WIVES LIVES: TALES FROM THE PARSONAGE
"Strike three! You have earned a retaliation! But not today, not tomorrow, maybe next day or next month, but when and where you least expect it, in a way you'll never expect. IT WILL HAPPEN!"
Can you imagine a minister's wife talking to her son in this fashion? But happen it did! ("From Pranks in the Parsonage")
How about this argument with God - "Filled with anger and pain, with tears running down my face, I demanded to know 'WHY'. Why didn't God protect her? I had trusted Him to do so. Why did He bring her into my life, just to have her die an awful death? She was so perfect and so innocent, and I loved her. Was it too much to ask? WHY?".... ("What I learned from a Robin")
Read about a miracle in "The Dove From Heaven" - "As the congregation began to sing verse four of "All Creatures That Have Breath and Motion, That Throng the Earth, the Sea, the Sky," a beautiful dove flew into the church through the open window. The dove glided above the choir member heads, over the congregation, and landed in the front of the church on the communion rail. At That point, everything in the service stopped as people were absolutely stunned."
Like mysteries? Read "Murder by Mail" - "My husband and I strained to hear as the outer "blood draped" paper was torn from the box, then the duct tape. We heard the box being torn open, and "bloody" packages being removed one by one. The animal came last. Silence as the animal "cage" was slowly opened. Not knowing what to expect. Was it dead ? Was it alive?"
Thinking about marrying a minister? Be sure to read "Sem Wives" and "I Want to Go Home"
