Three Men Story


Imagine this, three men were building their homes. Man one had all his supplies and a professional crew to help him build. Man two, and Man three had limited supplies and no crew.

One day Man One had his house half built. Man three could see the house was going to be huge. Man, two didn't notice because he was working so hard on his house that nothing could take his focus from it. 

Man Three was watching Man One build his house one day and he saw the granite counter and tiles that Man One had imported. He looked at his own and felt his counter and tiles were no longer as nice. 

Man Three said to Man Two "I'm selling my tiles if you want to buy them, I'll give you a discount."

Man Two was ecstatic and said "Yes! " because he was working day and night he was running out of tiles for his second room. 

The day came when Man One was putting the roof on his huge house.  Man, Three ran to get Man Two to watch with him. "Man Two,  come watch this show-off,  Man One put the roof on his house.  It's so big I hope it falls off! "

Man Two said "Sorry, I don't have time. I'm also putting my roof on today. "

Man Three said "Your roof? "

Man Two said, "Yes, my house is built."

Man Three said, "Oh but it's small."

Man Two said, "Yes, that's true but I still have a home."

The two men looked toward the unfinished home of Man Three. Man Three said "If it wasn't for me you wouldn't have your second bedroom floor finished"

Man Two said, "True."

Man, three said, "It looks strange having mixed tiles in one bedroom, anyway."

Man Two said, "Nobody will notice with the throw rug over it."

Man Three Looked at Man Two's home. It was humble, but it was built. He realized at that moment that he was not only envious of Man One, but now he was also envious of Man Two. 

Envy is a waste of time. When you envy others you take the focus from the blessings in your life. When you spend more time looking at what others have you are distracted from perfecting what you have.

Accept what you already have and work with it. 

Love Cerise.

Crying For Change In You

Sometimes we hold back our tears, feeling it is a sign of weakness to cry, a sign of being out of control, a sign that we are not able to handle life's circumstances. For some not crying could be a trained behaviour from environmental upbringing, and for these reasons amongst others quite often we do not embrace the powerful emotion of crying. As the years pass them by, some people get so good at holding back their tears that they eventually adopt the word 'strength' to describe their emotional disconnect. The fact that they have graduated from being connected to their tear trigger emotion, to a point where they robotically mask it, does not worry them. Even though their lack of emotional reaction is a large part of their failed relationships, which they are aware of in most situations, they continue to refer to their unwillingness to cry as strength. Moreover, when one accomplishes the disconnection they do not realize how deeply they are affecting their other emot

Fall Into A Pit

 Today's Message  You may have someone plotting and planning against you. Speaking badly about you, or even creating lies attempting to tarnish your good name.  A court case, a job issue, a housing dispute, a relationship concern, backbiting friends, and the list goes on. This concern could cause you to feel anxiety and may even create tension in your life.  When you feel you're at your lowest, and you fear the enemy will win, remember this Bible quote;  "A foolish man will dig a pit for someone to fall into, but trip and mistakenly fall into the pit themselves."  That means any person who is trying to set you up to fall will fail. The power they think they have is only power enough to harm themselves... Do not fret, do not fear, do not allow your mind's imagination to get wild in thought.  If it was your last day of life, would you allow that person to affect you? Probably not. So live the rest of your days doing the same.   Love Cerise.
