SCRIPTURE

It will be like a woman suffering the pains of labor. When her child is born, her anguish gives way to joy because she has brought a new baby into the world.

~John 16:21, NLT

my two cents worth.

A couple of Saturdays ago, Mylee was helping me in the back yard and she asked me a series of questions; one of those questions seemed rather odd…She said, “Grand daddy, are you glad you are a boy?” You can imagine what I said, “Sure honey, I am perfectly content to be a boy.” I should have finished the sentence by saying, “I would be perfectly content had God made me a girl” but I could not bring myself to say it. Don’t get me wrong, I like females; I just don’t want to be one. It chills my blood to think about having to dry my hair every time I shower, wear make up, dresses…yuck, I’m about to make myself sick. Then I read John 16:21 yesterday and I realized that no man knows the joy of giving birth to a child. We carry the seed but we can’t carry the baby. Actually, there are lots of advantages to being female but in this case I don’t mind being at a disadvantage. Women are better looking, more sensitive, more courageous, more intuitive, and more intelligent in their naïve kind of way. I know some lug headed men out there who disagree but she picked you out bud…you didn’t pick her. She is three steps ahead of you and you don’t know it…you big dummy. She knows if your life insurance is paid up to date and she probably has your funeral arranged. If you don’t believe me, ask her! The fact that she married you doesn’t mean she is dumb,  just  that she made a mistake. {Kidding of course}
