Gold Wrapping Paper
hey every body I got this msg on my email and I would like to share it with you:
>It did touch me. Gold Wrapping Paper I received this from a friend who
>a choice to make. It said that I had a choice to make too. I've
>Now it's your turn to choose. The story goes that some time ago a
>punished her 5 year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold
>wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when
>child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas
>tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother
>next morning and said, "This is for you, Momma." The mother was
>by her earlier over-reaction, but her anger flared again when she
>the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh
>manner. "Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present
>there's supposed to be something inside the package?" She had tears
in her
>eyes and said, "Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until
>was full." The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her
>around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her
>anger. An accident took the life of the child only a short time later,
>it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the
>of her life. Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems
>would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the
love of
>the child who had put it there. In a very real sense, each of us, as
>beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love
>kisses from our children, family, friends and GOD. There is no more
>precious possession anyone could hold. You now have two choices: 1.
>this on to your friends, or 2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch
>heart. As you can see, I took choice No. 1. Friends are like angels
>lift us to our feet, when our wings have trouble remembering how to
>happiest moments of the upcoming holidays as you celebrate your family
>traditions and create a lifetime of memories."
GOd bless and pray for me.

  • hay thanks emprocious for sharing that story i reelly lyked it GBU

    i reely like this story
    Years ago, a 10 year old boy approached the counter of a soda shop and
    climbed on a stool. What does an ice cream sundae cost? he asked the
    "Fifty cents," she answered.
    The boy reached deep in his pockets and pulled out an assortment of change,
    counting it carefully as the waitress grew impatient. She had "bigger"
    customers to wait on.
    "Well, how much would just plain ice cream be?" the boy asked.
    The waitress responded with noticeable irritation in her voice, "Thirty-five
    Again, the boy slowly counted his money. "May I have some plain ice cream in
    a dish then, please?" He gave the waitress the correct amount, and she
    brought him the ice cream.
    Later, the waitress returned to clear the boys dish and when she picked it
    up, she felt a lump in her throat. There on the counter the boy had left two
    nickels and five pennies. She realized that he had had enough money for the
    sundae, but sacrificed it so that he could leave her a tip.

    Moral: Before passing judgment, first treat others with courtesy, dignity
    and respect.

    >This one should keep us all thinking.
    >I chose #2, now you pick one.
    >This is a true story of something that happened just a
    >few years ago at USC. There was a professor of
    >philosophy there who was a deeply committed atheist.
    >His primary goal for one required class was to spend
    >the entire semester proving that God couldn't exist.
    >His students were always afraid to argue with him
    >because of his impeccablelogic. For twenty years, he
    >had taught this class and no one had ever had the
    >courage to go against him.
    >Sure, some had argued in class at times, but no one
    >had ever really gone against him because of his
    >At the end of every semester on the last day, he would
    >say to his class of 300 students, "If there is anyone
    >here who still believes in Jesus, stand up!"
    >In twenty years, no one had ever stood up. They knew
    >what he was going to do next. He would say, "Because
    >anyone who believes in God is a fool".
    >If God existed, he could stop this piece of chalk from
    >hitting the ground and breaking. Such a simple task
    >to prove that He is God, and yet He can't do it."
    >And every year, he would drop the chalk onto the tile
    >floor of the classroom and it would shatter into a
    >hundred pieces.
    >All of the students would do nothing but stop and
    >stare. Most of the students thought that God couldn't
    >exist. Certainly, a number of Christians had slipped
    >through, but for 20 years, they had been too afraid to
    >stand up.
    >Well, a few years ago there was a freshman who
    >happened to enroll. He was a Christian, and had heard
    >the stories about his professor. He was required to
    >take the class for his major, and he was afraid. But
    >for three months that semester, he prayed every
    >morning that he would have the courage to stand up no
    >matter what the professor said, or what the class
    >Nothing they said could ever shatter his faith...he
    >Finally, the day came. The professor said, "If there
    >is anyone here who still believes in God, stand up!"
    >The professor and the class of 300 people looked at
    >him, shocked, as he stood up at the back of the
    >The professor shouted, "You FOOL!!! If God existed,
    >he would keep this piece of chalk from breaking when
    >it hit the ground!"
    >He proceeded to drop the chalk, but as he did, it
    >slipped out of his fingers, off his shirt cuff, onto
    >the pleat of his pants, down his leg, and off his
    >shoe. As it hit the ground, it simply rolled away
    >unbroken. The professor's jaw dropped as he stared at
    >the chalk. He looked up at the young man, and then ran
    >out of the lecture hall.
    >The young man who had stood, proceeded to walk to the
    >front of the room and shared his faith in Jesus for
    >the next half hour. 300 students stayed and listened
    >as he told of God's love for them and of His power
    >through Jesus.
