Saved By A Stranger - a Romantic Christian Short Story by A.B.King


   Freddie and Sarah where a young couple who had been married for 5 years. They loved each other dearly but they had a big misunderstanding between them right now. They just had a big fight and Freddie had made up his mind not to talk to Sarah.
   Freddie got on his smart phone, opened up his online blog application and then he started typing away. 
   He wrote:

   Hello Everybody,Can you believe the nonsense that my wife just said? She told me that Im wrong by not telling my friends about Jesus.What does that even mean?
   I am a good person. I am a good Christian. Now she is judging me and condemning me for not telling my friends about Jesus.
   Does she tell all her friends about Jesus and if she does, does that mean that I must too? or if she does that, those it make her a better person than me?
   She doesn’t understand that it is not so easy to just come out and preach to your friends like that. My friends are different from her friends. If she was in my work place she wouldn’t say what she said.
    In any case people, I’m not talking to my wife. This is more than giving her the silent treatment. She has really hurt my feelings.


Meanwhile, Sarah pulled out her tablet device and started typing:

   Hi Friends,I need you all to hold me and my husband up in prayer. There are somethings going on in our marriage right now. My husband doesn’t even want to talk to me. He is giving me the silent treatment.
   Please remember us in your prayers.
Freddie and Sarah went on with there day with Sarah hoping that Freddie would talk to her and Freddie hoping that his silence is killing her.

   Suddenly, Freddie received in e-mail alert on his cell phone. He opened up his cell phone to see. That someone had written a comment on his recent post. He clicked the link and the comment read:

Stranger’s Comment: Hi, You don’t know me but I’ve been following your blog for a while. I just read your post and I just saw your wife’s post on the same matter.
   I hate to see couples fight like this. I understand that you are both Christians, you guys should work out your problems in love as Christians.
   As Freddie read this post he grew angry and immediately started typing a response;


Freddie’s reply to Stranger’s Comment: Hey Stranger, You don’t know me. I don’t care how long you’ve followed me. You don’t know me. You don’t have any right to tell me or my wife how to live our lives. How dare you? Who do you think you are? You better not comment here again if you know what’s good for you. Mind your own business.
   Freddie sighed in anger and then he looked at his wife. She looked back at him with curiosity on her face. She was clearly also hoping that he would speak to her but he didn’t. He still wasn’t speaking to his wife so he couldn’t say anything. He decided to visit her blog to see what she wrote.
   Immediately after reading her blog, he received another e-mail alert and checked his mail only to find out that the stranger had just replied to the comment he told the stranger to not reply to. Oh! what kind of person is this that is disturbing him?
   Freddie decided to click the link to see what the stranger would say. Just because he would read it doesn’t mean that he would reply to it. Then, Freddie’s eyes rested on the reply;

Stranger’s reply to Freddie’s reply: I’m sorry Mr.Freddie, I didn’t mean to offend you. It is just that I’ve enjoyed your lovely posts about Jesus Christ for so long. This post caught me off guard. I’m sorry, my comment was a knee jerk reaction to the post that I saw. Next time I wouldn’t be so quick to respond without cooling down first.
   I really respect you. I only meant to say that I’m sure that your wife loves you and I’m sure that she means well. She only wants to make sure that your friends are Christians too and that they go to heaven too just like I know you would.
   I’m sure you won’t like it if your wife makes friends with non-Christians at her own work place, there are over a thousand ways that that could badly affect you if that happens.
   And I’m sure that if it was you who where in your friend’s shoes and you where the one that wasn’t born again and they were, I’m sure you would want them to share the gospel with you now that you know how glorious the precious gospel is?
   I don’t think your wife is judging or condemning you. She believes in you. She clearly believes in you because she believes that you can led them to Christ. And she clearly loves you because she posted a call to pray for you guys marriage on her blog. I bet she’s missing you right now and I bet you know it.
   I know that in some offices and secular environments it is not easy to represent Christ or preach the gospel but I believe in you and the bible tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us so I know that you can do it. I believe in you because Christ believes in you.
   But I’m sure that God would be pleased above all things if you start talking to your wife again. What’s more, I know you miss talking to your wife. 

   As soon as Freddie finished reading the comment he lifted up his eyes and fought back the tears. He looked at his wife and she saw the tears welling up in her eyes.
   He walked up to her and then fell on his knees before her.Sarah was still a bit confused.
   Suddenly, Freddie burst into tears. He couldn’t control himself. Then with his face squeezed together like that a little boy begging for his mother’s forgiveness he said, “I’m Sorry.”Freddie started to explain as he cried but his wife with tears now in her own eyes said, “SSHHhhh!!!”, and then she trapped her arms around him.
   Freddie never felt so fortunate and complete in his whole life.
   Later, he promised Sarah that he would never do anything as childish as giving her the silent treatment ever again.
   After treating his wife to a romantic dinner that evening, Freddie pulled out his phone and replied to the Stranger’s comment. He wrote:
Thank You I owe you more than you could ever possibly imagine.

The End.

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

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?/

Why You Should Share This Post:  Because unlike some people, we Love & Respect those who risk their lives for us everyday.

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:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
