30 Days of Challenge
By Amy Gentry
One month of the hubs commuting every weekend to work in another state. One month of being a single mom Monday to Friday. One month of being the sole child taxi driver. One month of going back to work full time. One month of handling car repairs, Boy Scout achievements, and protecting the homestead. Realization??? I am not cut out for this.Watch sitcoms and make a list of the host of jokes poking fun of men, how men would fall apart if they had to play mom for the day. The amount of material is immeasurable, but the truth is this is feminist propaganda. A marriage is a partnership. Remember in Genesis 2:18 when the “Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” Husband and wife were made to fit together in perfect balance, “This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” (Genesis 2:24)
I hate to keep throwing out cliché marriage verses, but… “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.” (Ecclesiastes 4:9) Husband and wife were made to do the dance of life together and succeeding at the game of life is at the heart of every woman.
Therefore I am counting down the days until the Gentry husband and wife can again be together in the same state everyday, take turns picking up the kids from school, figuring out together how to get the car to the shop, and sitting in bed while he checks the doors and sets the security alarm before we go to bed TOGETHER each night.
