Trouble Tree


I hired a plumber to help me restore an old farmhouse, and after he had just finished a rough

first day on the job, a flat tire made him lose an hour of work & his electric drill quit, his ancient

one ton truck refused to start. As I drove him home, he sat in stony silence.




On arriving he invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he

paused briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands. Upon

opening the door he had undergone an amazing transformation. His tanned face was

wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss.




Afterward he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity got the better of me.

I asked him about what I had seen him do at the little tree.






"Oh, that's my trouble tree," he replied. "I know I can't help having troubles on the job, but one

thing's for sure, those troubles don't belong in the house with my wife and the children. So I

just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of

them. Then in the morning I pick them up again."
Funny thing is," he smiled", when I come out

in the morning to pick them up, there aren't nearly as many as I remember hanging up the

night before."
