A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife opened a package.

“What food might this contain?” The mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap. Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning. “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.”  The mouse turned to the pig and told him, “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The pig sympathized, but said, “I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.”

The mouse turned to the cow and said, “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.”  So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone.

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house, like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital, and she returned home with a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient.

But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died. So many people came for her funeral, and the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.

The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.

So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn’t concern you, remember when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk. We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

Most importantly, today might be one person’s storm, but tomorrow might be yours. Therefore, do not ignore that person, as they go through their storm. In this world, no one is immune. We all must face tribulations at some point or another (John 16:33). However, when your storm begins, bear in mind, you will need some form of help and support as well.

In a Moment Life Changes!

Life is so precious, yet so uncertain. It’s very hard to imagine how your life can change in a moment. It might be a major catastrophe that you have no idea would have affected your life, or it could be a joyous moment that you will never forget.

In this post, I will focus on the latter, which is the positive life changing moments. It could be that you’re going to be a parent for the first time, or you are going to say, “I Do,” or you have to move away to a new location, and the thought of changes scares you, yet excites you. You might have just started a new relationship, and the thought of being in love again, makes you happy.

In life, no matter what bad experiences you have encountered, your life can suddenly change for the better.  It’s always a great thing to be positive. Therefore, if you are experiencing a bad life changing moment right now, just know that your good life changing moment is yet to come. Your pain is never permanent, and your trials and tribulations are temporary.
