I asked God for water, he gave me an ocean.
I asked God for a flower, he gave me a garden.
I asked God for a tree, he gave me a forest.
I asked God for a friend, he gave me YOU.
"There is not enough darkness in the world to put out the light of one candle."
The Candle of Love, Hope and Friendship
This candle was lit on the 11th of September, 2001. Someone who cares about you has helped keep it alive by sending it to you.
Please don't let The Candle Of Love, Hope and Friendship die! "A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle"
And for Christians, this sobering reminder ---
"Remember, you may be the only light in someone's darkness!"
