The wives of two preachers,
Had a friendship that was unending.
Were sitting together as they worked –
Their husband’s clothes they were mending.
One said to the other, “My poor John
Is so discouraged with preaching.
He’s about ready to give it up –
There are no souls that he’s reaching.”
“He said nothing is going right –
No new faces does he ever see.
I expect that soon he’ll really resign –
But this is between you and me.”
After waiting a moment the other said,
“It’s different with my Bill.
He seems so enthusiastic,
Just to watch him gives me a thrill.
He’s praying about the building program –
He wants some more pews put in.
He’ll have to move a wall to do it,
And make a class room where a junk room had been.
He’s looking for Bible Class teachers
To teach the classes that are growing.
Offerings are up, souls are being saved –
The members’ faces are glowing.
A hushed silence fell as they continued
Their work, making each stitch so neat.
One was patching trouser knees,
The other her husband’s pants seat. [author unknown]

Have A Great Day!
