The secret of a happy marriage

Shoe box confession - prayer for understanding



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,
and 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
that 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 precious 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.”




Patience 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 know how to crochet.
