The Three Analogy Of The Three Types Of People In Your Life by Tyler Perry

Madamsabi's Blog

I have this tree analogy when I think of people in my life, be it friends, family, acquaintances, employees, co-workers, whomever… They are all placed inside what I call my tree test. It goes like this:

LEAF PEOPLE:
Some people come into your life and they are like leaves on a tree. They are only there for a season. You can’t depend on them or count on them because they are weak and only there to give you shade. Like leaves, they are there to take what they need and as soon as it gets cold or a wind blows in your life they are gone. You can’t be angry at them, it’s just who they are.

BRANCH PEOPLE:
There are some people who come into your life and they are like branches on a tree. They are stronger than leaves, but you have to be careful with them. They…

CEO Reveals Secret : by Sandra Chereb

Madamsabi's Blog

For decades, Jay Thiessens hid a painful secret as he built his machine and tool company from a mom-and-pop operation into a $5 million-a-year enterprise. During the day he hid behind the role of a harried businessman, too busy to review contracts or shuffle through mail. At night, his wife, Bonnie, would help him sort through the paperwork at the kitchen table, in the living room, or sometimes sitting up in bed.

Other tasks he delegated to a core group of managers at B&J Machine Tool Co. who had no idea their boss couldn’t read.

“I worked for him for seven years and I had no clue,” said Jack Sala, now the engineering manager for Truckee Precision, a B&J competitor. “I was his general manager. He would bring legal stuff to me and say, ‘You’re better at legalese than me.’ I never knew I was the only one reading them.”

The Visiting Pastor

Madamsabi's Blog

The new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners.

image

At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. He took out a card, wrote ‘Revelation 3 verse 20’ on the back and stuck it in the door.
When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, ‘Genesis 3 verse 10.’

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3 verse 20 begins ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock.’

Genesis 3 verse 10 reads, ‘I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.’

The Three ‘I’ In A Human

Madamsabi's Blog

One day a grandchild came to his grandpa and asked:

image

– What is soul?

Grandpa told him a story that he heard a long time ago from his own grandpa:

– It is said that there are three ‘I’ in a human, which support and guide him through his whole life. The first ‘I’ – is the coldest. It is seen by every surrounding person. The second ‘I’- is the warmest. It is only seen by the closest people to you. The first and the second always argue for power over the man, and their discord awakens doubt and fear in us. And only the third ‘I’ can reconcile and find a compromise between the first two. No one can see it. Sometimes we are unaware of its existence, but it is always with us.

– I never heard about it, – the grandchild said.

Grandpa smiled and answered:

–…

For My Lover, Returning To His Wife by Anne Sexton

Madamsabi's Blog

She is all there.
She was melted carefully down for you
and cast up from your childhood,
cast up from your one hundred favorite aggies.

image

She has always been there, my darling.
She is, in fact, exquisite.
Fireworks in the dull middle of February
and as real as a cast-iron pot.
Let’s face it, I have been momentary.
A luxury. A bright red sloop in the harbor.
My hair rising like smoke from the car window.
Littleneck clams out of season.
She is more than that. She is your have to have,
has grown you your practical your tropical growth.
This is not an experiment. She is all harmony.
She sees to oars and oarlocks for the dinghy,
has placed wild flowers at the window at breakfast,
sat by the potter’s wheel at midday,
set forth three children under the moon,
three cherubs drawn by Michelangelo,
done this with her…

When The Student Schools The Teacher

Madamsabi's Blog

A university professor asked his students a question:

image

– Does everything that exist was created by God?

One student answered bravely:

– Yes, created by God.

– Did God create everything? – asked the professor.

– Yes, Sir, – the student answered.

Professor said:

– If God created everything, that means that God created evil, because it exists. And according to this principal, the things we do determine who we are, that means – God is evil.

The student got quiet after hearing that answer. Professor was very happy with himself. He boasted to the students, that he proved once again that God is a myth.

Another student raised his hand and said:

– Can I ask you a question, professor?

– Of course, – professor answered.

The student got up and asked:

– Professor, does cold exist?

– Of course it exists. Didn’t you ever get cold?

Students laughed…

Advising A Fool

Madamsabi's Blog

On a mango tree in a jungle, there lived many birds. They were happy in their small nests. Before the onset of the rainy season, all the animal of the jungle repaired their homes. The birds also made their homes more secure.

Many birds brought twigs and leaves and others wove their nests. “We should also store some food for our children,” chirped one of the birds. And they collected food, until they had enough to see them through the rainy season. They kept themselves busy preparing for the tough times.

Soon the rains came. It was followed by thunder and lighting. All the animals and birds stayed in their homes.

It continued raining for many days. One day, a monkey wet in the rain came into the forest. He sat on a branch, shivering with cold, water dripping from its body.

The poor monkey tried his best to get…
