When our lawn mower broke and
wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I
always had something else to take care of first, the truck, the car, playing
golf - always something more important. Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point. When I arrived
home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a
tiny pair of sewing scissors. I summed up the situation in a few seconds and
without a word went into the house. I was gone for only a minute, and when I
emerged I handed her a toothbrush.
With a puzzled look she asked,
“What’s this for?”
“When you finish cutting the
grass, please sweep the driveway,” I replied with a straight face.
The doctors say I will walk
again, but I will likely always have a limp.
Seriously, communication between
husband and wife is a language of signals as well as words: miss the words or
the signals and life can become unpleasant.
How are communications in your
home? Far more often than not, the wife
is more concerned about communication than is her husband. Husband, if you think all is well with
communications in your home, you have probably missed the signals.
God’s Word has much to say about
communication in the home. Dr. Mark Lee
shares valuable, necessary insight on how to improve communications in your
family setting. His humorous style will
keep your attention, but the truths he conveys may be a marriage saver for you
or someone you care about. Whether you
are a husband or a wife (or hope to be in the future), why not make Course # 20800,
