Story : Remember the Duck! Forgive Yourself!

boy-and-duckThere was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He was given a slingshot to play with, but only in the woods. He practiced in the woods, but he could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back to dinner.

As he was walking back, he saw grandma’s pet duck. Just out of impulse, he let it fly, and hit the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved. In a panic, he hid the dead duck in a woodpile only to see his sister watching. Sally had seen it all, but said nothing.

After lunch that day Grandma said, “Sally, let’s wash the dishes.” But Sally said, “Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen today didn’t you Johnny?” And then she whispered to him, “Remember the duck?” So Johnny did the dishes.

Later, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing, and Grandma said, “I’m sorry, but I need Sally to help make supper.” But Sally smiled and said, “Well, that’s all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help.” And she whispered again, “Remember the duck?” So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed home.

After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s, he finally couldn’t stand it any longer. He came to Grandma and confessed that he killed the duck. She knelt down, gave him a hug, and said, “Sweetheart, I know that. But because I love you, I forgive you. But I was wondering just how long would you let Sally make a slave of you.”


Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done? And the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc…)whatever it is.You need to know that:

God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing. He has seen your whole life… He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven. He’s just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.. The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness. He not only forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved. Go ahead and make the difference in someone’s life today.

Story : You don’t need feet to Dance

Sudha Chandran

Sudha Chandran, a classical dancer from India, was cut off in the prime of her career – quite literally – when her right leg had to be amputated after a car accident. Though the incident brought her bright career to a halt, she didn’t give up. In the painful months that followed, she met a doctor who developed an artificial limb made from vulcanized rubber filled with sponge.

So intense was her desire that she decided to go back to dancing after she had been fitted with an artificial leg.

Sudha knew that she believed in herself and could fulfill her dream, she began her courageous journey back to the world of dancing – learning to balance, bend, stretch, walk, turn, twist, twirl and finally dance.

After every public recital, she would ask her Dad about her performance. ‘You still have a long way to go’ was the answer she use to get in return.

In January 1984, Sudha made a historic comeback by giving a public recital in Bombay. She performed in such a marvelous manner that it moved everyone to tears while catapulting her to the number one position again.

That evening when she asked the usual question her dad, he didn’t say anything. He just touched her feet as a tribute to a great artiste.

Sudha’s comeback was such heart-warming that a film producer was inspired to capture the incident into a celluloid box office hit, `Mayuri.’

When someone asked Sudha how she had managed to dance again, she said quite simply, ‘YOU DON’T NEED FEET TO DANCE.’

Nothing is impossible in this world. If you have the will to win, you can achieve anything.

Here is one of her performance
