Greetings my Dearest Sisters and Brothers, and welcome again to Church Within's Story of the Week ["SOW Seeds”].

I don't often use Jokes as the Story of the Week, but this one was just Too Cute… and while I'd be hard pressed to adequately describe exactly what I found to be Spiritual about it, it Did strike me as having a pretty good underlying Spiritual Message. I guess I'd classify it as sort of a Humor Parable…

This week's SOW Seeds Story, contributed by: Rev. Angus Bowen

Story of the Week
“The Understanding Wife” - (Humor)
(Author Unknown)

Wally wakes up at home with a huge hangover.

He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table. He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed.
Wally looks around the room and sees that it is in a perfect order, spotless, clean. So is the rest of the house.
  He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table,  "Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love you." So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper.
His son is also at the table, eating. Wally asks,  "Son, what happened last night?" His son says,  "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."
Confused, Wally asks,  "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"

"Oh that!" His son replies, "Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off you said, Lady leave me alone, I'm married!"

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        Thank You once again for Humor. It is a Precious and Healing Gift who's True Value is all too often overlooked.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
