Tell me a Story


by

Peter Paton

2005


Illustrated by James Paton

Once upon a time....

There was a boy who yearned for true love and companionship.

He looked everywhere for his heart of gold.....Across the valley and far away lands.....constantly searching for his true love.

Always believing within himself that with heaven's help he would find his sweetheart....his Rapunzel in her ivory tower in some faraway mystical land...



Never giving up hope or despairing....he endured and strove for his love.

Many times he felt despondent and downcast as time passed slowly....and no miracle appeared....still he believed in God and God's Mercy....The Universal God who brought him into this world would deliver him again and again...fulfilling his holy will and plan in him...for him...for destiny.


He suffered silently the slings and arrows of misfortune and discontent.....somehow realizing that things do not happen by will....but by God's sacred timing....all predestined in a master plan and blueprint...known only to angels...


As he matured and grew older in wisdom and experience....

God opened his eyes to his real self.....the well of love and compassion gifted to him by heaven....and he learned to be a free giver of everything he had inherited from his birth......giving to the world freely and happily....as a humble servant of the divine....



God proclaimed to him quietly and secretly....

"Thou art but a pilgrim in this world....a traveler passing through....and if you meet someone on your path....and can render him or her a kindness....do it and do it now....for your paths may never cross again my son"


With no thought for himself and sacrificing himself again and again for the greater good of God and heeding and obeying the clarion call of his destiny....he persevered in faith and confidence, growing in strength and assurance.....that God would requite him in full for his obedience and faithfulness.....

"Be Thou Faithful Unto Death......And I Will Give Thee a Crown Of Life".....


Until finally he reached his calling...he found his Destiny and Holy Grail...The Zenith of his holy mission...His Holy Mirror Image appeared on the distant horizon....His Golden Angel diffusing her beauty and love towards him...


God had kept his promise to his faithful servant..

"The Lord is The Giver of All. To Them that Love and Trust in Him"

..and that boy lived happily ever after with his angel.
