Today morning I went to saloon the get a hair cut. As there was a queue before me I stated reading the newspapers and magazines which were kept there. I read a story which was very nice and provided me some relief because personaly I was in very depressed condition for some unknown reason. The story goes like this,

Once there was a lion in a forest. It was very much worried all the time, because it thought it’s nail were not strong and it was weaker than most of the other lions. Then it saw an elephant and thought If I would have been an elephant it would be lot easier to me because I don’t have to hunt other animals for food and live happily. Then it saw the elephant moving it’s ears on the sides. It asked the elephant why are you doing so. The elephant replied that it doesn’t move it’s ears like that ants will go inside and because of that it will die. Then the lion realized that everybody in this world has some problem, but everyone has move on with it until they reach their goal.

There are no extraordinary men…. just ordinary men forced to meet extraordinary circumstances

Admiral William Frederick Halsey Jr.

Reading this story reminded me a song which was taught in my school days, the song’s name is “Count your blessings”.

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
