Powerful Love Story

A very poor man lived with his wife.

One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.

The man felt very sorry and said no. 

He explained that he did not even have enough money to repair his sandals which had just broken. She did not insist on her request.

The man went to work and sold his damaged sandals at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife.

He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.

He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut. She had sold her hair and was holding a new pair of sandals. Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.

MORAL: To love is nothing, to be loved is something but to love and to be loved by the one you love, that is Everything.

Dear Readers, did you ever experience any similar incident with your loved one? Please share with us.

    This story looks like the prophet jacob’s (job)’s story; Jacob was a healthy, strong and rich man,after years he lost his fortune and he became ill, nobody stood with him only his wife who was nursing him. When his wife was asking him to pray God to recover him,but he refuses and says that God has always been good to him,and what he is enduring is a test from God so he has to be patient.
    Jacob’s wife used to work from house to house to feed him,but people were anxious that she gives them the illness of her husband so they dismissed her, and one day, she had no money to buy food for feeding her husband so she cut her hair and sold it, and bought the food, when her husband knew it, he was angry, and felt sorry for his wife’s hair, so he asked God to cure him! and God cured him.
    (This story is a real story, but it’s rare to find people who can be faithfull like this):(

    May be this is reason why it is said ” Marry a person who loves you than to marry a person you love. “
