Once upon a time Wayne and Mary were in the Church Wayne grew up in. Wayne was trying to learn to love these nasty people. As usual being a Baptist Church there was a building program started. The church leaders hired a Building Program Company to manage all the collecting of commitments to the building fund. There was glossy brochures, there was guilt manipulation, ending with a banquet down town. Wayne and Mary invited Velda and her hubby to ride with him so they would have some company. "They are going to feed us rubber chicken and try to pick our pockets." Wayne said. "Oh no, they really want us to be in a good mood. It will be something really good." said Velda. Wayne and Mary laughed and laughed when they saw Velda's face when the entree was put down in front of her. "How did you know?" she said.

This is where the beginning starts. The whole point of the story. In the church was a young seminary student with his wife and child. The church employed him to handle an outreach program, an apartment ministry. Across the street from the church was a huge apartment complex full of poor people. The young student, I say that but he was over thirty, held church for the poor in the reckroom because the people didn't really want to come to the church. How does all this relate? The first speaker at the banquet was the young student. He gave his pitch, "give until it hurts". He explained that he had sold his second car, his wife's car, and given the money to the building fund. Everyone was impressed except for Wayne and Mary. We were shocked and full of fear.

Most people don't understand what it means to fear God and still approach Him like a little child. It means that there are certain things you see others do that you know in your heart, if you were to do, you better start running. God would be coming after you lighting bolts blazing.

Wayne and Mary were not surprised when they both got a message from God, "Go talk about marriage with Meathead." (paraphrased of course)
We called him up and made an appointment. He had a small office at the complex. We introduced ourselves and started telling our story about marriage, how we thought that we had made it ten years because we knew that we could get a divorce and so we worked on our relationship all the time. I guess he thought we had come to him for marriage counseling. He smiled, he looked like he was listening. After about 30 minuets he stood up and thanked us for coming.

About a week later, his wife had had enough. She packed up his kid, got a lawyer and served him with papers. The whole church was shocked, it was a scandal that a woman would rebel against God in that way. Yes, I agree with you, it wasn't her fault at all. I walked up to him after church and asked "Didn't you remember what we told you?" "About what?" he said "I don't remember talking to you at all."

Isn't that how it is. Well I don't know about you, but that is how it is with me. When someone is deft and blind you have a hard time communicating with him or her. I have learned just to listen to God and do what He says and watch what happens. Last I heard the guy's wife had taken up with a roughneck and moved to El Passo, and taking his kid with her. I leave it to you to figure out what the point of this story is. If it makes you give your significant other an extra hug then you got it.


The End.

The researchers are working overtime of the mechanics and chemical makeup of marriage.

Quote:From an evolutionary perspective, that mind-altering joy of romance ensures that humans not only will want to reproduce, but also stick around long enough to rear a child. For that reason, UCLA psychologist Martie Haselton, who studies our primal compulsions to mate, sterilely refers to love as a "commitment device," reinforced by natural selection to direct our attention toward hearth and home [source: Zimmer]. In slightly sweeter terms, the human brain -- thanks to natural selection -- processes romance like a box of chocolate.

Very good article and worth a read.
