The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small,
uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him,
and every day he scanned the horizon for help,
but none seemed forthcoming.
Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of
driftwood to protect him from the elements,
and to store his few possessions. But then one day,
after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky.
The worst had happened; everything was lost.
He was stunned with grief and anger.
God how could you do this to me! he cried. Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of
a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him.
How did you know I was here
asked the weary man of his rescuers. We saw your smoke signal, they replied.
It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad.
But we shouldnt lose heart, because God is at work in our lives,
even in the midst of pain and suffering.
Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground
it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God.
For all the negative things we have to say to ourselves,
God has a positive answer for it在一场船难中，唯一的生存者随着潮水，漂流到一座无人岛上。
Long ago, there was a big cat in the house. He caught many mice while they were stealing food.
One day the mice had a meeting to talk about the way to deal with their common enemy. Some said this, and some said that.
At last a young mouse got up, and said that he had a good idea.
We could tie a bell around the neck of the cat. Then when he comes near, we can hear the sound of the bell, and run away.
Everyone approved of this proposal, but an old wise mouse got up and said, That is all very well, but who will tie the bell to the cat The mice looked at each other, but nobody spoke.
Mr. Li is a good painter. One day he draws a beautiful dragon without eyes.
Mr. Zhou looks at the picture and says, The dragon has no eyes. It isnt a good picture.
But Mr. Li smiles and says, If I add eyes to the dragon, it will fly away.
Mr. Zhou shakes head and says, You are boasting. I dont believe you.
Mr. Li isnt angry. He holds the paintbrush and adds eyes to the dragon. Woe! The dragon really flies.
