A True Story from my book Rescue the Stories Book Two
Marie’s husband was a hard worker, and he had done his best
to scratch out a living on their Tennessee
farm.Even in those days times were
tough for a large family.
When the husband received an offer from a neighbor to
purchase their Tennessee place, it seemed like
a good time to pull up stakes and move to California.
Desiring to assist his daughter and his nine grandchildren,
Marie’s dad drove his car to Tennessee to help
their family make the move to California.Arranging a house for them he had also
secured work for the husband at the Auto Wrecking Yard.
Even though we could hardly afford to do so, Robert and I
took several boxes of groceries to their place to help stock their
cupboards.The boxes included canned
goods, meat, some staples and a box of oranges for the kids.
We were horrified when the older kids instead of enjoying
the fresh fruit, began to have a throwing fight with each other.Quickly I managed to stop all the throwing
and then it was needful to give them a lesson on how to eat an orange and about
the value of food.
Early in the morning a few days later, I received a
telephone call from the oldest daughter.She spoke anxiously and requested that I please come and take her mother
to the doctor.I asked if her mother was
hurt, and she said, “No, but Mama has an appointment.”
When I arrived, there was Marie waiting and smiling.Entering my car, she asked me to please take
her to the local grammar school because today they are giving away free
clothing.Surprised, I asked, “What
about the Doctor?” With out missing a
beat, she stated, “Oh I knew you might not come just to help me get some
clothes for the kids unless we said it was for the Doctor.”
It seemed that the school had certain days when those with a
need could come and get clothing, and I saw nothing wrong with that.However I had to be bold and tell Marie, that
she had lied to me, and this time I would take her, but she had betrayed my
trust, and today would be my last trip to help her.There are times when you can only go so far.
It is sad to say, that this woman was a habitual liar.She could not even open her mouth to speak -
- with out telling a lie.Even more
depressing was the fact that she was also training her children to become
I am reminded that the Bible says that LIES are an
abomination to God.It also states that
all liars have a very hot place to go to.After all Satan is the father of lies and we do not want to associate
with him.May I also say, politicians,
and leaders who lie are not good people to follow.
My mother taught us as children to tell the truth, and we
did a reasonably good job of truth telling.I have tried to impress on our children that Truth is always best and a
Liar will always be found out.
Jesus told us that He was the Way the Truth and the
Life.May we ever seek His Truth!
