Keep Hope

Once, in a room, there were four candles working together-burning slowly.The ambiance was so soft you could hear them talking. The first one said: “I am peace. However, nobody can keep me late. I believe I will go out soon”. Its flame rapidly diminishes and goes out completely.

The second one says: “I am faith! Most of all, I am no longer indispensable, so it doesn’t make any sense that I stay lit any longer.” When it finished talking, a breeze softly blew on it putting it out.

Sadly, the third candle spoke in its turn: “I am Love! I have not got the strength to stay lit. People put me aside and don’t understand my importance. They even forget to love those who are nearest to them due to their specific greed.” And waiting no longer it goes out.

Suddenly…..A child enters the room and sees three candles not burning. “Why are you not burning? You are supposed to stay lit till your end.” Then, the fourth candle said: “Don’t be afraid, while I am still burning. We can re-light the other candles, I am hope!” With shining eyes, the child took the candle of hope and lit the other candles. The flame of hope should never go out from our lives and that each of us can maintain Hope, Faith, Peace and Love!!!

Be Happy – restore your hope to bring about faith, peace and love.
