A Covert Blessing

Seorang pemuda sedang bersiap-siap untuk lulus kuliah.
Sudah berbulan-bulan dia mengagumi mobil sport indah di sebuah dealer showroom, dan mengetahui ayahnya juga bisa membelinya, dia telah bilang kepada ayahnya bahwa itu yang diinginkannya.
A young boy were prepared himself for his graduation day.
It’s about months he admired a beautiful sport car in a showroom dealer. He knew that his father were able to buy him one, so he told his father about what he wanted for his graduation present.
Wisuda semakin dekat, pemuda itupun menunggu tanda-tanda bahwa ayahnya telah membeli mobil yang diinginkannya. Akhirnya, di hari kelulusannya di pagi hari ayahnya memanggil dia ke ruang pribadinya. Ayahnya mengatakan kepadanya betapa bangganya ia memiliki anak yang pandai, dan mengatakan kepadanya betapa ia mencintainya. Diapun kemudian menyerahkan sebuah kotak hadiah yang dibungkus indah ke anaknya.
It was closed to that day, and he was waiting for the sign that his father would give him that car. Finally, on that graduation day, his father called him to his private room in the morning. His father told him that he proud of him and loved him so. Then he gave a him a beautiful present.
Penasaran, dengan segera anak muda tersebut membuka kotak itu dan dengan sangat kecewa menemukan sebuah kitab suci yang terikat dengan indah. Anak muda tersebut pun marah, ia mengangkat suaranya pada ayahnya dan berkata, “Dengan semua uang yang Ayah miliki, Ayah cuma memberi saya sebuah kitab suci” dan dengan segera pergi keluar rumah, meninggalkan kitab suci tersebut.
He was curious, then he opened the gift quickly. He was so disappointed when he found a bible as his present. He became angry, said: “With all of your money and you only give me a bible” and he left his father with the bible.

Bertahun-tahun berlalu dan pemuda itu sangat berhasil dalam bisnis.
Dia memiliki rumah yang indah dan keluarga yang luar biasa, tetapi baru disadarinya bahwa Ayahnya sudah sangat tua, dan berpikir mungkin dia harus pergi menjenguk dia. Dia belum pernah melihatnya lagi sejak hari kelulusan.
Years passed and this young man became a successful man in his business.
He had a beautiful house and extraordinary family, but he just realize that his father was very old, and he decided to visited him because he never met his father since he left on that graduatin day.
Sebelum ia bisa mengatur semuanya, ia menerima sebuah telegram mengatakan bahwa ayahnya sudah meninggal dan mewariskan semua harta miliknya kepada putranya.
Before he could arranged everything, he received a telegram said that his father was passed away and gave him all his property to his son.
Anaknya diminta untuk segera pulang dan mengurus semuanya. Ketika ia tiba di rumah ayahnya, tiba-tiba kesedihan dan penyesalan mengisi hatinya.
They asked him to come home soon and arranged everything. When he in his father house, suddenly he felt so sad and sorry for what he’d done.
Ia mulai mencari surat-surat penting ayahnya dan melihat kitab suci yang masih baru, sama seperti yang dia tinggalkan tahun lalu. Dengan air mata, ia membuka kitab suci tersebut dan mulai membalik halaman.
He started to found all his father’s important letters and found a new bible, as he left years ago. He cried, opened the bible and reversing page by page.
Saat ia sedang membaca bagian dari kitab suci tersebut, sebuah kunci mobil terjatuh dari sebuah amplop
ditempel di belakang kitab suci tersebut.
When he red a part of that bible, a key car felt down from an envelope in the back of it.
Ditag dengan nama dealer, dealer yang sama yang menjual mobil sport yang diinginkannya. Pada tag itu tertulis tanggal lulus, dan kata… DIBAYAR LUNAS.
There’s a tag said graduation date, and PAID IN FULL.

~ How many times we throw away our gifts and live in anger when the present is not wrapped as what we want it to be? ~
