A wonderful message and thought of sharing…
“I hired a plumber to help me repairs at an old farmhouse. He already had a rough and tiresome day.
* a flat tire
* his electric drill fault
* his old car break down.
* his tiffin was spoilt
* he lost his wallet
* his bank was calling for loan repayments
In all the tension and stress he finished my repairs.
Since his car broke down, I drove him home. While I drove him home, he sat silently, but I could mark his agony and restlessness.
When the door opened, he was smiling and happy. In seconds he underwent an amazing transformation.
He hugged his two small children, gave his wife a kiss, laughed, and never even slightly make them feel the troubles that he had encountered that day.
I was astonished, aback and curious. Seeing my inquisitive eyes, he told me
“Oh, that’s my “Trouble Tree”, my best friend. My trouble carrier for the night”. He replied. “I know I can’t help having troubles on the job, but one thing’s for sure, those troubles don’t belong in the house with my wife and the children. So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of them.
Then in the morning I pick them up again.” He smiled and shared the secret that “When, I come out in the morning to pick them up, there are not nearly as many as I remember hanging there the night before !!”
Life may be a burden of worries, but there is a way to keep our loved ones untouched from these worries.
On many occasions, “Time is the best medicine”….!!
