The Trouble Tree

Dear Friends,

I recently was told this great true story and I was compelled to share with you. I hope you will find the value in it.

The Trouble Tree

A man hired a carpenter to help him restore an old farmhouse. The first day on the job was a rough one for the carpenter: A flat tire caused him to miss an hour of work, his electric saw quit, and now his ancient pickup truck refused to start.

His employer offered to drive the carpenter home. The carpenter sat in stony silence for the entire ride, then gruffly invited his employer in to meet his family. As they walked toward the front door, the carpenter paused briefly by a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands. As the door opened, he underwent an amazing transformation: His tanned face wreathed in smiles; he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss.

Afterwards he walked his employer to the car. As they passed by the tree the carpenter had touched, the employer asked him about what he’d seen him do earlier.

“Oh, that’s my trouble tree,” the carpenter replied. “I know I can’t help having troubles on the job, but one thing’s for sure, they don’t belong in the house with my wife and children. So, I just hang them on the tree when I come home in the evening, and I pick them up again in the morning.

“Funny thing, though,” he smiled. “When I come out in the morning to pick them up, there aren’t nearly as many as I remembered hanging there the night before.”

Is there room in your yard for a trouble tree?
