Inspirational Story


May 8, 2008
I asked God why I wasn't rich. He showed me a man with the wealth of a thousand Kings,
who was lonely, and had no one to share with.

I asked God why I wasn't beautiful. He showed me a woman more beautiful than any other,
who was ugly because of her vanity.

I asked God why He'd allowed me to become old. He showed me a boy of 16,
who lay dead at the scene of a car accident.

I asked God why I didn't have a bigger house. He showed me a family of six,
who had just been evicted from their tiny shack, and were forced, to live on the streets.

I asked God why I had to work. He showed me a man who couldn't find a decent job,
because he'd never learned to read.

I asked God why I wasn't more popular. He showed me a socialite with a thousand friends,
who all left the moment the money and parties were no longer there.

I asked God why I wasn't smarter. He showed me a natural born genius,
serving life in prison for making ill use of his knowledge.

I knew then how much He loved me.

Keep smiling... we have million reasons to smile!

Thanks and Regards
