A Woman from God’s Point of View (Thanksgiving 2014)

Turning toward the woman, cialis usa viagra Jesus said to his host, buy viagra viagra sale Simon, do you see this woman? I entered your house and you gave Me no water to wash off My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 

Luke 7:44

This story is dedicated to all mothers, daughters, wives, and grandmothers who will yet again orchestrate and help with another Thanksgiving dinner for their families. You are very much appreciated by fathers, children, sons, husbands, grandfathers, and I think the Lord, Himself, too for doing so.

(For the sake of readability all quote marks in this story were removed.)

By the time the Lord made woman, He was into his sixth day working overtime. An angel appeared and said why are you spending so much time on this one? And the Lord answered, have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart-and she will do everything with only two hands.

The angel was astounded at the requirements. Only two hands!? No way! And that’s just on the standard model? That’s too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish. But I won’t, the Lord protested. I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick and can work 18 hour days.

The angel moved closer and touched the woman. But you have made her so soft, Lord. She is soft, the Lord agreed, but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish. The angel asked: Will she be able to think? The Lord replied, not only will she be able to think she will be able to reason and negotiate.

The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman’s cheek. Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one. That’s not a leak, the Lord corrected, that’s a tear! What’s the tear for the angel asked? They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice. They don’t take “no” for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give

However, if there is one flaw in a woman, it is that sometimes they forget their worth.  So at this Thanksgiving be sure to remind them of it.  The Lord would be very pleased if you did, as He is Himself with the women in your life.
