My cyber-space friend, Elisabeth, whom I’ve never met but have corresponded with now and then, posted here in her blog yesterday. It was a heads-up about an article she’d written for Boundless, Focus on the Family’s resource for singles.
Both her blog post and article are well-thought-out and life-giving to both women and men. Women can get into a habit of bashing and belittling men, so it’s refreshing and heartening to hear a shout-out for strong, Godly men who, as Elisabeth says:
~affirm a woman’s worth,
~display God’s faithfulness and unselfishness, and
~lead by example, and expand rather than suppress who we are.
The article made me realize how rich I am with the strong, Godly men in my life. With very few exceptions, the men in my world have made me a better person, humored, encouraged and looked after me. I am newly thankful.
