The Four Candles

[B]The Four Candles burned slowly. Their Ambiance was so soft you could hear them speak...[/B]

[B]The first candle said, "I Am Peace, but these days, nobody wants to keep me lit."[/B]

[B]Then Peace's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.[/B]

[B]The second candle says, "I Am Faith, but these days, I am no longer indispensable."[/B]

[B]Then Faith's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.[/B]

[B]Sadly the third candle spoke, "I Am Love and I haven't the strength to stay lit any longer." "People put me aside and don't understand my importance. They even forget to love those who are nearest to them."[/B]

[B]And waiting no longer, Love goes out completely.[/B]

[B]Suddenly...[/B]

[B]A child enters the room and sees the three candles no longer burning.[/B]

[B]The child begins to cry, "Why are you not burning?...

Love and Loss at Christmas

He was a man sometimes overlooked. That happens a lot to people in wheelchairs. For more than 30 years he battled with MS. A body that once loved to play basketball and, in its youth, engaged in competitive sports had fully rebelled. But the man inside the body was not bitter. He was a cheerful “old soul” – a man who simply wouldn’t or couldn’t be put down. His name was Randy.

I would see him primarily at church where he would sit in the back, in his wheelchair, each week, greeting those who walked by with big smiles and a hearty hello. Occasionally I would be called upon to teach a class and Randy was always there with an engaged mind and a willingness to participate. I loved hearing him speak up, if only because his perspective usually sharpened the point I was trying to make.


In good weather Randy would drain the batteries on his wheelchair, thrilling in the speed he could achieve as he raced up and down the street. I once asked him why he did that...

Blessings

Posted 12-11-2010 at 09:22 PM by caninemom3

A newly arrived soul in Heaven was met by St. Peter. The saint toured the soul around Heaven. Both of them walked side by side inside a large workroom filled with angels.

St. Peter stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the Receiving Section. Here, all the petitions to God said in prayer are received". The soul looked at the section, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets from all the people of the world.

They walked again until they reached the 2nd section, and St. Peter told the soul, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are packed and delivered to the persons who asked for them down on earth."

The soul saw how busy it was. There were so many angels working in that room, since so many blessing were being packed and delivered to Earth.

Finally at the farthest corner of the...

Lucky

Anyone who has pets will really like this. You'll like it even if you don't and may decide you need one.

Mary and her husband Jim had a dog, Lucky. Lucky was a real character. Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably someone would forget and something would come up missing.

Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's favorite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.

It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this disease...she was just sure it was fatal. She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders.

The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought...

A Christmas Story

Posted 12-08-2010 at 03:20 PM by caninemom3

I thought this was such a nice story. I hope everyone enjoys xo

[B]It was only five days before Christmas. The spirit of the season hadn't yet caught up with me, even though cars packed the parking lot of our Houston area Target Shopping Center. Inside the store, it was worse.[/B]

[B]Shopping carts and last minute shoppers jammed the aisles. Why did I [/B][B]come today? I wondered. My feet ached almost as much as my head. [/B][B]My [/B][B]list contained names of several people who claimed they wanted nothing, [/B]
[B]but I knew their feelings would be hurt if I didn't buy them something. [/B]

[B]Buying for someone who had everything and deploring the high cost of [/B][B]items, I considered gift-buying anything but fun.[/B]

[B]Hurriedly, I filled my shopping cart with last minute items and [/B][B]proceeded to the long checkout lines. I picked the shortest but it [/B][B]looked as if it would mean at least a 20 minute wait.[/B]...
