LIVING PEACEFULLY? Get A Leg Up With This Blog

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peacefully with all men.  KJV Romans 12:18 

AN ANGRY MAN - How Do You Deal With Him?
Some people are just naturally angry.  Others can be sweet and let their sweetness turn sour.  And, then, ever so rarely, there are people like me, MEEK, LOWLY AND HUMBLE, SWEET, GENTLE AND KIND!  Un Huh.  Just ask me nicely and I'll tell you.

Meek, Lowly and Humble, Sweet, Gentle and Kind on my 80th birthday
All too often, folks endure great upheavals in their lives and can't even recall what started the fight in the first place.  To help you avoid having such an experience in your life, I'll describe how some fights got started.

One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as
a Christmas gift.  The next year, I didn't buy her a gift.
"When she asked me why, I replied,
"Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year.
AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED

I took my wife to a restaurant.
The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.
"I'll have the rump steak, rare, please."
He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow.....?"
"Nah, she can order for herself."
AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED

LOVE THOSE HIGH SCHOOL REUNIONS
My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school
reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his
drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.

I asked her, "Do you know him?"

"Yes", she sighed,
"He's my old boyfriend.  I understand he took to drinking
right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he
hasn't been sober since."

"My God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?"
AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED

Our 60th Reunion
AND THAT'S HOW THE FIGHT GOT STARTED
My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.
She asked, "What's on TV?"
I said, "Dust."
AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED

Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my
 lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage.  I hooked the
boat up to the van and proceeded to back out into a torrential
downpour.  The wind was blowing 50MPH, so I pulled back into the
garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather
would be bad all day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back
into bed.  i cuddled up to my wife's back; now with a different
anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is
terrible."

My loving wife of 5 years replied, "And, can you believe my
stupid hus band is out fishing in that?"
AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming
anniversary.

She said, "Iwant something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in
about 3 seconds."

I bought her a bathroom scale.
AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED

My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,
"I feel horrible; I really need you you to pay me a compliment."

I replied, "Your eyesights absolutely perfect."
AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED

And, now you know!

Good luck living in peace as far as is possible.

You might try sending your wife some flowers.

AND THATS HOW THE FIGHT STARTED!

God bless you and  yours.
