer right that moment so, I decided to grab a notepad and pen, and just start writing down some of the other amazing things that had happened during my almost 7 decades here on Earth. You will read about five of these Encounters in this, my first book. After jotting down some of the things I could remember at the time, I came up with what I truly believe, is the only possible answer. It was God! He was placing me in the right spot at just the right moment. Some of the encounters I had were to teach me a life lesson. Others were because someone else needed me in their life for one reason or another. Yet others were just to show me that God really loves and cares for us all! While traveling the world (I was born in Corvallis, Oregon in 1943), with my family, Dad was in the U.S. Army, and we got to spend two to three years in Japan, Panama, Kentucky, Connecticut, and finally Florida), Mom finally said, “That’s it! We need a place to settle down and call Home!” So, Mom and Dad agreed to buy a home in Pompano Beach, Florida, where we lived, until I got the travel bug and joined the Army. Go figure. My life has been one constant set of encounters. Some were good, others not so. If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it is that, looking back, God was always there. I now live in Virginia Beach, Virginia, right down the road from my sister Maryanne and her husband Ray. Life is good, and I wouldn’t change one moment of it.Ok, let me get on with writing about my Encounters. Bye for now. God bless, Johnnie V
