by: Author Unknown, Source Unknown
There once was an oyster
Whose story I tell,
Who found that some sand
Had got into his shell.
It was only a grain,
but it gave him great pain.
For oysters have feelings
Although they're so plain.
Now, did he berate
the harsh workings of fate
That had brought him
To such a deplorable state?
Did he curse at the government,
Cry for election,
And claim that the sea should
Have given him protection?
'No,' he said to himself
As he lay on a shell,
Since I cannot remove it,
I shall try to improve it.
Now the years have rolled around,
As the years always do,
And he came to his ultimate
And the small grain of sand
That had bothered him so
Was a beautiful pearl
All richly aglow.
Now the tale has a moral,
for isn't it grand
What an oyster can do
With a morsel of sand?
What couldn't we do
If we'd only begin
With some of the things
That get under our skin.
Dont ask me why it double posted LOL I did want to say please anybody feel free to post your lessons to its for everyone Tooter
Three Kernels of Corn Parable
By: Author Unknown
Three young men were once given three kernels of corn
apiece by a wise old sage, who admonished them to go out
into the world, and use the corn to bring themselves good
fortune. The first young man put his three kernels of corn
into a bowl of hot broth and ate them.
The second thought, I can do better than that, and he
planted his three kernels of corn. Within a few months, he
had three stalks of corn. He took the ears of corn from the
stalks, boiled them, and had enough corn for three meals.
The third man said to himself, I can do better than that!
He also planted his three kernels of corn, but when his
three stalks of corn produced, he stripped one of the
stalks and replanted all of the seeds in it, gave the
second stalk of corn to a sweet maiden, and ate the third.
His one full stalk's worth of replanted corn kernels gave
him 200 stalks of corn! And the kernels of these he
continued to replant, setting aside only a bare minimum to
eat. He eventually planted a hundred acres of corn. With
his fortune, he not only won the hand of the sweet maiden
but purchased the land owned by the sweet maiden's father.
And he never hungered again.
The more you give, the more you get. However, that should
NOT be the reason for your giving.
