Four Boyfriends

THIS TURNED OUT TO BE SO 
DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I 
THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO 
BE.. IT IS A WONDERFUL 
WONDERFUL MESSAGE!!
ENJOY

Once upon a time there was a 
girl who had four boyfriends.

She loved the fourth boyfriend 
the most and adorned him with 
rich robes and treated him to the 
finest of delicacies. She gave him
 nothing but the best.

She also loved 
the third boyfriend 
very much and was always showing 
him off to neighboring kingdoms. 
However, she feared that one day 
he would leave her or another.

She also loved 
her second boyfriend.
 He was her confidant and was 
always kind, considerate and 
patient with her. Whenever this girl
 faced a problem, she could confide
 in him, and he would 
help her get through the difficult 
times.

The girl's 
first boyfriend was a 
very loyal partner and had made
 great contributions in maintaining
 her wealth and kingdom. 
However, she did not love the first 
boyfriend, although he loved her 
deeply, she hardly took notice of 
him! 

One day, the girl fell ill and she 

knew her time was short. She 
thought of her luxurious life and
 wondered, 'I now have four 
boyfriends with me,
 but when I die, will I be alone.' 

Thus, she asked the fourth 

boyfriend, 'I loved you the most, 
endowed you with the finest clothing
 and showered great care over you. 
Now that I'm dying, will you follow me
 and keep me company?
'No way!', replied the fourth boyfriend, 
and he walked away without another 
word.

His answer cut like a sharp knife 

right into her heart. 

The sad girl then asked the 

third boyfriend'I loved you all my 
life. Now that I'm dying, will you 
follow me and keep me company?' 
'No!', replied the third boyfriend. 
'Life is too good! When you die, 
I'm going to 
marry someone else!' Her heart 
sank and turned cold. 

She then asked the second 

boyfriend'I have always turned
 to you for help and you've always
 been there for me. 
When I die, will you follow me and
 keep me company?' 

'I'm sorry, I can't help you out this 

time!', replied the second boyfriend.
 'At the 
very most, I can only walk with you to 
your grave.' 
His answer struck her like a bolt of 
lightning, and the girl was devastated. 


Then a voice called out: 'I'll go with 

you. I'll follow you no matter where you
 go.' 
The girl looked up, and there was her 
first boyfriend. He was very skinny
 as he suffered from malnutrition and 
neglect.

Greatly grieved, the girl said, 'I 

should have taken much better care
 of you when I had the chance!'

In truth, you have four boyfriends in 

your lives:

Your fourth boyfriend is 
your body
No matter how much time and effort 
you lavish in making it look good, it 
will leave you when you die.

Your third boyfriend is 
your 

possessionsstatus and wealth.
When you die, it will all go to others.

Your second boyfriend is 
your 

family and friends. No matter how
 much they have been there for you,
 the furthest they can stay by you is 
up to the grave. 

And your first boyfriend is 

your spiritOften neglected in
 pursuit of wealth, 
power and pleasures of the world. 

However, your spirit is the only 

thing that will follow you where ever
 you go. Cultivate, strengthen and 
cherish it now, for it is the only part
 of you that will follow you to the 
throne of God and continue with you
 throughout Eternity.

Thought for the day: Remember, 

when the world pushes you to your 
knees, you're in the perfect position 
to pray.

Pass this on to someone you care 
about - I just did.

Being happy doesn't mean 

everything's perfect. It means you've 
decided to see beyond the 
imperfections.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
