A WOMAN’S PARABLE….

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river.

When she cried out, the Lord appeared & asked, “My dear child, why are you crying?”

The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water & that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.

The Lord dipped His hand into the water & pulled up a golden thimble set with pearls.

“Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked.

The seamstress replied, “No.”

The Lord again dipped his hand into the river. He held out a silver thimble ringed with sapphires.

“Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked.

Again, the seamstress replied, “No.”

The Lord reached down again & came up with a leather thimble.

“Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked.

The seamstress replied, “Yes”

The Lord was pleased with the woman’s honesty & gave her all three thimbles to keep & the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the river bank & her husband fell into the river & disappeared under the water.

When she cried out, the Lord again appeared & asked her, “Why are you crying?”

“Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!”

The Lord went down into the water & came up with Mel Gibson.

“Is this your husband?” the Lord asked.

“Yes-Oh yes!,” cried the seamstress.

The Lord was furious. “You lied! That is not true!”

The seamstress replied, “Oh, forgive me, my Lord.

It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said ‘no’ to Mel Gibson, you would have come up with Tom Cruise. Then if I said ‘no’ to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said ‘yes,’ you would have given me all three. Lord, I’m not in the best of health & would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so that is why I said ‘yes’ to Mel Gibson.”

And so the Lord let her keep him.

The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it’s for a good & honourable reason & in the best interest of others.

That’s our story & we’re sticking to it.
