My Husband's First Wife

Every now and then, my husband does something just to make me laugh. I came home from work the other day to find the house empty and this laying in my bed. 

I know the photo is not the best. That is a cantalope with a face drawn on it. The hair is a rag dog toy. 

I have to admit, it did make me laugh after I got over the shock of finding another person in my bed. At least she loves the Word!

The comments on facebook were very funny concerning her skin, her shape and her obvious study of the Word.  Then someone made a comment about this being my husband's first wife. The cantalope head kind of could remind you of those shrunken heads you see come out of remote places. 

Then I thought to myself.  My husband's first wife really is dead.  I wasn't a believer when I married my husband. When I think back over my life, it doesn't even seem to me that it began until I met Christ on a personal level. That person I was before Christ seems like a stranger to me. And if I remember correctly, she was just as lifeless, fake, and flat as this lady that I found in my bed.  She was selfish, childish, and irrational. (I had better hair though!) I'm not perfect by any means but I have to say.....

What a difference Christ makes in a life. For that I am so thankful.
