    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

    Destiny ­ stew.

    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.

  • 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.
