“LIFE”

May 20, 2008

THIS IS HOW WE MISS OUT SOMETHING CALLED “LIFE”

A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage. They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes. When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open. He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter. The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by its color and drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband. When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just five words.

QUESTIONS :
1. What were the five words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?

ANSWER :
The husband just said “I am with you Darling

The husband’s totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother.
Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened. No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world. ” A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.

MORAL OF THE STORY:

This story is really worth reading. ….. Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know.
By this way we miss out something called L.I.F.E.

The story of 4 Boyfriend

May 19, 2008

Once upon a time there was a girl who had four boyfriends.


She loved the fourth boyfriend the most and adorned him with rich robes and treated him to the finest of
delicacies. She gave him nothing but the best.


She also loved the third boyfriend very much and was always showing him off to neighboring kingdoms. However, she feared that one day he would leave her for another.


She also loved her second boyfriend. He was her confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with her. Whenever this girl faced a problem, she could confide in him, and he would help her get through the difficult
times.


The girl’s first boyfriend was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining her wealth and kingdom. However, she did not love the first boyfriend. Although he loved her deeply, she hardly took notice of him!



One day, the girl fell ill and she knew her time was short. She thought of her luxurious life and wondered,
‘I now have four boyfriends with me, but when I die, I’ll be all alone.’


Thus, she asked the fourth boyfriend, ‘I loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?’



‘No way!’, replied the fourth boyfriend, and he walked away without another word.



His answer cut like a sharp knife right into her heart



The sad girl then asked the third boyfriend, ‘I loved you all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?’


‘No!’, replied the third boyfriend. ‘Life is too good! When you die, I’m going to marry someone else!’


Her heart sank and turned cold.


She then asked the second boyfriend, ‘I have always turned to you for help and you’ve always been there for me.  When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?’



‘I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!’, replied the second boyfriend. ‘At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave.’




His answer struck her like a bolt of lightning, and the girl was devastated.


Then a voice called out: ‘I’ll go with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.’


The girl looked up, and there was her first boyfriend. He was very skinny as he suffered from malnutrition and neglect.


Greatly grieved, the girl said, ‘I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!’


In truth, you have four boyfriends in your lives:



Your fourth boyfriend is your body. No matter how much time and effort you lavish in making it look good, it will leave you when you die.



Your third boyfriend is your possessions, status and wealth.When you die, it will all go to others.


Your second boyfriend is your family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for you, the furthest they can stay by you is up to the grave.



And your first boyfriend is your spirit. Often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world.


However, your spirit is the only thing that will follow you where ever you go. Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of you that will follow you to the throne of God and continue with you throughout Eternity
.


Thought for the day : Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you’re in the perfect position to pray



Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect.  It means you’ve decided to see

beyond the imperfections.
