World Marriage Day-Sunday, February 11th, 2007

Then the Lord God made the man fall into a deep sleep, and while he was sleeping, he took out one of the man's ribs and closed up the flesh. He formed a woman out of the rib and brought her to him...That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united with his wife and they become one.

Genesis 2:21-22,24

Woman was not taken from man's head to be ruled by him,

nor from his feet to be trampled upon,

but from his side to walk beside him,

from under his arm to be protected by him

and from near to his heart to be loved by him.

from a meditation by Gordon Higham

The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.

Theodore Hesburg

This was in one of my daily dovotionals and I thought it was worth sharing. I was blessed by being married to a wonderful man for 27 years before he died in 1992. And am thankful to have some wonderful memories.

I'll be praying for all married couples and asking for God's blessings for them.

'On Ya' - ma
