Without enough water, flowers dry up and husbands wilt

by Roger Alford

A fellow went to the flower shop and asked for geraniums.

“I’m sorry, but we have sold out of geraniums,” the clerk said, “but we have our marigolds on sale if you’d like some of them.”

“No thank you,” the man said. “It was geraniums my wife asked me to water while she was gone.”

We’re all certain to forget things from time to time. That’s why we need reminders. The Apostle Peter did that for us in a letter he wrote long years ago:

“I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of a reminder, that you should remember the words spoken by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles. Know this first of all, that in the last days scoffers will come, following after their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.’” (2 Peter 3:1-4).The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.
