We divided into groups (men on one side, women on the other) to discuss ways in which men and women can be a comfort to each other:
This is what each group came up with:
- feel loved and supported
- offer corrections in love
- wisdom and kindness
- give yourself to each other
- priesthood blessings
- living righteously
- listens and understands (not always giving us a solution)
- love us for how we are
- be equal/evenly yoked
- service (especially when heavy lifting is involved)
- help discipline the children
(notice that sex was not on the women's list--just thought I'd point that out!)
Anyway, I thought this was an interesting parallel between what each side really needs to feel supported...
I liked both of these quotes:
"If the husband and wife agree with everything all the time than the one is unnecessary"(Billy Graham)
"Happiness is not the absence adversity, but the presence of the Lord."
