Once upon a mountain top, three little trees stood and dreamed ofwhat they wanted to become when they grew up. The first little treelooked up at the stars and said: "I want to hold treasure. I want to becovered with gold and filled with precious stones. I'll be the mostbeautiful treasure chest in the world!"
The second little tree looked out at the small stream trickling byon it's way to the ocean. "I want to be traveling mighty waters andcarrying powerful kings. I'll be the strongest ship in the world!"
The third little tree looked down into the valley below where busymen and women worked in a busy town. "I don't want to leave themountain top at all. I want to grow so tall that when people stop tolook at me, they'll raise their eyes to heaven and think of God. I willbe the tallest tree in the world."
Years passed. The rain came, the sun shone, and the little treesgrew tall. One day three woodcutters climbed the mountain. The firstwoodcutter looked at the first tree and said, "This tree is beautiful.It is perfect for me." With a swoop of his shining ax, the first treefell. "Now I shall be made into a beautiful chest, I shall holdwonderful treasure!" The first tree said.
The second woodcutter looked at the second tree and said, "This treeis strong. It is perfect for me." With a swoop of his shining ax, thesecond tree fell. "Now I shall sail mighty waters!" thought the secondtree. "I shall be a strong ship for mighty kings!"
The third tree felt her heart sink when the last woodcutter lookedher way. She stood straight and tall and pointed bravely to heaven. Butthe woodcutter looked up. "Any kind of tree will do for me." Hemuttered. With a swoop of his shining ax the third tree fell.
The first tree rejoiced when the woodcutter brought her to acarpenter's shop. But the carpenter fashioned the tree into a feed boxfor animals. The once beautiful tree was not covered with gold, norwith treasure. She was coated with saw dust and filled with hay forhungry farm animals.
The second tree smiled when the woodcutter took her to a shipyard,but no mighty sailing ship was made that day. Instead the once strongtree was hammered and sawed into a simple fishing boat. She was toosmall and too weak to sail to an ocean, or even river; instead she wastaken to a little lake.
The third tree was confused when the woodcutter cut her into strongbeams and left her in a lumberyard. "What happened?" The once tall treewondered. "All I ever wanted was to stay on the mountain top and pointto God...
"Many days and nights passed. The three trees nearly forgot theirdreams. But one night, golden starlight poured over the first tree as ayoung woman placed her newborn baby in the feed box. "I wish I couldmake a cradle for him." Her husband whispered. The mother squeezed hishand and smiled as the starlight shone on the smooth and the sturdywood. "This manger is beautiful." She said. And suddenly the first treeknew he was holding the greatest treasure in the world.
One evening a tired traveler and his friends crowded into the oldfishing boat. The traveler fell asleep as the second tree quietlysailed out into the lake. Soon a thundering and thrashing storm arose.The little tree shuddered. She knew she did not have the strength tocarry so many passengers safely through with the wind and the rain. Thetired man awakened. He stood up, stretched out his hand, and said,"Peace." The storm stopped as quickly as it had begun. And suddenly thesecond tree knew he was carrying the king of heaven and earth.
One Friday morning, the third tree was startled when her beam wasYanked from the forgotten woodpile. She flinched as she was carriedthrough an angry jeering crowd. She shuddered when soldiers nailed aman's hands to her. She felt ugly and harsh and cruel. But on Sundaymorning, when the sun rose and the earth trembled with joy beneath her,the third tree knew that God's love had changed everything. It had madethe third tree strong. And Every time people thought of the third tree,they would think of God. That was better than being the tallest tree inthe world.
So next time you feel down because you didn't get what you want,just sit tight and be happy because God is thinking of something betterto give you.

译文:
从前,在一个小山顶上,有三棵小树,他们静静地站立在那里,并梦想着长大后的事情。

第一棵小树,仰望星空,他说:“我想拥有金银财宝。我要身披黄金,内盛宝石。我将是世界上最美丽的百宝箱。”

第二棵小树,看着蜿蜒地流向大海的小溪,“我想运载强大的君主,在激流中穿行。我将是世界上最强的船。”

第三棵小树,注视着山谷,在那里,人们在一个小镇上忙碌。“我一点都不想离开这个山顶。我想长高,当人们停下来看我的时候,他们会抬头看到天空,想到上帝。我将是世界上最高的树。”

许多年过去了。日出日落,雨下雨歇,小树们都长高了。有一天,三个伐木工爬上了山顶。第一个伐木工看着第一棵树说,“这棵树漂亮。我很喜欢。”他的利斧唰地砍向了小树,第一棵树倒下了。“我可能会被做成一个美丽的百宝箱,我要拥有奇珍异宝!”第一棵树说。

第二个伐木工看着第二棵树说,“这棵树结实。我很喜欢。”他的利斧唰地砍向了小树,第二棵树倒下了。“我要到激流中航行了!”第二棵树心想。“我会成为强大君王的船!”

当第三个伐木工注视自己的时候,第三棵树觉得自己的心脏在往下沉。她挺直了高高的身躯,勇敢地直至天空。但是,第三个伐木工向上看了以后喃喃低语道,“什么树对我来说都行。”他的利斧唰地砍向了小树,第三棵树倒下了。

当伐木工把第一棵树带到一个木匠铺子里时,她很高兴。但是木匠把这棵树做成了喂动物的食器。曾经美丽的树没有能够身披黄金,内藏珍宝。她被铺上锯末,肚子里装着饥饿农场动物们喜爱吃的干草。

当伐木工把第二棵树带到一个船坞时,她面带微笑,但是,那天没有强大的航船被造出来。曾经强壮的树被锤、被锯后,做成了一个简单的小渔船。她又小又弱,根本不能到海洋里航行;所以,她被带到了一个小湖里。

当伐木工把第三棵树砍成结实的梁柱,并放到木材场时,她很迷惑。“发生了什么事?”曾经很高的树疑惑了。“我只想呆在山顶,指向上帝……”

日日夜夜过去了。三棵树几乎忘掉了他们曾经的梦想。但是,一天晚上,一个年轻女人把她的新生婴儿放到了动物食槽里,金光开始照耀第一棵树。“我想给他做个摇篮。”她的丈夫耳语道。当星光在光滑的食槽里闪耀时,这个妈妈抓住他的手,笑了。“这个食槽很漂亮。”她说。猛然间,第一棵树意识到,他正拥抱着世界上最珍贵的财宝。

一个夜晚,筋疲力尽的旅人和他的朋友们挤进了这个老渔船。当第二棵树安静地驶向湖水,旅人睡着了。一会儿,响雷和大雨降临了。小树战栗了。她知道,自己没有能力让这么多的乘客安全地避过风雨。疲惫的人醒了。他站起来,伸出手说,“平静”。暴风雨马上停止了。猛然间,第二棵树意识到,他运载着的正是天空和大地之王。

一个星期五的早晨,第三棵树很震惊地发现,她的横梁正在被拉扯。当她被一群愤怒的人群运出来时,她很想退缩了。士兵们把一个男人的手钉到她身上时,她在战栗。她觉得很不体面,残酷无情。但是,星期六早晨,当太阳升起,大地因为欢呼而颤抖,第三棵树意识到,上帝的爱改变了一切。它让第三棵树强壮了。每一次,当人们想起第三棵树,他们就会想到上帝。这比成为世界上最高的树还要好。

所以,下一次,当你因为不能得到想得到的东西,而感觉意志消沉时,只须坐下感受幸福喜悦,因为上帝正在思考,给你更好的东西。
