ANYPLACE ON THE FORUMS FOR STORIES LIKE THIS ONE?

Post by karma on Thu 05 Feb 2009, 6:10 pm

The Window Through Which We Look

A young couple moved into a new neighbourhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbour hanging the wash outside. 'That laundry is not very clean', she said. 'She doesn't know how to wash correctly. perhaps she needs better laundry soap.' Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbour would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: 'Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this?' The husband said, 'I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.' And so it is with life. What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look

The Dark Candle
A man had a little daughter - an only and much - beloved child.
He lived
for her - she was his life. So when she became ill and her
illness
resisted the efforts of the best obtainable physicians, he
became like a
man possessed, moving heaven and earth to bring about her
restoration to
health.
His best efforts proved unavailing and the child died. The
father was
totally irreconcilable. He became a bitter recluse, shutting
himself away
from his many friends and refusing every activity that might
restore his
poise and bring him back to his normal self.
But one night he had a dream. He was in Heaven, and was
witnessing a
grand pageant of all the little child angels. They were
marching in an
apparently endless line past the Great White Throne. Every
white - robed
angelic tot carried a candle. He noticed that one child's
candle was not
lighted. Then he saw that the child with the dark candle was
his own
little girl. Rushing to her, while the pageant faltered, he
seized her in
his arms, caressed her tenderly, and then asked: "How is
it, darling,
that your candle alone is unlighted?"
"Father, they often re-light it, but your tears always put it
out."
Just then he awoke from his dream. The lesson was crystal
clear, and its
effects were immediate. From that hour on he was not a
recluse, but
mingled freely and cheerfully with his former friends and
associates. No
longer would his little darling's candle be extinguished by his
useless
tears!
