The original was called But you don't know Harry and was written by a woman for women, but it impacted me when I read it about 30 years ago, and I think it applies to all of us.
The title of the book means
I'd like to be obedient to Jesus and be nice to my wife, but my wife, Kerry is impossible!
I'd love to put in an honest day's work, but my boss, Kerry is a mean person and doesn't deserve to be treated kindly.
If we're honest, I reckon we all have piles of these excuses. And that's all they are, aren't they!
