Reality is more Wonderful than Fiction

      “Three princes were once sent by the king, their father, to bring back wonders from distant countries: the one whose present should be the most extraordinary was to succeed him on the throne.  The youngest prince brought back a walnut, and his brothers smiled disdainfully.  The walnut was cracked and there came out of it a hazelnut, the hazelnut contained a pea, the pea a grain of hempseed, the grain of hempseed a grain of millet; the grain of millet was opened, and a piece of cloth was drawn from it, twenty ells* long.”  When I read greedily so many beautiful [but fictitious] stories; I was wont, at the end of the volume, to sit and carry on the vision in my thoughts; then I awoke, and wept with grief at living only in life, instead of living in fairy tales; but I very early discovered that real life contains a hundred times more wonders than these fables, and I became reconciled to my fate.

         Is not that true: the wonders which God has created and placed in this world are far more exhilarating, beautiful, and wondrous than any which any man could make up; yet the most wonderful thing which God has for us, is not material, but his wondrous love, that Love which surpasses all understanding!  To God be the Glory!!

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
