two hearts become one in marriage The Title Of Today’s Love Story is: Trust On Trial It s written by: Alfred Benjamin King For the: 18th of November 2011 (Friday) For more Free Love Stories visit: www.thechristianbookcompany.com Trust On Trial Like a flower in spring, Love blossoms like a long awaited promise that completes our desires even to over flowing. But unlike a flower that fades away in winter, Love s beauty endures through every changing season. The rougher the weather is , the more beautiful it is proved to be. James Godson was 50 years old, his wife Elizabeth Godson was 48. They had been ma rried for 25 years and their love for each other now was so strong that both the ir hearts had merged together into one a long time ago. They felt each others pa in and felt each others joy. They had long past the age of having little fights and raising their voices to one another. The years and wisdom had taken that awa y. They now knew beyond just words that they were one. One doesn t shout at ones elf if they find themselves doing something wrong. Rather one corrects oneself if they find themselves doing something wrong. James & Elizabeth were good Christian folks who everyone in the community valued deeply and fervently respected. The joy of the Lord in their lives had made them the happiest people on earth until Elizabeth was diagnosed to be H.I.V positive . The news was the last thing anyone expected when Elizabeth went for her regular m edical check up. Her husband felt like his heart had just fallen out of his chest to the floor ben eath him and had shattered into a million pieces, with each piece cracked in a t housand different ways. How could his wife be H.I.V positive? Does it mean he has ...? Wait! doesn t his wife having ... mean that his wife was cheating on him? Was the last 25 years of his life a lie? Word spread and people started to talk. James confronted his wife but his wife promised him with tears in her eyes that s he had never cheated on him not even once for the over 25 years they ve been tog ether. James instincts told him that his wife was telling the truth. He knew her heart like he knew his. But... he was not even sure that he knew what that meant anymo re. He couldn t deny the facts. The facts said she was H.I.V positive and he kne w she didn t get it from him. He had never cheated on her. But wait! H.I.V doesn t have to be sexually transmitted. What if he got it from the clipper the barbe r used at the barbing salon? What if it was him that gave it to her? This new line of possibility definitely added more pressure to James. He didn t t ell his wife but he secretly went to test and see if he was H.I.V positive in a hospital a little bit on the outskirts of the city. Amazingly, he was H.I.V negative. He had the doctor take the test again but it st ill turned out negative. Wow! now how is that possible? It means that his wife probably got it after last Tuesday. Oh My Gosh! that means, whatever affair she had is recent. What if she s still having the affair right now? James marched to his wife and asked her if she was having an affair. She said, No. He would have shouted at her but he just couldn t - he just couldn t do it. He sti ll loved her. She was still his peaches. Elizabeth saw the look in James eyes and in her heart she felt how James felt. S he knew how much a part of him wanted to shout at her for the first time in over
20 years. She knew how much his love for her stopped her from shouting at her. She knew that even though what he taught she did killed him, it would kill him ev en more to do even the slighted thing to hurt her; emotionally or in any other w ay. The taught of his made her burst out in tears. She couldn t control herself. How did she get into his mess? How did the man who loved her so much get to feel hur t this bad because of her? James didn t want to stick around for her crying, or perhaps he didn t want her t o see that tears had started to well up in his eyes too. He turned around and wa lked out of the house, banging the front door behind him. James talked to a friend about it. The friend said that he should get a divorce. He is not H.I.V positive, that is his ticket to leave. He still had a life to li ve and it s obvious she s cheating on him. The fact that she s lying about the c heating means that she s still cheating on him. Whatever secret affair she s bee n having is still going on and she plans to keep it going on. James saw some sense in what his friend said but he later decided to ask the Lord for his opinion instead. God s opinion is always the best. James went to a quiet brook he had always liked to walk to, to have some quiet tim e with the Lord there. James then asked to God to please tell him what to do. God answered and said to him, "How are you confident that I love you?" "Because you sent your only son to die for me even when I was still a sinner", Ja mes answered almost instinctively. Then after James had completely processed his own words, it hit him. That was the answer right there. God still loved him and never left him even when he was a sinner, rather than leave he performed the si ngular most gargantuan act of love ever. He sacrificed his son for him. James realized that he should love his wife the same way. He knew that deep down he still wanted to continue loving his wife. James said, "Thank you, Lord." Then he turned and ran. In-spite of his age he ran so fast that an angry dog wouldn t have caught him. He was running back home to wrap his arms around the woman he loves. As he got home, he burst into his wife standing on a stool with a rope around her neck. She was about to kill herself. In that spilt second their eyes met, she could read his mind - She could read tha t he was no longer angry with her. She didn t know how or why but she knew that for some reason he was no longer angry which her. She could read that he wanted to hug her and tell her how much he loved her. Elizabeth changed her mind that second and proceeded to take the noose off her ne ck. Her husband rushed to get her off the stool. They held each other in each others arms and cried on the floor for 20 minutes. M uch was said without words being spoken. James lifted up his wife s chin and looked her in the eye and said, "Elizabeth, I love you with all my heart and with all my soul. I would never leave you no mat ter what. I signed up to be with you until death do us part and if we both die o f H.I.V I don t care. I did a test and I m not positive but I still will never l eave you." "But I didn t cheat on you..." Elizabeth started to say, but her husband put his f inger gently on her lips and lovingly and softly hushed her. He said, "I don t c are." Right then the phone started to ring. They still held each other in one another s arms. Neither of them wanted to let go. Neither of them wanted to answer the ph one. They would let it go to voice message. Over the phone they heard, "Hello Mrs Elizabeth Godson? It s Dr. David here. It s actually quite funny really but there was a mix up with your medical tests the other day. You are not H.I.V positive. You are negative. I have the correct resu lts her with me. Please don t sue me, I m very very sorry. I m sorry for whateve r inconvenience it must have caused you." The End.
