The Four Candles burned slowly.Their Ambiance was so soft youcould hear them speak...
The first candle said, "I Am Peace, but these days, nobodywants to keep me lit.
" Then Peace's flame slowlydiminishes and goes out completely.
The second candle says, "I Am Faith, but these days,
I amno longer indispensable
Then Faith's flame slowlydiminishes and goes out completely.
Sadly the third candle spoke, "I Am Love and I haven't thestrength to stay lit any longer."
"People put me aside and don't understand myimportance.
They even forget to love those who arenearest to them.
" And waiting no longer, Love goes outcompletely.Suddenly...A child enters the room and sees the threecandles no longer burning.
The child begins to cry, "Whyare you not burning? You are supposed to stay lit until the end.
"Then the Fourth Candle spoke gently to the little boy,"Don't be afraid, for I Am Hope, and while I still burn, wecan re-light the other candles.
"With Shining eyes the child took the Candle of Hope andlit the other three candles.
Never let the Flame of Hope go out of your life.
With Hope, no matter how bad things look andare...Peace, Faith and Love can Shine Brightly in our lives.
