What comes to mind, when you think of Dragons? Fire? Destruction? Desolation? Death? Yeah, that's pretty much all we ever think of when dealing with Dragons. Is it possible that a Dragon might have a heart, feelings, and emotions (other than pissed off all the time)? Has anyone ever thought that the Dragon may be weary of his hot and hellish ways, or the fire that is ever-burning in his gut? Has anyone ever thought to offer the Dragon a glass or pitcher of ice cold Country Time??
Yeah, this is gonna be a weird one, but somebody is gonna feel me on this. What if all the Dragon has been offered is gas, kerosene, firewood, and diesel fuel rather than a good old fashioned thirst quencher, like Country Time? Imagine a Dragon, going straight guano on the countryside, burning farm after farm. As he approaches the final farm, he is met by the Farmer with a pitcher of ice cold Country Time. Bewildered, the Dragon downs the pitcher, and immediately feels what he has never felt.......PEACE.......within himself, throughout his being, and in his heart. A relationship begins, a friendship, between the Dragon and the Farmer. True, the fire still resides inside the Dragon, but the Farmer provides exactly what the Dragon needs to have peace and balance in his life.
The Dragon goes as far as to help the Farmer plant his fields, tend the crops, and even rebuild the surrounding farms that the Dragon once decimated. Protector, the Dragon becomes of the community that took him in. Thanks to the courage and bravery of ONE, a Dragon has found a Beautiful Peace, that has been longed for, all his life. Furthermore, an entire community has gained a new respect for and understanding of what was once only known as fire, destruction, desolation, and death.
We all know Dragons in our lives, and more often than not, we only fuel their fires. Have you ever thought to offer a quencher of fire, rather than an accelerant? Think about it.
Sometimes you simply have to get to the heart of a person, to fully understand their value, as well as your own, if any.......
HAPPY WEDNESDAY Y'ALL!!! I LOVE YOU ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE!!
