This story was told by a loving wife........
At a church service, the pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would
like to express praise for answered prayers.
Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two
months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum
was completely crushed.
The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him." You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.
"Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move
caused him terrible pain.
" We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out
they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and
wrap wire around it to hold it in place."
Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as
they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom.
"Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out of
the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover
All the men sighed with unified relief. The pastor rose and tentatively
asked if anyone else had something to say.
A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He said, "I'm Tom Smith."
The entire congregation held its breath.
I just want to tell my wife the word is sternum.
