This is a motivational story, which had been contributed by an associate in my company's internal portal and I couldn't stop myself from sharing it here!
There were four candles. All were burning slowly. The ambiance was so soft you could hear them talking.
First one said “ I am PEACE! However nobody can keep me lit. I believe I will go out.”
The Second one said “ I am FAITH! Most of all I am no longer indispensable, so it doesn’t make any sense that I stay lit any longer.
The third one said “ I am LOVE! I haven’t got the strength to stay lit. People put me aside and don’t understand my importance. They even forget those who are nearest to them.”
Suddenly a child enters the room and sees three candles not burning. “ Why are you not burning..you were suppose to burn till the end”. Saying this child begins to cry.
Then the fourth candle said “ Don’t be afraid child. While I am burning we can RE-LIGHT the other candles.
The joyous child after re-lighting the other candles asked who are you?
The fourth candle answered “ I am HOPE!”
The flame of hope should never go out of our life and we can maintain Peace, Faith and Love !!!
