Obedient Wife !!!


The Obedient Wife!!!

There was a man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real “miser” when it came to his money. 

Just before he died, he said to his wife…

“When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.”

And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him. 

Well, he died.

He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there – dressed in black, and her friend was sitting next to her.

When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, “Wait just a moment!” She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket.

Then the undertakers locked the casket down and they rolled it away.

So her friend said,

“Girl, I know you were not a fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband.”

The loyal wife replied,

“Listen, I’m a Christian; I cannot go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money into the casket with him. “

“You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!?!?!?”

“I sure did,” said the wife.

“I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a check…. If he can cash it, then he can spend it.”

Send this to every clever female you know, and to every man who thinks they are smarter than woman!!!

Money Makes Many!!!


THE CLUB 99

 

Some time ago, there lived a King. This King should have been contented with his life, given all the riches and luxuries he had.

 

However, this was not the case! The King always found himself wondering why he just never seemed content with his life.

 

Sure, he had the attention of everyone wherever he went, attended fancy dinners and parties, but somehow, he still felt something was lacking and he couldn’t put his finger on it.

 

One day, the King had woken up earlier than usual to stroll around his palace.

 

He entered his huge living room and came to a stop when he heard someone happily singing away… following this singing… he saw that one of the servants was singing and had a very contented look on his face.

 

This fascinated the King and he summoned this man to his chambers.

 

The man entered the King’s chambers as ordered. The King asked why he was so happy.

 

To this the man replied:

 

“Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but I make enough of a living to keep my wife and children happy. We don’t need too much, a roof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummy. My wife and children are my inspiration; they are content with whatever little I bring home. I am happy because my family is happy.”

 

Hearing this, the King dismissed the servant and summoned his Personal Assistant to his chambers.

 

The King related his personal anguish about his feelings and then related the story of the servant to his Personal Assistant, hoping that somehow, he will be able to come up with some reasoning that here was a King who could have anything he wished for at a snap of his fingers and yet was not contented, whereas, his servant, having so little was extremely contented.

 

The Personal Assistant listened attentively and came to a conclusion.

 

He said, “Your Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99 Club.”

 

“The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?” the King inquired.

 

To which the Assistant replied, “Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club is, you will have to do the following… place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant’s doorstep, you will then understand what The 99 Club is.”

 

That very same evening, the King arranged for 99 Gold coins to be placed in a bag at the servant’s doorstep.

 

Although he was slightly hesitant and he thought he should have put 100 Gold coins into the bag, but since his assistant had advised him to put 99 that is what he did.

 

The servant was just stepping out of his house when he saw a bag at his doorstep.

 

Wondering about its contents, he took it into his house and opened the bag.

 

When he opened the bag, he let out a great big shout of joy…Gold Coins… so many of them. He could hardly believe it.

 

 He called his wife to show her the coins.

 

He then took the bag to a table and emptied it out and began to count the coins.

 

Doing so, he realized that there were 99 coins and he thought it was an odd number so he counted again, and again and again only to come to the same conclusion… 99 Gold Coins.

 

He began to wonder, what could have happened to that last one coin?

 

For no one would leave 99 coins.

 

He began to search his entire house, looked around his backyard for hours, not wanting to lose out on that one coin.

 

Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work harder than ever to make up for that one Gold coin to make his entire collection an even 100 Gold Coins.

 

He got up the next morning, in an extremely horrible mood, shouting at the children and his wife for his delay, not realizing that he had spent most of the night conjuring ways of working hard so that he had enough money to buy himself that gold coin.

 

He went to work as usual – but not in his usual best mood, singing happily – as he grumpily did his daily errands.

 

Seeing the man’s attitude change so drastically, the King was puzzled.

 

He promptly summoned his assistant to his chambers.

 

The King related his thoughts about the servant and once again, his assistant listened.

 

The King could not believe that the servant who until yesterday had been singing away and was happy and content with his life had taken a sudden change of attitude, even though he should have been happier after receiving the gold coins.

 

To this the assistant replied “Ah! But your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club.”

 

He explained: “The 99 Club is just a name given to those people who have everything but yet are never contented, therefore they are always working hard and striving for that extra one to round it out to 100!

 

We have so much to be thankful for and we can live with very little in our lives, but the minute we are given something bigger and better, we want even more!

 

We are not the same happy contented person we used to be, we want more and more and by wanting more and more we don’t realize the price we pay for it.

 

We lose our sleep, our happiness; we hurt the people around us just as a price to pay for our growing needs and desires.

 

That is what joining The 99 Club is all about.”

 

Hearing this King decided that from that day onwards, he was going to start appreciating all the little things in life.

 

Moral of the Story:

 

Striving for more is always good, but let’s not strive so hard and for so much that we loses all those near and dear to our hearts, we shouldn’t compromise our happiness for moments of luxuries!

 

 

Magic Ball!!!


THE MAGIC CRYSTAL BALL

 

In the south of Spain, there was a small village whose people were very joyful and lucky.

 

The children played under the shade of trees in the gardens of their home. 

