There was once a man and woman who had been married for more than
60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything.
They kept no secrets from each other except that the old woman had a
shoebox in the top of her closet that she cautioned her husband never to
open or ask her about. For all of these years, he had never thought about
the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor
said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the
little
old man took down the shoebox and took it to his wife's bedside. She
agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When
he opened it, he found two crocheted doilies and a stack of money
totaling $25,000. He asked her about the contents. "When we were to
be married, " she said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a happy
marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with
you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doily." The little old man
was so moved, he had to fight back tears. Only two precious doilies
were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those
years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness. "Honey," he
said "that explains the doilies, but what about all of this money? Where
did it come from?" "Oh," she said, "that's the money I made from selling
the doilies.
A PRAYER....
Dear Lord,
I pray for Wisdom to understand my man;
Love to forgive him;
And Patience for his moods.
Because Lord, if I pray for Strength,
I'll beat him to death.
AMEN
