28-A Blind Girl

Once there was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend, because he was always there for her. Once she told her boyfriend, "If I could only see the world, I would marry you."

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, "Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?"

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them for the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boy friend got very sad, so she too. She loved him very much.

Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: "Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine."

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and only a very few remember who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

Today before you say an unkind word,
Think of someone who can't speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food,
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife,
Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.
Today before you complain about life,
Think of someone who went to heaven too young.

Before you complain about your children,
Think of someone who desire children but are barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house,
Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive,
Think of someone who walks the same distance.
And when you are tired and start to complain about your job,
Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

And before you think of judging another,
Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all will have to answer to one GOD.
So when depressing thoughts seem to get you down,
Put a smile on your face and thank GOD for all he has given you.

God's love is unconditional
