A girl in love asked her boyfriend…
Girl = (g); Boy = (b)
(g): Tell me… who do you love most in this world?
(b): You, of course!
(g): In your heart, what am I to you?
(b): The boy thought for a moment and looked intently in her eyes and said, “You are my rib. In the Bible,
it was said that God saw that Adam was lonely, during his sleep; God took one of Adam’s rib and created Eve. Every man has been searching for his missing rib, only when you find the woman of your life; you’ll no longer feel the lingering ache in your heart.” After their wedding, the couple had a sweet and happy life for a while. However, the youthful couple began to drift apart due to the busy schedule of life and the never-ending worries of daily problems…. their life became mundane….
All the challenges posed by the harsh realities of life began to gnaw away their dreams and love for each other… The couple began to have more quarrels and each quarrel became more heated.
One day, after the quarrel, the girl ran out of the house. At the opposite side of the road, she shouted, “You don’t love me!” The boy hated her childishness and out of impulse, retorted, “Maybe, it was a mistake for us to be together! You were never my missing rib!”
Suddenly, she turned quiet and stood there for a while…He regretted what he said but words spoken are like thrown away water you can never take it back.
With tears, she went home to pack her things and was determined in breaking-up. Before she left the house, she said, “If I’m really not your missing rib, please let me go….. She continued, “It is less painful this way…let us go on our separate ways and search for your own partners…”
Five years went by…. He never remarried but he had tried to find out about her life indirectly…… She had left the country and back…. She had married a foreigner and divorced……. He felt anguished that she never waited for him.
In the dark and lonely night, he lit his cigarette and felt the lingering ache in his heart. He couldn’t bring himself to admit that he was missing her.. One day, they finally met…. At the airport, a place where there were many reunions and good-byes…. He was going away on a business trip. She was standing there alone, with just the security door separating them. She smiled at him gently.
(b): How are you?
(g): I’m fine. How about you… Have you found your missing rib?
(g): I’ll be flying to New York in the next flight.
(b): I’ll be back in 2 weeks time. Give me a call when you are back… You know my number… Nothing has changed. With a smile, she turned around and waved good-bye…Good-bye…..
One week later, he heard of her death. She had perished in New York in the event that shocked the world.
Midnight….. Once again, he lit his cigarette…..And like before, he felt the lingering ache in his heart…. He finally knew, she was the missing rib that he had carelessly broken….
Sometimes, people say things out of moments of fury….. Most often than not, the outcome could be disastrous and detrimental…. We vent our frustrations 99% at our loved ones…. And even though we know that we ought to “think twice and act wisely”, it’s often easier said than done. Things happen each day, many of which are beyond our control….
Let us treasure every moment and everyone in our lives…. If you plan to just value them tomorrow, tomorrow may never come… and you realize one of them could have been your missing rib….
I am sure you would have preferred to hear a happy ending to this story, where they met and made up and lived happily ever after. But this did not happen, and so this true story ends on a sad note. The good thing is that you and I still have the opportunities to make the stories in our lives have happy endings.
So, don’t let your missing rib or your rib-owner pass you by. Don’t disappoint or hurt your spouse, parents or brothers or sisters, or boyfriend or girlfriend. You see you never know when they may be taken from you, so be sure to relate to them how much they mean to you and how much you love them, EVERYDAY.
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN THEIR MISSING RIBS & HAVE FULFILLED ALL
RIGHTEOUSNESS PLS. TREASURE & GUIDE JEALOUSLY
For those that have seen but not fulfill all righteousness all you need do is take a little step of faith & God will see you through
For those that are still searching (GOD’S FAVOUR) Peace & Love So when u find your rib, never ever let go and for those of you that have found yours, treasure what you have, life is short!
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear” (1John 4:18)
Make sure it’s not too late
