Title: “Learning How To Minister To Your Wife”

“You know Dear,” she says, “As I Look into the Mirror I see an Old Woman. My Face is all Wrinkled, my Hair is Grey, my Shoulders are Hunched over, I’ve got Fat Legs, & my Arms are Flabby.”
She turns to her Husband & says, “Tell me Something Positive, to make me Feel Better about Myself.” He Studies hard for a Moment, Thinking About what he can say.
He Looked at his Wife and in a Soft, Thoughtful Voice he said, “Well, there’s nothing wrong with your Eyesight.” Services for the Husband will be held Saturday Morning at 10:30, at Saint Elmo’s Memorial Chapel.
