I read this today and I thought this was worth sharing....As I said in my previous blog, it is not a menial job, it is a calling from God.

The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Gen. 2:18

Woman's mission is to be the suitable help-mate of that man, to whom she has given herself as the companion of his pilgrimage upon earth.

She is, in wedded life, to be his constant companion, in whose companionship he is to find one, who meets him hand to hand, eye to eye, lip to lip, and heart to heart--to whom he can unburden the secrets of a heartpressed down with care, or wrung with anguish;whose presence shall be to him above all other friendship;whose voice shall be his sweetest music;whose smiles his brightest sunshine;from whom he shall go forth with regret; and to whose company he shall return with willing feet, when the toils of the day are over; who shall walk near his loving heart, and feel the throbbing of affection as her arm leans on his, and presses on his side.

In his hours of private companionship, he shall tell her all the secrets of his heart; find in her all the capabilities, and all the promptings, of the most tender and endeared fellowship; and in her gentle smiles, and unrestrained speech, enjoy all to be expected in one who was given by God to be his companion and friend.

That companionship which woman was designed to afford to man, must of course be included the sympathetic offices of the comforter. It is hers, in their hours of retirement, to console and cheer him; when he is injured or insulted, to heal the wounds of his troubled spirit; when burdened by care, to lighten his load by sharing it; when groaning with anguish, to calm by her peace-speaking words the tumult of his heart; and act, in all his sorrows, the part of a ministering angel.

The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Gen. 2:18

-J. A. James

And to think as we all do this for our husbands, how much easier it will be for him to obey what God has asked him to do as a husband.

Ephesians 5:25 - 33
"Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband."

Awesome post! I agree 100%, but that doesn't matter really does it? If I agree or not? What matters is that it is BIBLICAL! Keep up these wonderful posts!

I do not see a problem with women blogging about their personal lives and sharing recipes. We can share things with each other and hopefully help one another when someone is in need of a friend in a crisis situation. It's more than just spiritual, it's called sisterly love.

There is not only nothing wrong with Godly women blogging, it is uplifting and edifying. The caution is that some women have taken the mantle of rebuking men which is unscriptural. I visit several blogs by sisters in the Lord and I am edified. Keep it up, C. !
