Only One Thing Matters

If you are experiencing hard times as I  currently do ( the demise of a loved one),  you may find relief reading this short story offered by the "Inspirational Peak" site you may visit here:
But in case you are in a hurry, I'm pleased to cut it short for you by re-posting the story as follows:

"That Is Enough"
 Unknown Author

A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side."

Very quietly, the doctor said, "I don't know."

"You don't know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?"

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room with his tail wagging and an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside... He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing. I know my Master is there and that is enough."

Sharing For An Auspicious Day

On this auspicious Day,  - 7th of August : Ivory Coast National day - it's my pleasure to share with all friends and readers a short story from Barbara Hug entitled "The Given Light".

This inspiring tale emphasizes the sense of sharing and solidarity, two indispensable virtues in building a strong community and beyond a prosperous nation.

"The Given Light,
By Barbara Hug.

Once upon a time a man had heard, that in a foreign place, far away, there was a holy flame burning. So he got up and left his home to find the holy flame and bring some of its light back home to his house.

He thought: 'When I have this light, then I will have happiness and life and all the people I love will have it too.'

He travelled far, far away and finally found the holy flame, with which he lit his light. On his way back he had only one worry: 'That his light could go out.'

On his way home he met someone who was freezing and didn't have any fire and who begged him to give him some of his fire. The man with the light hesitated for a moment. Wasn't his light too precious, too holy to be given away for something ordinary like that?

Despite these doubts, he decided to give some of his light to the one who was freezing in the darkness.

The man continued his journey home and when he had almost reached his house a terrible thunderstorm started. He tried to protect his light from the rain and the storm, but at the end his light went out.

To return the long way back to the place where the holy flame was burning was impossible, he wouldn't have had enough strength to go back this far - but he was strong enough to return to the human being whom he had helped on his way home.

.........and with his light he could light his own again."

Warmest regards,
May Peace be on all Nations!
