NAILS IN THE FENCE By Babsie van der Berg
NAILS IN THE FENCE Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence.(Most importantly the last sentence)
There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a
bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must
hammer a nail into the back of the fence.The first day the boy had
driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned
to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually
dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to
drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when
the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and
the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day
that he was able to hold his temper.
The days passed and the
young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were
gone.The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He
said, 'You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.
The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they
leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw
it out. But It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound
will still be there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.
Remember that friends are very rare jewels indeed. They make you smile
and encourage you to succeed; They lend an ear, they share words of
praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.It's National
Friendship Week. Show your friends how much you care.. Send this to
everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means sending it back to the
person who sent it to you! If it comes back to you, you will then know
you have a circle of friends. YOU ARE MY FRIEND AND I AM HONORED!
Send this 2 every friend u have and 2 ur family (they need 2 know that u love them too).
Pls forgive me if I have eva left a 'hole' in ur fence.
IS GOD WITH YOU? By Babsie van der Berg
Once there was a young girl who decided to take a short cut home from
school. The fastest way to her house was to cut through an alley. The
girl approached the alley. She saw a man as though he was waiting for
someone. She said a prayer:"Dear God please lead me through this alley
safe and unharmed. Amen." The girl walked through the alley and past the
man. Later on that night the girl decided to watch the news. She saw
the mans Mug shot from the alley guilty of murder and rape against a
young girl. The police said the man told them another girl had passed
through the alley 10 minutes before. They asked him why he didn't attack
the first girl. He said there was a man walking beside her. God walks
with us. We deny his presences but he is always here. 95% of people will
just read this and shut their phones, but be among the 5% that will
read & send to friends! Don't be ashamed to admit you're a creation
