Story of the Week

A Great Love
(Author Unknown )

        Once upon a time, There was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Vanity, Knowledge, Richness and Love. Theirs was a contented existence until one day to everyone's dismay it was discovered that the island was sinking. Everyone was told they must leave. So the feelings all prepared their boats and started leaving their beloved island. Love was the only one who stayed, behind. Love so cared for the island home that he wanted to stay until they were sure the island was really sinking. When Love realized that the island was finally sinking, he decided to ask for help.

        Richness was passing by Love in a beautiful boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?" Richness answered, "No, I can't. There are a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no room in here for you."
        Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by, "Vanity, please help me!"
        "I can't help you Love. You are all wet and will damage my boat," Vanity answered.
        Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, "Sadness, let me go with you." "Oh...Love, I am so sad that I can't help anyone. I prefer to go alone!"
        Happiness passed by Love too. She was too happy to notice when Love called her!
        Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elderly man.
Love became very happy that he even forgot to ask the name of the elder.
        When they arrived to safe grounds, Love asked Knowledge, “Who was the elderly man?
        "It was Time."
        "Time? But why did Time help me?"
        "Because only Time is capable of understanding such a great Love."

        Remember that when things may look the bleakest, and when all appears abandoned, Time is capable of solving anything. Things may not have a solution today, but tomorrow you may find one!

Dear God,        
        Help me to remember always that Love is the answer to all of the most difficult problems.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
