Wife's prayer request

Thankful Wife

During the service, the pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express thanks for prayers which had been answered.

A lady stood up and came forward.

She said, 'I have a reason to thank the Lord. Two months ago, my husband, Jim, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him.'

You could hear an audible gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Jim experienced.

She continued, 'Jim was unable to hold me or the children and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation. They were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Jim's scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place.'

Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Jim.

She continued, 'Now, Jim is out of the hospital and the doctor's say, with time, his scrotum should recover completely.'

All the men sighed with relief. The pastor rose and tentatively and asked if any one else had anything to say.

A man rose and walked slowly to the podium.

He said, 'Hi, I'm Jim...... and I would like to tell my wife, the word is 'sternum.' '

Funniest one yet! Funny to me because my husband had open heart surgery and they stapled his sternum together, I have heard of word errors that caused removal of the wrong foot. Thanks for a laugh today.
