A DIALOGUE OF MARRIAGE

Argument:Contrary to popular myth The Bible does NOT teach that the wife(woman) is subservient to the husband(man).


HE: 
       lean,
              lean
                     upon me
SHE:
       love,
              love
                       without desire
REFRAIN:

*Lean,
           lean 
                 each,
                       upon the other
SHE:
       My spouse
                      my source 
                      **head, 
                              of we two
HE:
      My helpmeet
                      counter-part me

REFRAIN:
                 One flesh
                                  together
                                  he, and she
                                  with 
                                         THEE

* submit a physical act- to lean upon - we upon Jesus, in Jesus we lean each upon the other,in marriage the wife upon her husband
** head = source (as a spring is of a river) as Jesus is the head(source) of the body of Christ(the church) and the husband is the head(source) of the wife joined together as one upon marriage.

    So dear are these words..to lean upon each other..How lighter the cross and cherished happy moments will become if we live up to these words with God our center.Thanks for sharing these thoughts.
