Eighty-Three-Year-Old Has a Heart of Fifty
(Minghui.org) After I married my wife, I realized that she did not have a pleasant disposition. She was often cranky and would pick a serious fight with me every couple of days. I was unhappy and started thinking about divorce.
A short time later, however, she learned the practice of Falun Dafa, which changed her completely. Not only did she work peacefully in the field with me, but she also took care of all of the housework without complaint. All of her illnesses were gone, and she no longer had a bad temper.
When we occasionally had an argument, she would later apologize and ask me to forgive her. She said her practice teaches that when there is a conflict, she should look within. She would insist that it was her problem and that she would do better.
The relationship between her and our neighbors also became much more harmonious. She always considers others first.
My wife's siblings work outside of the village, so my wife has taken it upon herself to take care of her elderly parents. They live several kilometers away, but my wife would still walk to their home often to visit and do housework for them.
My wife also takes care of my mother, who lives with us. My mother often brags that her daughter-in-law takes very good care of her. We all see the beauty of Falun Dafa from my wife.
However, while doing business at a market in December 2014, my wife was arrested by police because of her faith.
When my mother-in-law and my mother went to the police department to request that my wife be released, the police treated them poorly and chased them out of the office.
They sat on the concrete floor of the hallway in hopes of being able to get a chance to talk with the officers. One of the officers opened the window to make them shiver from the harsh winter weather. The officers then dragged them out; one of them kicked my mother-in-law.
At home, my mother-in-law suffered with pain in her stomach and chest. She moaned through the night, and we tried in vain to comfort her. In the morning, I called the police, but they would not take any responsibility for the incident. We then took her to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with soft tissue injuries.
A doctor listened to my mother-in-law's heart with a stethoscope and inquired about her age. When he heard she was 83, he was surprised and said that she had the heart of a 50-year-old.
My mother-in-law had previously suffered from a lot of illnesses, but most of them were now gone. I remembered what my wife said: “Be good to Falun Dafa practitioners and you will be blessed.”
I later told this story to my cousin, who also practices Falun Dafa. She told me, “Your wife is a good person. These elderly ladies have been blessed for wanting to have her released.”
