The Flame of Hope

Never let the Flame of Hope go out


Dec 23, 2017

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.

  1. Sorry I have been fighting off a nasty head cold. I have had to catch up. For some reason WordPress’ latest update showed I wasn’t following you. How dare they do that to one of my favorite blogs. 😉 I have corrected it and hopefully have caught up.

    1. True! I follow my intuition in choosing the articles (as always) :). And true again for the whole contents of the Pandora’s box had escaped except for Hope. Thank you for taking your time to visit and comment!
