Paper Cranes

Another Story from my Email

There was once this guy who is very much in love with his girl.

This romantic guy folded 1,000 pieces of paper cranes as a gift to his girl.

His future didn’t seem too bright, they were very happy together.  Until one day, his girl told him she was going to Paris and will never come back. She also told him that she cannot visualize any future for the both of them, so they went their own ways there and then…

Heartbroken, the guy agreed. But when he regained his confidence, he worked hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to make something out of himself.

Finally with all the hard work and the help of friends, this guy had set up his own company …You never fail until you stop trying. One rainy day, while this guy was driving, he saw an elderly couple sharing an umbrella in the rain walking to some destination. Even with the umbrella, they were still drenched. It didn’t take him long to realize They were his girl’s parents.

 

 With a heart in getting back at them, he drove slowly beside the couple, wanting them to spot him in his luxury sedan. He wanted them to know that he wasn’t the same any more; he had his own company, car, condo, etc…He made it!

 What he saw next confused him, the couple was walking towards a cemetery, and so he got out of his car and followed…

 and he saw his girl, a photograph of her smiling sweetly as ever at him from her tombstone and he saw his paper cranes right beside her…

 Her parents saw him. He asked them why this had happened. They explained, she did not leave for France at all.

She was ill with cancer. She had believed that he will make it someday, but she did not want to be his obstacle… therefore she had chosen to leave him.

 Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.  She had wanted her parents to put his paper cranes beside her, because, if the day comes when fate brings him to her again… he can take some of those back with him…  

flowers5Once you have loved, you will always love. For what’s in your mind may escape but what’s in your heart will remain forever. The guy just wept… The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside her knowing you can’t have her, see her or be with her ever again……… hope you understand.

 Find time to realize that there is one person who means so much to you, for you might wake up one morning losing that person who you thought meant nothing to you.

  Wake Up!

Decide to have a good day.

“Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalms 118:24

Dress Up!

The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is

an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart.”

1 Samuel 16:7

Shut Up!

Say nice things and learn to listen.

God gave us two ears and one mouth so He must have

meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.

“He who guards his lips guards his soul.” Proverbs 13:3

“Gossip betrays confidence; avoid men who talk too much.” Proverbs 20:19

“Listen to advice, accept instruction and in the end, you will be wise.”

Stand Up!

Stand up for what you believe in.  As the saying goes,

stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.

we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good . . .”

Galatians 6:9-10

          Look Up!

Look up to the Lord.

“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

Philippians 4:13

Reach Up!

Reach up for something higher.

Always try to better today than you were yesterday.

“And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye

when you have a log in your own?”
Matthew 7:3

Lift Up!

Lift up your prayers.

“Do not worry about anything; instead pray about everything.”

Philippians 4:6

Hope these “7-Ups” lift your day!

Be sure to pass them on.

“When you bow down before the Lord and admit your dependence on Him,

He will lift you up and make your life significant!”
James 4:10

THAT’S GOD!

Have you ever been just sitting there and all of a sudden,

you feel like doing something nice for someone you care for?

THAT’S GOD!
He talks to you through the Holy Spirit.

Have you ever been down and out and nobody seems

to be around for you to talk to?

THAT’S GOD!
He wants you to talk to Him.

Have you ever been thinking about someone that you

haven’t seen in a long time and then, the next thing

you know, you see them or receive a phone call from them?

THAT’S GOD!
There is no such thing as “coincidence.”


holy spirit dove photo: Dove- Holy Spirit dove.jpg

Have you ever received something wonderful that you didn’t

even ask for, like money in the mail, a debt that had mysteriously

been cleared, or a coupon to a department store where you had

just seen something you wanted but couldn’t afford?

THAT’S GOD!
He knows the desires of your heart.


holy spirit dove photo: Dove- Holy Spirit dove.jpg

Have you ever been in a situation and you had no clue

how it is going to get better, but now you look back on it?

THAT’S GOD!
He passes us through tribulation to see a brighter day.

holy spirit dove photo: Dove- Holy Spirit dove.jpg
 

In all we do, if we remember to give total thanks to God,

our blessings will continue to be multiplied…

And I count you among my greatest blessings!

Thinking of you and hope it brightens your day!

And I will send showers, showers of blessings,
which will come just when they are needed.
Ezekiel 34:26 (NLT)

Hello, God. . .Please answer my call

Hello, God. . .


Hello, God. I called tonight
To talk a little while…
I need a friend who’ll listen
To my anxiety and trial.

You see, I can’t quite make it
Through a day just on my own.
I need your love to guide me,
So I’ll never feel alone.

I want to ask you please to keep
My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they’re bound.

Give me faith, Dear God, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can’t change in any way.

I thank you, God, for being home
And listening to my call;
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.

Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.

So thank-you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good-night, God.  I love You, too.
And I’ll call again tomorrow!

Kindness Pays

I received this in my email and thought of sharing it here for inspiration.

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

boy with milk

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.

 He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied . “Mother has taught us never to accept payment for a kindness.”  He said… “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

 Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled.  They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard

Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life.
Kelly was called in for the consultation. When e heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

From that day he gave special attention to the case. After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.  He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.

She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught ; her attention on the side as She read these words…

“Paid in full with one glass of milk.”  (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed:  “Thank You, GOD, that Your love has spread abroad  through human hearts and hands.”

 

The story may be true or not –  But it is nice to feel kindness…It somehow deepen your faith and thank God for people Like Dr. Kelly.
