The Four Candles burned slowly.
Their ambiance was so soft you could hear them speak...
The first candle said, "I Am Peace, but these days, nobody
wants to keep me lit."Then Peace's flame slowly diminished
and went out completely.
The second candle said, "I Am Faith, but these days, I am
no longer indispensable."Then Faith's flame slowly
diminished and went out completely.
Sadly the third candle spoke, "I Am Love and I haven't the
strength to stay lit any longer.""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, Love went out completely.
A child entered the room and saw the three candles no
longer burning.The child began to cry,"Why are you not
burning? You are supposed to stay lit until the end."
Then the Fourth Candle spoke gently to the little boy,
"Don't be afraid, for I Am Hope, and while I still burn,
we can re-light the other candles."
With shining eyes, the child took the Candle of Hope
and lit the other three candles.
Never let the Flame of Hope go out. With Hope in your life,
no matter how bad things may be, Peace, Faith and Love
may shine brightly once again.

Kingdom Living - Like A Child
"The Kingdom of God is at hand."
"The Kingdom of God is within you."
"You must become like little children in order to enter into
the Kingdom of God.
With child-like faith we thank the Father for sending us His
Son. We thank Jesus for His death & resurrection, thereby
reconciling us to the Father.
We thank the Father and the Son for sending us the Holy
Spirit to fill us with his power and love and enabling us to
live as fully "alive" witnesses...His Way...His Truth...His Life!
Come Holy Spirit. Fill our lives anew. Pour out your Spirit
upon us, your people. Renew the face of the earth!
