After she woke up, a woman told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine’s Day. What do you think it means?”
“You’ll know tonight,” he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it to find a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams.”
A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor’s office. After the check-up the doctor took the wife aside and said, “If you don’t do the following, your husband will surely die.”
1. “Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast and send him off to work in a good mood.”
2. “At lunch time, make him a warm, nutritious meal and put him in a good frame of mind before he goes back to work.”
3. “For dinner, fix an especially nice meal and don’t burden him with household chores.”
On the way home, the husband asked his wife what the doctor had said. She replied, “You’re going to die.”
What NOT To Give Her For Valentine’s Day
A box of chocolates, clumsily rearranged in an attempt to hide the fact you ate all the caramel ones.
Any food item with the words “diet,” “light,” or “high fiber” on the label.
Flowers from a hospital’s gift shop – or worse, a mortuary’s.
A gift certificate.
Anything you could have bought at the gas station mini-mart on the way over, even if you didn’t.
An apologetic look and the words “That was today?”
Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart.
The Heart That Prays
In cloistered stillness, or in crowded ways,
God breathes His nearness to the heart that prays.
His listening love flows in with calm, sweet power
To heal life’s hurts and light the troubled hour.
The heart that prays soars high on strong, glad wings,
And finds repose beyond earth’s rending things.
