The Magic Paintbrush

Everyday Ho, a poor boy looked after a rich farmer’s cattle. He took hay to the field. The farmer did not pay him much. Ho had only dry bread to eat. One day, a very thin, old man came up the lane. He looked hungry. Ho gave his bread to the man. He said, “Sir, take this!”

“Thank You!” said the old man. He was very happy with the poor boy’s behavior. So, he gave him a gift. It was a golden paintbrush. Ho made paints from plants, berries, and mud. “What shall I paint?” thought Ho. He began to paint some hay. The hay became real. “This is a magic paintbrush,” Ho wondered. 

 The next day while he was at work, the sun was too hot. The stream was dry. So, Ho painted a blue stream. The stream became real! Now the people and the animals had water to drink. The rich farmer had lots of food to eat. But the children and workers were hungry. Ho painted lots of food and it became real once again. Ho painted lots of things for the people. All of them became real. He painted a wheel, a bucket, and some clothes.

The rich farmer wanted the magic paintbrush. He took Ho to the jail and took the magic paintbrush from him. The farmer was greedy. He painted gold, but the gold did not become real. “Oi, you! The paintbrush does not work for me. Paint me a mountain of gold,” ordered the farmer.

Ho painted the mountain of gold. He painted a blue sea all around it. The gold mountain and the sea became real. The farmer was angry. “I cannot swim! Why did you paint the sea?” he shouted. “I’ll paint a ship for you!” said Ho. The ship became real. The farmer set off in the ship.

“When I get back, you will paint everything I want. The world will be mine!” he laughed. But Ho painted a gale. The gale became real. It took the farmer far, far away. As Ho returned to the farm, he painted things for those people who were kind and good to others. The rich farmer has never seen again.

"When You Believe"
Mariah Carey

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seemed like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full, I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fears
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see your way clear through the rain
A small, but still, resilient voice
Says help is very near
