Grateful Hearts, Short Story


Shining Star - Earth, Wind, and Fire

The Star

Grateful Hearts

I looked up into the midnight sky,

and there I saw a falling-star,

and this falling-star

just kept falling!

This falling-star fell right out

of the midnight sky,

and directly into my hands!

The Question

My friend, who was beside me,

asked me in a trembling voice,

"What are y-y-you going to do

w-w-with that s-s-star?"

The Answer

I looked down at the breathing,

twinkling, star that I held

within my hands,

and after only a short moment

of very deep thought,

I carefully, and deliberately,

replied back to my friend,

"I am going to give this star away!

I will give it to someone

who has an important

and beautiful wish

that they need fulfilled."

The Joy

And, I found this

to be a very easy decision

for me because, you see,

I had all that I

had ever wished for already:

My family's health;

Shelter from the elements;

Daily food;

Clean water to drink;

Air to breathe;

Legs to walk; and,

Peace in my heart

from the Great Love

of our Heavenly Father!

Therefore, what more

could I possibly wish for?

The Need

I ended up giving the star away

to my friend who was beside me,

because he had an important

and beautiful wish to be fulfilled!

He wanted his heart to be made

whole, again!

The Living Star

You see, upon the sight

of my holding a breathing,

twinkling, living star

within my very hands,

(that fell from the midnight sky),

my dear friend had a massive heart-attack!
