Changing The Spouse - by A.B.King



   Llyod and Jessica where a nice Christian couple. They had just newly given their hearts Christ a few days ago and so they still had a great deal to learn.

   Llyod however, had a problem that greatly disturbed his wife. The problem was that Llyod was selfish and often times he didn’t consider how his wife felt before he did things.Jessica kept criticizing Llyod about it but Llyod kept saying it wasn’t true, that he wasn’t selfish.

   The more Jessica spoke, the more Llyod got pissed off and therefore acted even more inconsiderate of his wife’s feelings.

   This went on to the point where they began to look like that couple that is just a week away from getting a divorce.

    Jessica didn’t know what to do. She got on her knees and prayed to God for help.

   While praying she felt like if God was telling her to get more active in the church. She wondered how that would help but she decided to do it anyway.

   Jessica joined one of the women’s groups in her church and she became really close to some of the women in the group. They started coming to her house and she started going to theirs. She became real friends with them and one day she told them about the problem that she was having with Llyod, her husband.

   They told her that she is approaching the problem wrongly, that she should not just point out his flaw and leave at that but instead she should point out all the great stuff about him that she likes and then also tell him that he would be much better if he would change in these other areas; and then she can point out the areas in which she wants him to change.

   Jessica didn’t quite know about the idea, but she decided to give it a go. From that day onwards she started pointing out the good things she loved about her husband and telling him the areas that if he improved in he would truly become more incredible.

   Llyod started warming up to Jessica and a new life swept into their marriage. Soon, like a wife asks her husband if a dress looks good on her or if she should change it; Llyod started coming to his wife to ask for which attitude adjustments he should make and what she thinks about certain things he thinks or plans to do.

   Jessica was very happy about what God had done in her marriage through her new church friends.

   She now knew that the problem was not just her husband changing, but she too needed to change by getting to know and also use the right way to bring out the best in her spouse instead of criticizing her spouse.

   Criticizing your spouse often gets you nowhere but to the divorce office. Aim to bring out the best in your spouse instead of reminding your spouse of their flaws and only talking about the worst in your spouse.

The End.

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/


The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
