by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Appreciating Your Husband
Editor’s note: This is a good example of thinking your way is the only right way. In the unquoted bit Lori starts off with a story about the television show ‘Candid Camera’ before awkwardly seguing into men going to war, her bad neck and lifting up that case of Costco toilet paper. Some women can pick up things just as heavy as men and it does not make them any less women. Some men cannot do that. Again, it does not affect their status as men. Ridiculous point here.
God created men bigger and stronger for a reason. They are to be the protectors and providers for women and children. God specifically told them that they were to “toil in the soil” to make a living. When Israel went to war, the men twenty years and older had to go fight as protectors of their nation.
I have a bad neck and can’t pick up heavy things so Ken helps me a lot around the house with heavy things and things that need to be fixed. When I go to Costco alone and have to pick up anything heavy (over five pounds), I wait for the first guy to come along. Not one of them has ever minded and even seemed to like being helpful. Just yesterday, I bought a lemon tree there and men were willing to help me get it into my cart and into my car, then Ken helped me get it into the house.
Yes, men’s and women’s physical makeup are different because God created them to compliment each other NOT compete with each other. Appreciate this fact instead of fight it and thank your husband for his strength in helping you with the heavy or difficult things!
