Today’s challenge was really challenging. I start off the day and within an hour of being in the office my phone goes blank- absolutely dead. Nothing happens…no matter what I do and I think (not very appropriately) how will I do today’s challenge!….I keep trying all day to reboot it periodically and by the time, I get home my phone has shown not a flicker of life, so naturally I am terribly upset. I get in and talk to my family…we bicker in our usual way and I laugh along with them, for the first time today, forgetting my phone sorrows…almost subconsciously, I keep pressing the reset buttons on my phone, hoping that it will finally come on….and imagine by joy when the phone miraculously lights up after being dead for almost 9hrs!
Four candles burned slowly…the first candle said:- “I Am Peace, but these days, nobody wants to keep me lit.” Then Peace’s flame slowly diminished and went out completely. The second candle said, “I Am Faith, but these days, I am no longer indispensable.” Then Faith’s flame slowly diminished and went out completely. 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.” And Love went out completely. Then the Fourth Candle said: “Don’t be afraid, for I Am Hope, and while I still burn, we can re-light the other candles.”
Never give up hope ~ Be the candle that lights the World.
