I thought I’d end September off with a little story, this isn’t just any story – it just happens to be one of my favorite ones. In speaking with a good friend last week, I shared this story with them and thought “Hey!, why don’t I post this” and here it is. Just a little background on me, because I don’t just want to slap a story in your face that’s seemingly coming out of the blue…HA!!
However, I’m not the most outspoken person; but when I got a love for something, sometimes I just can’t help myself. I have always loved news, stories, quotes and just random acts of kindness and thoughts of others in which I try to share with you, my friends and the blogosphere audience. My mom used to always tell me, that I missed my calling and should’ve become a reporter because I loved the latest news (not to be mistaken with gossip…Lol) but I loved hearing peoples stories and/or reading about them.
I just had a passion for wanting people to know things that were going on around the world may be something people either never heard of or discovered. My passion is writing and most of the stories I share from time to time are from my own collection some original, others stored for perfect times like this to share them with you; It’s a Gift from God that I don’t take lightly because this is a ministry for me.
I actually pray before I get busy with the compilation of every blog post; if one person can walk away with a different attitude or a different perspective on life then Gods Gifting that he has placed on the inside of me can be glorified. I absolutely look forward to working on every post. Tired nights and little sleep, pay off when you take the time to read the things within the blog or leave a comment on a post. I love people, I love inspiring and motivating and sharing my heart, whether it’s a thought, a story, something ridiculous I’ve done or put the light on someone else doing good in the world. So without further ado, I hope you enjoy this story and that it blesses your day. (You might have heard it before)
A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said, “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.”
“Is the man of the house home?” they asked. “No”, she said. “He’s out.”
“Then we cannot come in”, they replied.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. “Go tell them I am home and invite them in,” he said.
The woman went out and invited the men in. “We do not go into a house together,” they replied. “Why is that?” she wanted to know. One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.”
The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. “How nice!” he said. “Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!”
His wife disagreed. “My dear, why don’t we invite Success?” Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: “Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!”
“Let us heed our daughter-in-law’s advice,” said the husband to his wife. “Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”
The woman went out and asked the three old men, “Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest.” Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other two also got up and followed him.
Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love, why are you coming in?” The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him.
Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!”
So, this goes to show that if you have LOVE – you truly do HAVE EVERYTHING!
