January 12, 2015How God and Dr. Laura Saved My Marriage

This is a little long, but I thought you would enjoy this story. I have been happily married for 34 years. We got married rather young, but it has worked for us.
All my children were very involved in sports, music, school... Two of my girls played the violin. I knew nothing about violins, but they chose their instruments. Just about every time I tuned one of the violins, I broke a string, so I was forever going to the shop. There was a nice man, around my age, that was always so helpful. As time went on, we would sort of flirt and laugh and talk a bit while I waited. One day he said to me he could order a tuner that would help me with this problem of breaking strings all the time. I put the order in and he asked for my email address. Of course I gave it to him.
When I drove, I normally took the old truck. The radio in the truck would go on and off, so I usually kept it off and used this time to say a few words to the Good Man. On this particular day when checked my email, I had received an email from the gentleman in question. The email basically was very complimentary, and forward to say the least. I have to say I was flattered, only human.
While driving, I talked to God about this guy. I explained to Him I wasn't going to tell my husband because I could handle it, and it really was nothing. Of course, the real reason was because I liked the attention. No sooner had I said that when the radio comes blasting on and your voice boomed out with "If you are hiding it from your husband, then it is wrong." The radio cut out after that. Needless to say, I went home and told my husband everything. He being the great man he is said, "Do you need my help?" I told him I didn't, but he should take care of the violins from now on.
Dr. Laura, I have told this story for years, calling it my God moment. I just thought I should give you a little credit too. Hope you enjoy it.
