The Wine Company

Dear Wine Lover

We all have our low times.  There are moments when I feel like I am a peasant who has to work on my lord’s land, in return for protection and livelihood. A friend advised me to come to terms with it, sharing this story:

Once upon a time, there was a King who had 10 wild dogs.  He used them to torture & kill any minister that misguided him.  He ordered the Minister, who had offended him, to be thrown to the dogs.  Before the fateful day, the Minister started feeding the dogs, caring them, washing them, providing comfort for them. On the execution day when the Minister was thrown in, the dogs wagged their tails and licked his feet.  The King was baffled.  The Minister said, "My Lord, I served the dogs for only 10 days & they didn’t forget my service; I served you for 10 years, and you forgot all at my first mistake’.  The King replaced the dogs with a crocodile!

Sounds like a sad ending?  Well, I decided to make up my ending – the Minister poked the eye of the crocodile, blinded the creature and escaped, overthrew the King.

Despite the circumstances (working for a livelihood and at the mercy of things we cannot change), life is still good.  Let’s count our blessings and enjoy the small things that God has given us.
