A Chocolate Moment

Once upon a time there lived a king. The king had a beautiful daughter, the princess. But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt. No matter what; metal, wood, stone. Anything she touched would melt. Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare to marry her. The king was despaired. What could he do to help his daughter? He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king, "if your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured."

The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan. Next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king's wealth. Three young prince took up the challenge. The first brought a sword of finest steel. But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted, and the prince went away sadly. The second man brought diamonds. He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess touched them, they melted. He too was sent away disappointed.

The third prince approached. He told the princess, put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there." The princess did as she was told, though she turned red. She felt something hard. She held it in her hand and did not melt!!! The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed. And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.

Question: What was in the prince's pants? M & M of course. They melt in your mouth, not in your hand. What we're you thinking?

Time and Love

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, Hatred, and all of the others, including Love.

One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink. And so all boats constructed begun to leave. Except for Love. Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment. But when the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help. 

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?" Richness answered, "No, I can't. There's a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There's no place here for you." 

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. "Vanity, please help me!" "I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered. 

Sadness was close by so Love asked, "Sadness, let me go with you." "Oh Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!" Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.

Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come, Love, I will take you." It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where he was going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. 

Realizing how much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, also an elder, "Who Helped me?" "It was Time," Knowledge answered. "Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?" Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."

Truths and Lies

Truth is like surgery. It hurts but it cures. Lie is like a pain killer. It gives instant relief but has side effects forever. The side effects is the erosion of character and reputation as well in many cases. Both things one should not lose.

Some people have a casual relationship with the truth. This is not godly and it is not a good thing. Truth should be embraced and defended at all times. There are things you can be casual with like your gadgets, clothes, shoes, etc. But truth is always serious. Casualness in certain things can lead to casualty in many things. 

For anyone who is in trouble, the first thing you need to do is TO STOP doing what is wrong. Get wise counsel from people who are trustworthy. It is not a hopeless situation. Do not do only that which you desire. Be willing to be corrected and change course. There is a difference between what you desire with what is good. Make sure you do what is good and not only what you desire.
