From time to time we like to share a humorous story or joke, or whatever. Our good friend Mike Nelson sent the following to us, and while it is not very “theological” I thought it would be a good “comic relief” so, enjoy!

He was a  widower and she a widow.  They had known each other for  a number of years being high school classmates & having  attended class reunions in the past without  fail.

This  60th anniversary of their class, the widower & the widow  made a foursome with two other singles.  They had a  wonderful evening, their spirits high.  The widower  throwing admiring glances across the table.  The widow  smiling coyly back at him.  Finally, he picked up  courage to ask her, “Will you marry  me?”

After  about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered,  “Yes,… yes I  will!”

The  evening ended on a happy note for the widower.  But the  next morning he was troubled.  Did she say Yes or did  she say No?
He couldn’t remember.  Try as he  would, he just could not  recall.
       He went  over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind  was blank.  He remembered asking the question but for  the life of him he could not recall her response.  With  fear & trepidation he picked up the phone & called  her.

First, he explained that he couldn’t remember  as well as he used to.  Then he reviewed the past  evening.  As he gained a little more courage he then  inquired of her.  “When I asked if you would marry me,  did you say Yes or did you say  No?

“Why  you silly man, I said Yes.  Yes I will.  And I  meant it with all my  heart.”

The  widower was delighted.  He felt his heart skip a  beat.

Then  she continued. “And I am so glad you called because I  couldn’t remember who asked  me!
