Drop a pebble in the water

Wednesday, 18th November 2015

 

Drop a pebble in the water:

just a splash, and it is gone;

But there's half-a-hundred ripples

Circling on and on and on,

Spreading, spreading from the center,

flowing on out to the sea.

And there is no way of telling

where the end is going to be.

Drop a pebble in the water:

in a minute you forget,

But there's little waves a-flowing,

and there's ripples circling yet,

And those little waves a-flowing

to a great big wave have grown;

You've disturbed a mighty river

just by dropping in a stone.

Drop an unkind word, or careless:

in a minute it is gone; 

But there's half-a-hundred ripples   

circling on and on and on.     

They keep spreading, spreading, spreading       

from the center as they go,         

And there is no way to stop them,            

once you've started them to flow.             

Drop an unkind word, or careless:

in a minute you forget;

But there's little waves a-flowing,

and there's ripples circling yet,

And perhaps in some sad heart

a mighty wave of tears you've stirred,

And disturbed a life was happy

ere you dropped that unkind word.

Drop a word of cheer and kindness:

just a flash and it is gone;

But there's half-a-hundred ripples

circling on and on and on,

Bearing hope and joy and comfort

on each splashing, dashing wave

Till you wouldn't believe the volume

of the one kind word you gave.

Drop a word of cheer and kindness:

in a minute you forget; 

But there's gladness still a-swelling,   

and there's joy circling yet,     

And you've rolled a wave of comfort       

whose sweet music can be heard          

Over miles and miles of water            

just by dropping one kind word.             

~By James W. Foley~

 

Perseverance

Wednesday, 11th November 2015

Colonel Sanders went to more than 1,000 places trying to sell his chicken recipe before he found an interested buyer. The fact that we can buy Kentucky Fried Chicken today attests to his perseverance. Thomas Edison tried almost 10,000 times before he succeeded in creating the electric light. If he had given up, you would be reading this in the dark!

The original business plan for what was to become Federal Express was given a failing grade on Fred Smith¹s college exam. And, in the early days, their employees would cash their pay cheques at retail stores, rather than banks. This meant it would take longer for the money to clear, thereby giving Fed Ex more time to cover their payroll.

Sylvester Stallone had been turned down a thousand times by agents and was down to his last $600 before he found a company that would produce Rocky. The rest is history! 

To truly succeed requires a total commitment to your goal. Too many people make the mistake of quitting just short of success. Keep going no matter what. If you really believe in what you are doing, give it all you’ve got and don’t give up.

 

The story of a tea cup ...

Friday, 6th November 2015

There was a couple who used to go to England to shop in the beautiful stores. They both liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups. This was their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. They said, "May we see that? We've never seen one quite so beautiful."

As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke. "You don't understand," it said. "I haven't always been a teacup. There was a time when I was red and I was clay. My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over and I yelled out, 'Let me alone', but he only smiled, 'Not yet.'"

"Then I was placed on a spinning wheel," the teacup said, "and suddenly I was spun around and around and around. 'Stop it! I'm getting dizzy!' I screamed. But the master only nodded and said, 'Not yet.'"

"Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat. I wondered why he wanted to burn me, and I yelled and knocked at the door. I could see him through the opening and I could read his lips as he shook his head, 'Not yet.'"

"Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool. 'There, that's better', I said. And he brushed and painted me all over. The fumes were horrible. I thought I would gag. 'Stop it, stop it!' I cried. He only nodded, 'Not yet.'"

"Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate. I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried. All the time I could see him through the opening nodding his head saying, 'Not yet.'"

Then I knew there wasn't any hope. I would never make it. I was ready to give up. But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf. One hour later he handed me a mirror and I couldn't believe it was me. 'It's beautiful. I'm beautiful.'"

"'I want you to remember, then,' he said, 'I know it hurts to be rolled and patted, but if I had left you alone, you would have dried up. I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel, but if I had stopped, you would have crumbled. I knew it hurt and was hot and disagreeable in the oven, but if I hadn't put you there, you would have cracked. I know the fumes were bad when I brushed and painted you all over, but if I hadn't done that, you never would have hardened; you would not have had any color in your life. And if I hadn't put you back in that second oven, you wouldn't survive for very long because the hardness would not have held. Now you are a finished product. You are what I had in mind when I first began with you.'"

MORAL:

God knows what He's doing (for all of us). He is the Potter, and we are His clay. He will mold us and make us, so that we may be made into a flawless piece of work to fulfill His good, pleasing, and perfect will.

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not tempt you beyond what you can bear; but with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.
