Come Join Us In Remembering What The World Has Forgotten.....  The Seventh Day Sabbath!

THE FOUR CANDLES





The Four Candles burn slowly-
The ambiance was so soft you could hear them talking.


“The First Candle said:

    
I AM PEACE….

However, nobody can keep me lit.  I believe I will go out.”
Its flame rapidly diminishes and goes out completely.


The Second Candle 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 haven’t 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.”

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 the end.”

Saying this, the child begins to cry.

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 shinning eyes, the child took the candle of Hope and lit the other candles.

As long as there is breath, there is Hope.


I pray that you will never lose the light of Hope.
