Unclaimed Gifts

Saturday 01/29/2005 1:45 AM

"It was said that a holy man, because of his great virtue, was taken by the angels to visit heaven. As the angels were escorting him through the heavenly mansion, they passed through a great hall piled high with gifts of every kind. The man asked his guides why all these gifts were here. They replied, "These are the things people prayed for but quit their prayers right before they were to be delivered.""

— from Thick Face, Black Heart by Chin-Ning Chu
