The Celibate Village Board Member

Celibacy for many can be a choice one makes or it can be a  condition imposed on someone by the circumstances that surround our lives.

For example, there was a local village board member who attended a weekend marriage retreat with his wife.  As they listened intently, the guest pastor declared, “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other in order to have a good marriage.”

The Pastor then looked at the village board member and asked, “Can you name your wife's favorite flower?”  
Without hesitation, the village board member beamed a big smile,  touched her arm, and gently said, “Gold Medal All-Purpose, isn't it?”

And so began the village board member's life of celibacy.
