A Beautiful Parable

Thursday, January 13, 2011

This was given to me and I just had to share with you all.
I hope this works!

A beautiful Parable

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She didn't recognized them. She Said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungary. Please come in and have something to eat."
"Is the man of the house home?", they asked, "No", she replied. "he's out". "Then we cannot come in" he replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happend.
"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" The woman went out and invited the men in.
"We do not go into a house together," they replied.
"Why is that?", she asked.
One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home. "

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was over joyed. "How nice" he said. "Since that is the case let us invite wealth!"
His wife disagreed, "My dear why don't we invite Success?" Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: 'Would it not be better to invite LOVE? Our Home would be filled with LOVE!"

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to the wife.
"Go out and invite LOVE to be our guest"
The woman went out and ask the 3 old men, "Which one of you is LOVE? PLease come in and be our guest".
LOVE got up and started walking towards the house. The other two got up and started to follow him. Surprise, the lady asked Wealth and Success:
I only invited LOVE why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed out, but since you invited love, wherever he goes, we go with him.
Wherever there is Love there is Wealth and Success!!!!

*Where there is Pain, I wish you Peace and Mercy.
*Where there is self doubting, I wish you Renewed Self Confidence in your ability to work through it.
*Where there is Tiredness, or Exhaustion, I wish you Understanding, Patience and Renewed Strength.
*Where there is Fear, I wish you Love and Courage!

    I really did enjoy this parable. I'm glad that I had a chance to visit your Spark page and read your incredible story. I think I am interested in learning a bit more about natural health too. My doctor recently prescribed what I felt were extreme measure to treat my heartburn and IBS. I am a bit leery of herbs, but I will come and join you Spark Team for a while, and take a look around.

    Hi EJ,

Touched my heart. It's wonderful. It's the morale booster I was looking for today, the peace that says 'yes, all is well.' Had never come across this before, so it goes to show that sharing creates some new and wonderful experience every time you just let it flow.

Thank you, Droplet. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This is emoticon I remember getting it from a friend I think last year but forgot what the answer was but I have always wanted love in my family. I know it here but I just have to be careful not to talk and that is a hard way to live. emoticon

    As soon as I heard the three name I said I choose LOVE. For that is all I ever wanted in life. Growning up wasn't a life any one would want. I was skinny but considered the healthest one of the 8 my mother had. So I was the cook, house cleaner, washed everyone clothes and ironed dryers...all this I never complained for I knew some day I would be able to take care of my own place. It was that I felt I wasn't loved only the other seven. I had to take their spanking and if I fell while being spanked I got kicked. I wanted to find where Roy Rogers lived for he took other boys and girls in. Going out and sitting on the big rock out in the back I was asking God please help me got live with R.R. Well of course I never got there. When 18 tried to pack my car trunk with my clothes and leave. Mother caught me. Won't say what happened. But she did leave for the store and I got into my car and left. I had a job outside the home at the time.
I don't ask for anything back for what I do for others. I just want everyone to be happy and treat each other with love.
This was beautiful.

Thank you, Diana (4DJSHEART49) for sharing this with me! McKenzie and I truly did dance and sing in our rain today. 57* with light rain late this afternoon as we were on our way to her dance classes. AWESOME!! Melted most of our snow as the sun was shining most of the day although we started the day with an ice storm. Praise God for He is wonderful!!!
Blessings and hugs,
