8: Price tag

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a dollar twenty ($20) bill, in the room of two hundred (200) people. Speaker asked, "Who would like this dollar twenty ($20) bill?" Hands started going up.

Speaker said, "I am going to give this dollar twenty ($20) bill to one of you but first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple up the dollar twenty ($20) bill. He asked, "Who still wants it?" Still hands were up in the air.

"Well, what if I do this?" He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty and asked, "Who still wants it?" Still hands went up into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what was done to the money, it was still wanted because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth dollar twenty ($20).

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We may feel as though we are worthless and useless.

But no matter what has happened or will happen, you will never lose your value: dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you.


With lots of love,

7: What should I do?

One day a young lady was driving along with her father.
They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, 
What should I do?"

He said "keep driving". 
Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was
Getting worse.

"What should I do."
The young lady asked?
"Keep driving," her father replied.

On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.
She told her dad, 
"I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. 
It is Terrible, and everyone is pulling over!"

Her father told her, 
"Don't give up, just keep driving!"

Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she
Could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on
Dry land, and the sun came out.

Her father said, 
"Now you can pull over and get out."

She said 
"But why now?"

He said 
"When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are
Still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is now over.

This is a testimony for anyone who is going through "HarD TimEs".

Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up. 
You don't have to…
If you keep going, soon your storm will be over 
The sun will shine upon your face again.Insya ALLAH.

With lots of love,