 

A shepherd boy whose name was Nasir, stayed near the village with his   father, mother and grandmother.

 

Early morning each day, he takes his herd of goats up the hills to find a suitable place for them to graze.

 

In the afternoon he would return with them to the village.

 

At night his grandmother would tell him a story. The story really interested Nasir.

 

As usual, on one of these days, as Nasir was watching his herd and playing his flute he suddenly saw a wonderful light behind the flower bush.

 

When he came towards the branches he saw a transparent and most beautiful crystal ball.

 

The crystal ball was glittering like a colorful rainbow.

 

Nasir carefully took it in his hand and turned it around.

 

With surprise suddenly he heard a weak voice coming from the crystal ball.

 

It said; “You can make a wish that your heart desires and I will fulfill it.”

 

Nasir could not believe that he had actually heard a voice.

 

But he became so engrossed in his thoughts for he had so many wishes but he must wish for something which was impossible like the wish to be able to fly.

 

He said to himself, if I wait till tomorrow I will remember many things.

 

He put the crystal ball in a bag and gathered the herd, happily returned back to the village.

 

He decided that he would not tell anyone about the crystal ball.

 

On the following day also, Nasir could not decide what to wish for, because he really had everything he needed.

 

The days passed as usual, and Nasir appeared to be very cheerful that the people around him were amazed to see his cheerful disposition.

 

One day a boy followed Nasir and his herd and hid behind a tree.

 

Nasir as usual sat in one corner, took out the crystal ball and for a few moments looked at it.

 

The boy waited for the moment when Nasir would go to sleep.

 

Then he took the crystal ball and ran away.

 

When he arrived in the village, he called all the people and showed them the crystal ball.

 

The citizens of that village took the crystal ball in their hand and turned it around with surprise.

 

Suddenly they heard a voice from inside the crystal ball, which says, “I can fulfill your wish.”

 

One person took the ball and screamed, “I want one bag full of gold.”

 

Another took the ball and said loudly, “I want two chests full of jewelry.”

 

Some of them wished that they would have their own palace with grand door made from pure gold instead of their old houses.

 

Some also wished for bags full of jewelry, but nobody asked for gardens in their palaces.

 

All their wishes were fulfilled but still the citizens of the village were not happy.

 

They were jealous because the person that had a palace had no gold and the person that had the gold had no palace.

 

For this reason, the citizens of the village were angry and were not speaking to each other.

 

There was not even one garden which existed in the village where the children could play.

 

The patience of the children was running out and they were uncomfortable.

 

Nasir and his family were happy and pleased.

 

Every morning and afternoon he would play the flute.

 

The children could not wait anymore and decided to return the crystal ball to Nasir.

 

The parents and neighbors went to him.

 

The children said to Nasir; “When we had a small village we all were happy and joyful.”

 

The parent also spoke. In one way or another nobody is happy.

 

The expensive palaces and jewelry only bring us pain.

 

When Nasir saw that the people were really regretful, he said I have not wished till now, if you really want everything to return to its own place, then I will wish for it.

 

Everyone happily agreed.

 

Nasir took the crystal ball in his hand turned around and wished that the village become the same as it was before.

 

Everyone quickly turned towards the village and saw it became the same old village with gardens full of trees and fruits.

 

Once again the people started to live happily and the children played under the shade of trees.

 

From the next day and everyday at sunset the sound of Nasir’s flute could be heard in the village.

 

This story teaches us that we should be happy with whatever we have and not to be greedy.

The Selfish Man!!!


THE SELFISH MAN

 

Once upon a time, there was a selfish man. He liked everything to be his own.

 

He could not share his belongings with anyone, not even his friends or the poor.

 

One day, the man lost thirty gold coins. He went to his friend’s house and told him how he lost his gold coins.

 

His friend was a kind man.

 

As his friend’s daughter was coming from an errand she found thirty gold coins, when she arrived home, she told her father what she had found.

 

The girl’s father told her that the gold coins belong to his friend and he sent for him.

 

When the selfish man arrived, he told him how his daughter had found his thirty gold coins and handed then to him.

 

After counting the gold coins the man said that ten of them was missing and had been taken by the girl as he had forty gold coins.

 

He further commented that he will recover the remaining amount from him.

 

But the girl’s father refused.

 

The man left the gold coins and went to the court and informed the judge there about what had taken place between him and the girl’s father.

 

The judge sent for the girl and her father, and when they arrived asked the girl how many gold coins she found.

 

She replied thirty gold coins. The Judge that asked the selfish man how many gold coins he loosed and he answered forty gold coins.

 

The judge then told the man that the gold coins did not belong to him because the girl found thirty and not forty as he claimed to have lost and then told the girl to take the gold coins and that if anybody is looking for them he will send for the girl.

 

The judge told the man that if anybody reports that they have found forty gold coins he will send for him.

 

It was then that the man confessed that he lied and that he lost thirty gold coins but the judge did not listen to him.

 

This story teaches us to be always honest as dishonest never pays.

 

Cheers,
