A Christian seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river. Her leather thimble fell into the river. When she cried, the Lord appeared, "My dear child, why are you crying?" The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband support their family. The Lord dipped into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires."Is this your thimble?" The seamstress honestly replied, "No." The Lord again dipped into the river and pulled out a golden thimble with rubies. "Is this your thimble?" The honest seamstress again replied, "No."
The Lord then pulled out her leather thimble."Is this your thimble ?" The seamstress replied, "Yes." The Lord was so pleased that he gave her all three thimbles. The seamstress went home happy.
Some years later, the same Christian seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank when he fell into the river and vanished. When she cried,the Lord appeared and asked,"Why are you crying?" "My husband has fallen into the river!" The Lord reached into the water and pulled out George Clooney. "Is this your husband?"
"Yes," cried the seam stress. The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is not true!" The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. But if I had said 'no' to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt.
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 and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to George Clooney.
So the Lord let her keep Clooney. The moral of this story:Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reasons, and in the best interest of others.
That's our story, and we're sticking to it.
