We all need a tree

  1. 1. We all need a treeI hired a plumber to help me restore an old farmhouse, and after he had justfinished a rough first day on the job: a flat tire made him lose an hour of work, hiselectric drill quit and his ancient one ton truck refused to start.While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence. On arriving, he invited me in tomeet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused briefly at a smalltree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands.When opening the door he underwent an amazing transformation.. His face waswreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss.Afterward he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity got thebetter of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do earlier."Oh, thats my trouble tree," he replied "I know I cant help having troubles on thejob, but one things for sure, those troubles dont belong in the house with my wifeand the children... So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I comehome and ask God to take care of them. Then in the morning I pick them upagain." "Funny thing is," he smiled," when I come out in the morning to pick em up,there arent nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before."May God Almighty Bless You With Health, Happiness and Prosperity Always.
