The Shoe Box...Funny!

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I felt led to share this story... In JESUS NAME!!! LOL!!! Sister's this is wisdom here! I hope we all can recall this story the next time we feel a "Heated Discussion" coming on. LOL!! GOD bless you all!! Enjoy!

A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years.
They had shared everything. They had talked about everything.
They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little
old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had
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 shoe box 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 dolls
and a stack of money totaling $95,000.

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 doll.'
The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two
recious dolls 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 doll, but what about all of this money?
Where did it come from?'

'Oh,' she said, 'that's the money I made from selling the dolls.'


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, because I don't have time to crochet.
