A naval officer whose ship was being buffeted by a storm was confronted by his wife, who cried out with alarm, "Oh, how can you be so calm in such a storm?"

He arose and drew his sword. Pointing it at his wife's breast, he asked, "Aren't you afraid?"

She instantly replied, "No, of course not."

"Why?" asked the officer.

"Because," she said, "I know the sword is in the hand of my husband, and you love me too much to hurt me."

"Then," said he, "remember, I know Whom I have believed and know that He holds the winds in His fist and the waters in the hollow of His Hand."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

A lady was browsing through everything at a yard sale and said to the hostess, "My husband is going to be so upset when he finds out I stopped at a yard sale."

"I'm sure he'll understand when you tell him about all the bargains you found," the hostess replied.

"Normally, yes," the lady said. "But he just broke his leg, and he's waiting for me to take him to the hospital to have it set."
