Hello lovely readers and followers! Today’s post is brought to you by Jeffrey H. King. Jeffrey is a Christian blogger and writer with a humorous and creative edge. When he submitted this post about a man’s viewpoint on women and marriage, I was intrigued. It’s really refreshing to hear a Christian man’s perspective. Ladies, this one’s for you. Enjoy!
And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man (Genesis 2:22).
I love women. I really do. I find women to be as beautiful as any sunset or sunrise God ever made. I can sit and watch women walk by for hours just to enjoy these works of art God made.
Men and women were, shall we say, separated at “birth.” Women are the better half. They are the partner God made so man wouldn’t be alone. They reflect so much of God that you can’t help just wanting to be around them!
I’m not just talking about some company for when you’re lonely or to pick up the remote. They are life giving and life sustaining. No man can nurture like a woman. No man can comfort like a woman.
Let me get specific for you. My wife Julie and I have been married for 31 years. I made a real effort to be involved in my daughters’ lives, but when things got ugly, they wanted Mom. She was the one who taught them their basic life skills, how to act with people, to love books, to make your own games, and so much more.
I’ve found myself skidding up to the grave three times so far; double-bypass, gangrenous gall bladder, and a bad reaction to a drug that should have caused renal failure but didn’t.
My Julie pulled me through each time. After heart surgery, she helped me sit up in bed in the morning. I couldn’t do it myself right away. She dressed me, made GREAT sandwiches for me, and was even part body-guard, always looking out for something I might get hurt by. She took me to the ER in the middle of the night when my gall bladder perforated, leaking gangrene juice into my abdominal cavity, and she cared for me when that statin reaction had me so weak I could barely get around.
Let’s face it; my family swam in the shallow end of the gene pool!
I didn’t have any water wings when I found myself in the diving well, but I did have my Julie!
Our marriage is 100/100. We both give and we both get. We are partners! She is my love and my life. This world would be a darker place without her.
Each of you ladies reading this need to understand that this is the God-given “superpower” bestowed upon each of you! You are His guardians of life. You are the best part of man – and God – here to do some awesome work. And the great thing about that? It’s your gift. You come by it naturally. It’ll happen when the right guy comes along. It’s like a Tomb Raider movie where the two halves of something special are brought together and the power is released.
I’m not saying there won’t be trials; there will be! But you are that special part of humanity ordained by God to tend to life.
So, if you are ever walking through a mall or down a street, and some old guy watches you go by where he’s sitting, maybe that’s me watching a beautiful part of Creation pass by.
Hey there, it’s Emily! I hope you all enjoyed this guest post. Stay tuned for Friday because I am planning a special post for you all <3
