Women and Men

Helpful women … (The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down. Prov.14:1)
Some are single, some have wed,
some look wearily ahead,
tired of babies, toddlers wild,
some have longings for one child;
some find ’teenagers a strain,
feel their efforts are in vain,
some have interests far afield,
some have loneliness concealed,
some have husbands they neglect,
some have husbands who reject
Words of truth: We tear or build
– duties skimped, or life fulfilled.

Needed men
Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home. Proverbs 27:8
Where have all the fathers gone?
– lonely and frustrated.
Where have all the fathers gone?
– living alone.
Where have all the fathers gone?
– families impoverished.
What loss and bitterness,
distress and emptiness!
