A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For many months he
had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing
his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his
father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his
graduation his father called him into his private study. His father
told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how
much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.
Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and
found a lovely, leather-bound Bible. Angrily, he raised his voice at
his father and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible?" and
stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book.
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in
business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his
father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had
not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make
arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed
away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come
home immediately and take care things. When he arrived at his father's
house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search
his father's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he
had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to
turn the pages. As he read those words, a car key dropped from an
taped behind the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same
dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date
of his graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL.
How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not
packaged as we expected?
A lovely lesson for life!!!!

field and choose the biggest paddy and come back.
But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back

but he wonders....may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw

Trees That Wood
Trees That Wood
Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were
discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, "Someday I
hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and
precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and
everyone would see the beauty."
Then the second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will
take kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the
world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my
Finally the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and
straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill
and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how
close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time
and people will always remember me."
After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a
group of woodsmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree
he said, "This looks like a strong tree, I think I should be able to
sell the wood to a carpenter" ... and he began cutting it down. The
tree was happy, because he knew that the carpenter would make him into
a treasure chest.
At the second tree a woodsman said, "This looks like a strong tree, I
should be able to sell it to the shipyard." The second tree was happy
because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship.
When the woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frightened
because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not come
true. One of the woodsmen said, "I don't need anything special from my
tree so I'll take this one", and he cut it down.
When the first tree arrived at the carpenters, he was made into a feed
box for animals. He was then placed in a barn and filled with hay.
This was not at all what he had prayed for. The second tree was cut
and made into a small fishing boat. His dreams of being a mighty ship
and carrying kings had come to an end. The third tree was cut into
large pieces and left alone in the dark. The years went by, and the
trees forgot about their dreams.
Then one day, a man and woman came to the barn. She gave birth and
they placed the baby in the hay in the feed box that was made from the
first tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the
baby, but this manger would have to do. The tree could feel the
importance of this event and knew that it had held the greatest
treasure of all time. Years later, a group of men got in the fishing
boat made from the second tree. One of them was tired and went to
sleep. While they were out on the water, a great storm arose and the
tree didn't think it was strong enough to keep the men safe. The men
woke the sleeping man, and he stood and said "Peace" and the storm
stopped. At this time, the tree knew that it had carried the King of
Kings in its boat.
Finally, someone came and got the third tree. It was carried through
the streets as the people mocked the man who was carrying it. When
they came to a stop, the man was nailed to the tree and raised in the
air to die at the top of a hill. When Sunday came, the tree came to
realize that it was strong enough to stand at the top of the hill and
be as close to God as was possible, because Jesus had been crucified
The moral of this story is that when things don't seem to be going
your way, always know that God has a plan for you. If you place your
trust in Him, He will give you great gifts. Each of the trees got what
they wanted, just not in the way they had imagined. We don't always
know what God's plans are for us. We just know that His ways are not
our ways, but His ways are always best.
A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a Rupee 500
note. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this Rupee 500
Hands starte d going up. He said, "I am going to give this note to one
of you but first let me do this.". He proceeded to crumple the note
up. He then asked, "Who still wants it?".
Still the hands were up in the air."Well," he replied, "What if I do this?".
And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor
with his shoe.
He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty.
"Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.
"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did
not decrease in value. It was still worth Rupee 500/-.
Many times in your lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into
the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our
We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or
what will happen, you will never lose your value.
You are special don't ever forget it! Never let yesterday's
disappointments overshadow tomorrow's dreams.
A woman awoke during the night to find that her husband was not in
bed.She went downstairs looking for him. He was sitting at the kitchen
table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appeared to be in deep
thought, just staring at the wall. She saw tears rolling from his eyes
as he sipped his coffee.
"What's the matter with you, my dear? Why are you down here at this
time of the night?" she asked.
"Do you remember twenty years ago when we were dating and you were
only 16?" he asked.
"Yes, I do," she replied.
"Do you remember when your father caught us while dating?"
"Yes, I do remember," she replied.
"Do you remember when he shoved that shotgun in my face and said,
"Either you marry my daughter or spend twenty years in jail?"
"Yes, I do," she said, getting a little teary- eyed herself at his
He wiped another tear from his cheek and said, "You know... I would
have been released today."
