Do you really know what’s the best part of LIFE?

Suatu hari seorang profesor menyewa sebuah sampan untuk membuat kajian di tengah lautan.Pendayung itu merupakan lelaki tua yang sangat pendiam. Profesor sengaja mengupah lelaki tua itu kerana dia tidak mahu orang yang menemaninya banyak menyoal tentang apa yang dia lakukan.

Dengan tekun Profesor itu melakukan tugasnya tanpa menghiraukan pendayung sampan. Dia mengambil air laut dan diisi kedalam tabung uji, digoncang-goncang, kemudian mencatat sesuatu di dalam buku catatan dibawanya. Berjam-jam lamanya Profesor itu melakukan kajian dengan tekun sekali. Pendayung sampan mendongak ke langit, memandang pada awan yang mula berarak kelabu. Dalam hati dia berkata “Hmm..tak lama hujan lebat akan turun..”

“OK semua sudah siap mari kita balik.” Lantas pendayung itu memusingkan sampannya dan mula mendayung ke arah pantai. Dalam perjalanan itu baru Profesor itu membuka mulut menegur pendayung sampan.

“Dah lama kamu mendayung sampan?” Tanya Profesor kepada pendayung sampan. “Hmm..hampir seumur hidupku,” jawab si pendayung ringkas.

“Seumur hidup kamu? Jadi kamu tidak tahu apa-apa selain mendayung sampan?” tanya Profesor itu lagi.

“Ya..”jawab pendayung sampan dengan ringkas.

Profesor belum berpuas hati dengan jawapan pendayung tua itu. “Kamu tahu Geografi?” Si pendayung menggeleng..

“Kalau begitu kamu hilang 25% dari usia hidup kamu.” “Kamu tahu Biologi?”tanya Profesor itu lagi. Pendayung sampan itu menggeleng lagi.

“Kasihan kamu telah kehilangan 50% dari usia kamu.”

“Kamu tahu Fizik?” Profesor itu masih bertanya. Seperti tadi pendayung sampan itu hanya menggeleng.

“Sungguh kasihan kalau begitu kamu telah kehilangan 75% usia kamu.Malang sungguh nasib kamu semuanya tidak tahu. Seluruh hidup kamu hanya dihabiskan dengan sampan,tak ada gunanya lagi,” Profesor itu mengejek dan berkata dengan angkuh setelah merasakan dirinya yang terhebat. Pendayung sampan hanya mendiamkan diri.

Selang beberapa minit kemudian hujan turun dengan lebat, tiba-tiba ombak besar datang melanda. Sampan yang mereka naiki terbalik. Profesor dan pendayung sampan terpelanting. Sempat pula pendayung itu bertanya, “Kamu tahu berenang?” Profesor hanya menggeleng.

“Sayang sekali kamu telah kehilangan 100% nyawa kamu.” Kata pendayung itu sambil berenang ke pantai meninggalkan Profesor yang angkuh.

hanya sebuah KOIN PENYOK

Seorang pria berjalan tak tentu arah dengan rasa putus asa. Kondisi keuangan keluarganya morat-marit. Saat menyusuri jalanan sepi, kakinya terantuk sesuatu. Ia membungkuk dan menggerutu kecewa. “ahhh, hanya sebuah koin kuno yang sudah penyok.” Meskipun begitu ia membawa koin itu ke bank.

“Sebaiknya koin in dibawa ke kolektor uang kuno,” kata teller itu memberi saran. Pria itu membawa koinnya ke kolektor. Beruntung sekali, koinnya dihargai 30 dollar.

Pria itu begitu senang. Saat melewati toko perkakas, dilihatnya beberapa lembar kayu obral. Dia pun membeli kayu seharga 30 dollar untuk membuat rak bagi istrinya. Dia memanggul kayu tersebut dan beranjak pulang.

Di tengah perjalanan dia melewati bengkel pembuat meubel. Mata pemilik bengkel tertuju pada kayu bermutu yang dipanggul oleh pria itu. Pemilik meubel menawarkan lemari seharga 100 dollar untuk menukar kayu itu. Setelah setuju, dia meminjam gerobak untuk membawa pulang lemari itu.

Di tengah perjalanan dia melewati perumahan baru. Seorang wanita melihat lemari yg indah itu dan menawarnya 200 dollar. Pria itu ragu-ragu. Si wanita menaikkan tawarannya menjadi 250 dollar. Pria itupun setuju dan mengembalikan gerobaknya.

Saat sampai di pintu desa, dia ingin memastikan uangnya. Ia merogoh sakunya dan menghitung lembaran bernilai 250 dollar. Tiba-tiba seorang perampok keluar dari semak-semak, mengacungkan belati, merampas uang itu, lalu kabur.

Istrinya kebetulan melihat dan berlari mendekati suaminya sambil bertanya, “Apa yg terjadi? Engkau baik-baik saja kan? Apa yang diambil oleh perampok tadi?”

Lelaki itu mengangkat bahunya dan berkata, “Oh, bukan apa-apa. Hanya sebuah koin penyok yang kutemukan tadi pagi”.

Bila kita sadar kita tak pernah memiliki apapun, kita tidak harus tenggelam dalam kepedihan yang berlebihan? Sebaliknya, kita seharusnya bersyukur atas segala karunia hidup yang telah Tuhan berikan pada kita, karena sesungguhnya ketika kita datang ke dunia dan kelak ketika kita pergi meninggalkan dunia ini, kita tidak membawa apa-apa.

Everything that we have come from God – that’s not ours – don’t do like we own it.
God blesses us

faithfully

tonight i saw a shooting star
made me wonder where you are
for years I have been dreaming of you,
and I wonder if you’re thinking of me too
in this world of cheap romance
and love that only fades after the dance
they say that Im a fool to wait for something more
how can I really love someone I’ve never seen before?
but I have longed for true love every day that I have lived
and I know real love is all about learning how to give
so I pray that God will bring you to me
and I pray you’ll find me waiting faithfully
faithfully, I am yours
from now until forever
faithfully I will write,
write you a love song with my life
cause this kind of love’s worth waiting for
no matter how long it takes
i am yours
faithfully
