Inspiration/Religious jokes: Your Mother is always with you

 

MOTHER

This is a truly BEAUTIFUL piece. Please read this at a slow pace, digesting every word and in leisure…do not hurry….this is a treasure…

For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom, this is beautiful. For those of us who aren’t, this is even more beautiful.

For those who are moms, you’ll love this

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. “Is this the long way?” she asked. And the guide said: “Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it.. But the end will be better than the beginning.”

But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, “Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.”

Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, “Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come.”

And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children,” A little patience and we are there.”

So the children climbed, and when they reached the top they said, “Mother, we would not have done it without you.”

And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up at the stars and said, “This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I ‘ve given them strength.”

And the next day came strange clouds which darkened the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped and stumbled, and the mother said: “Look up. Lift your eyes to the light.

” And the children looked and saw above the clouds an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness And that night the Mother said, “This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God.”

And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide.

And mother said, “I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them.”

And the children said, “You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates.” And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: “We cannot see her but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence…….”

Your Mother is always with you…. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; she’s the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks; she’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not well. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she’s crystallized in every tear drop.

She’s the place you came from, your first home; and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you.

Not time, not space… not even death!

PASS THIS ON TO ALL THE MOTHERS & CHILDREN YOU KNOW.

MAY WE NEVER TAKE OUR MOTHERS FOR GRANTED..

Pass it on to the men…because they have mothers, too.

KING’S 4-WIVES(An email forward)

 

Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives. He loved the 4th
wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest
of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the
best.
He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to
neighbouring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him
for another.
He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant and was always kind,
considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he
could confide in her, and she would help him
get through the difficult times.
The King’s 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great
contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not
love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of
her!
One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his
luxurious life and wondered, I now have four wives with me, but when I die,
I’ll be all alone.”
Thus, he asked the 4th wife, “I have loved you the most, endowed you with
the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying,
will you follow me and keep me company?”
“No way!”, replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word.
Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.
The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, “I have loved you all my life. Now
that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?”
“No!”, replied the 3rd wife. “Life is too good! When you die, I’m going to
remarry!” His heart sank and turned cold.
He then asked the 2nd wife, “I have always turned to you for help and you’ve
always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me
company?”
“I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!”, replied the 2nd wife. “At the
very most, I can only walk with you to your grave.” Her answer struck him
like a bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated.
Then a voice called out: “I’ll go with you. I’ll follow you no matter where
you go.” The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very
skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect.
Greatly grieved, the King said, “I should have taken much better care of you
when I had the chance!”
In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:
Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in
making it look good, it will leave us when we die.
Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all
go to others.
Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been
there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.
And our 1st wife is our Soul – often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power
and pleasures of the world. However, our Soul is the only thing that will
follow us wherever we go. Cultivate, strengthen
and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to the
throne of God and continue with us throughout Eternity.
Thought for the day: Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees,
you’re in the perfect position to pray.

Comment
I know that the king’s story is an analogy, but he should have been referred
to:
(Mark 10:23-31; Luke 18:24-30)
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you with certainty, it will be
hard for a rich person to get into the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you,
it is easier for a camel to squeeze through the eye of a needle than for a
rich person to get into the kingdom of God.”19
When the disciples heard this, they were completely astonished and said,
“Who, then, can be saved?”
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “For humans this is impossible, but
for God all things are possible.” 
Then Peter said to him, “See, we have left everything and followed you. So
what will we get?” 
Jesus said to them, “I tell you with certainty, when the Son of Man sits on
his glorious throne in the renewed creation, you who have followed me will
also sit on twelve thrones, governing the twelve tribes of Israel. In fact,
everyone who has left his homes, brothers, sisters, father, mother,
children, or fields because of my name will receive a hundred times as much
and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the
last will be first.” 
Obviously, the king had not read the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth
(BIBLE) and I welcome comment from those more enlightened in this matter.
