The following is a guest post (in honor of Father’s day); by my husband James:
A quick something about me. I love God (Yahweh), my beautiful wife Gracie, and our 6 children. I am a bit sarcastic and use lots of one-liner’s. I like beer; dark is my favorite but I don’t discriminate against light beers.
I think God gave us beer for our enjoyment but not to abuse. I like talking through theology while enjoying a good beer; that’s one of the reasons why we like @reformedpubcast on twitter.
One of my love languages is joking with people…just ask Gracie. We have a constant running joke in our house, which consists of me saying, “Yet another reason why being a man is better than being a woman.” I am totally joking with this, but I like to wait for a weird moment when we are together and just say a random number and give a reason. Gracie laughs at me every time.
Some examples follow:
Reason #5: Have you ever walked down the hairspray aisle with the objective of finding the perfect product? Being a man is better.
Reason #67 why being a man is better; I can go to the bathroom by myself while in public settings.
Reason #55: As a man, I don’t have to try on 95 outfits in order to find 2 that fit. This frees up lots of time for other things. (Seriously, we need to find a store that serves beer to men while their wives try on clothes…I’m just sayin’…)
But all joking aside, I thank God for Gracie. I couldn’t do life without her. God knew us men. We need help and partnership; otherwise known as relationship. We are after all made in the image of a relational God.
I want to challenge you to take a moment to think of your relationships and be thankful for the people who are there to help, encourage, and cheer you on; as you continue on in your journey.
May God bless you and your relationships. Whether it be marriage or friendship; HE always provides us with someone there to help us.
