A Kingdom In My Heart

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

One day Tauler (a German mystic), met a beggar. "God give you a good day, my friend," he said. The beggar answered, "I thank God I never had a bad one." Then Tauler said, "God give you a happy life my friend." "I thank God," said the beggar, "I am never unhappy." Tauler in amazement said, "What do you mean?" "Well," said the beggar, "When it is fine, I thank God; when it rains, I thank God; when I have plenty, I thank God; when I am hungry, I thank God; and since God's will is my will, and whatever pleases Him pleases me, why should I say I am unhappy when I am not?" Tauler looded at the man in astonishment. "Who are you?" he asked. "I am a king," said the beggar. Where then is your kingdom?" asked Tauler. And the beggar answered quietly, "In my heart." - William Barclay

saved, it is a hard road. My skin still wants all the frills, but it is my choice, to give it up, to teach. Missionary Woman, without a church direction. Oh Well... On my own, giving comfort, as I have been given.
