According to searches on the web, definition of Pied Piper - "In modern times 'Pied Piper' has come to mean any charismatic person who attracts an enthusiastic following." Don't know about charismatic, but it's wonderful to see such a following for this site.

Young Monk

A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church, by hand.

He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript.

So, the new monk goes to the Old Abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

The head monk, says, “We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son.”

He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives, in a locked vault that hasn’t been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the Old Abbot.

So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing.

We missed the bloody

His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.

The young monk asks the old Abbot “What’s wrong, father?”

With a choking voice, the old Abbot replies,

“The word was ….

Says So much

Once all villagers decided to pray for rain.
On the day of prayer all the people gathered,
but only one boy came with an umbrella.

That’s FAITH


When you throw babies in the air,
they laugh because they know you will catch them.

That’s TRUST

.
.

Every night we go to bed
without any assurance of being alive the next morning,
but still we set the alarms to wake up.

That’s HOPE


We plan big things for tomorrow
in spite of zero knowledge of the future.

That’s CONFIDENCE

.

We see the world suffering,
but still we get married and have children.

That’s LOVE

.

On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence
‘I am not 80 years old;
I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.’

That’s ATTITUDE.


Good friends are the rare jewels of life

Difficult to find and impossible replace
