The Story Of A Candle

Hello everyone,
So this post is going to be a bit different. It’s actually a prelude to a much more intense post. It’s actually veering away from the whole “encounter with Christ” sort of posts I’ve been posting up lately. Anyway, I’ll explain it later, for now, enjoy the story:
Once upon a time, there was a little girl. Her world was bleak, dark, and very much lonely. One day, she stumbled along a candle, standing in the middle of a deserted street. Feeling brave, she went up to it and using the matches in her pocket, she lit it.
When the wick burned brightly, her whole world changed. Gone were the looming shadows and scary monsters. In all honesty, the candle itself was very beautiful and because of its simple beauty, she wanted to show the whole world. So she set out to find the people who would like to see the candle too.
On her way, she did her very best to protect the candle, hiding it from the rain, the wind, the snow and sleet, the sun and moon too. Through it all, the candle burned brightly, and when she finally made it to a crowed part of town, she breathed a sigh of relief. She’d be able to show off her candle very soon.
As she traversed the many bodies, she learned one very important thing. The only thing that could blow out her pretty candle, were other humans. Squeezing past many people, she encountered many who wanted to blow out her flame, and so in her desperation she ran. She ran as fast as she could, away from the people who wanted to blow out the only light in her bleak world.
When she’d made it to safety, she breathed another sigh of relief and checked on her precious candle. She gasped in surprise as she gazed at the now weak flame. Through her rush to get away from the people who wanted to stop the light, the flame itself was almost blown away. Desperate she tried to keep the light going once more…
Can you guess what I’m talking about? Well, you’re going to have to wait, because next week, I will be posting up the reason for this short story. For now why don’t you come up with your own ending? Does the candle come back to life? Does the little girl get to show others her pretty candle? Or does the flame go out? Will the girl be plunged back into the darkness and misery?
Well, as always, do with this post what you will, and God Bless! ^^
