Four candles slowly burned.
The ambiance was soft, one could almost hear them talking….
The First candle said:
“I am Peace!”
The world is full of anger and fighting
Nobody can keep me lit!.
Then the flame of Peace went out completly.
“The Second candle said
“I am Faith”
“I am no longer indispensable.
It doesn’t make sense that I stay lit another moment.”
Just then a breeze softly blew Faiths flame.
Sadly the Third candle began to speak.
“I am Love.”
People don’t understand my importance so they simply put me aside.
They even forgot to Love those who are nearest to them!.
And waiting no longer Loves flame went out.
A child enters the room and saw the Three unlit candles.
“Why aren’t you burning?
Your supposed to stay lit till the end.”
Saying this, the child began to cry.
Then the Fourth candle answered
“Don’t be Afraid,
“I am Hope!”
While I am still burning we can re-light the other candles”
With shining eyes the child took the candle of Hope and lit the other candles.
The Greatest of These is Love…
…But the flame of Hope should never go out in your life!
We hope each of us can live with Peace ,Faith and Love
