An artist who had painted many pictures of greatbeauty found that he had not yet painted the one"real " picture.
In his search along a dusty road, he met an agedpriest who asked him where he was going .
"I do not know, " said the artist, "I want to paint the most beautiful thing in the world . Perhapsyou can direct me to it. "
"How simple, " replied the priest, "in any church or creed, you will find it——"faith" is the mostbeautiful thing in the world. "
The artist traveled on . Later , he met a young bride who told him that the most beautifu thingin the world is :"love". "love" makes the world go round.
I builds poverty into riches. sweetens tears and makes much of little . Without love there is nobeauty.
Still the artist continued his search and met a weary soldier.
The artist asked him the same question and the soldier answered, "Peace" is the most beautifulthing in the world.
War is ugly and wherever you find peace you’ll find beauty, faith and love.
"How can I paint them- Faith, Love and Peace?" thought the artist.
As he resumed his walk, his mind wondered on the “real ”picture he hoped to paint.He wassurprised that without thinking where he was going,he had reached his familiar surrounding.
As he entered the doorway,light glistened in his eyes and he realized thet his search was over.
In the faces of his wife and children,he saw love and Faith."Not a minute passed by thet ourchildren and l hod not thought of you.
We prayed that you would return to us safely,"his wife said as they embraced him.He sat on hispavorite old chair and hia heart was at peace.
The artist painted the most beautiful thing in the wold and called it"HOME".
