[] SAND & STONE !!!



A beautiful life does not just happen, it is built daily by prayer, humility, sacrifice and hard work.

Sand Stone


An illustrative friendship story about a walk through the desert, which tests the strength of their friendship.

During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything,
he wrote in the sand:

Today my best friend
slapped me in the face

They kept on walking, until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but his friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning,
he wrote on a stone:
Today my best friend
saved my life

The friend, who had slapped and saved his best friend, asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand, and now, you write on a stone, why?"

The other friend replied:
When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand, where the winds of forgiveness can erase it away, but when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.

Learn to write your hurts in the sand and to carve your blessings in stone.

May God's glorious blessings
abound always to You Family !!!
