Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
I am ashamed that women are so simpleTo offer war where they should kneel for peace;Or seek for rule, supremacy and sway,When they are bound to serve, love and obey.
Ah Hilary,How I repent of my misspent youth as a feminist.How like a resident of Ninevah, not knowing my right hand from my left.But . . . too bad there aren't more good men who know how to stand up to women and give us the loving correction we need.It takes a special and sadly rare kind of man to stand up to the hell that hath no fury. He has to be firmly rooted in Christ and have a sacrificial love. It means being strong, not smiling smugly when the harridan interrupts, but doing it with love not resentment or anger. Good humor helps, too. The patience has to be to the bone.Your friend Deborah
Good humour and a firm hand on the belt, I would say.
I always found this odd with some women.I work with a lady who believes it important to move up the corporate ladder. Who thinks that women who stay home and raise children are fools.I said to her one day, "are you willing to accept the fact that as soon as you leave this company.... as soon as you retire or die that you'll be forgotten in an instant?"She was upset by this and denied that would be the case. I reassured her, "who, after leaving this bank, is remembered fondly? Whose name is recalled in meeting after meeting for mere nostalgic purposes? No one. You will be forgotten as soon as you leave that door."Women who devote their lives to their family will have a lasting memory/impression.They will have children who hopefully will have children.... generations upon generations wanting to know more and more about who were the people that came before.Companies are sad replacement for families. As hard as you work - as quickly as you'll be forgotten.
