Night Driver

 

   Have you heard about the elderly man who decided in his late years of life he needed to get married? Well as the story goes, one of his close friends allowed his curiosity to get the best of him as to why at his age to become a married man and give up all his freedom. 

   “Why? Why now, can she cook?” His friend asked? “Heavens no! She hasn’t cooked in years.” “Well, is she a real thing of beauty, I mean, is she pretty? Is that the real reason you married her? No on the contrary, she’s quite plain and ordinary.”

   Pressed for an answer the friend could accept, he asked, she must be real romantic and affectionate? “No, no not at all, however I will say this, she is very kind. She sits in her rocking chair over there, and I sit in mine and the time just passes by.

   The friend said, “Well, I’m completely and totally confused. You married her and you appear to be very happy so why did you marry this lady at all?” The old man leaned over and said in a voice just above a whisper and said: “Because she can drive at night.”

    The truth of the matter is that we all need someone, someone very, very special in our lives who can give us that plain and simple support. The good news is that we don’t have to wait till we grow old to look for that special someone.

   Matthew 12, makes us aware of the decree Jesus made when He said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you restTake My yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” vv28&29. Courage is said to be fear that has said its prayers.
