There are not enough words to describe how wonderful a person you are and always will be. I am so lucky to have had you as my Mom. The life lessons you have taught me will stay with me forever and I will pass them on to my daughter Kylie. You will live on and on with us both and we will take you with us where ever we go. I love you Mommy…….

Dear Aunt Dot,

I don’t have much to give, but what I can, I give with all my heart. I hope you are watching over all of us with the same vibrant smile & laughter I remember. Thank you for always making me feel welcomed and loved. I hope you knew how much I cared; how much we all cared. -Adam

Whether it was telling me my condo looked like a college dorm, giving me furniture to put my clothes in or make the most delicious coleslaw…..you were more than a sister in law…you were another loving sister who is missed every day but is not nor ever will be forgotten.

I missed you on your birthday, on the New Year, on your anniversary, on our Sunday family walks. I watch your beautiful granddaughters smile and laugh and I imagine that you are smiling and laughing with them. I will always miss you and I will always imagine what you would look like with each birthday, each New Year, each anniversary, each step that Chloe and Kylie take. You are in them.

God has clearly made men and women drtiefenfly, both physically and emotionally; not in regard to our physical and emotional needs, but rather in regard to our make-up. Our roles are different as well in the dynamics of life and Church order. Let’s start with some basic facts. God made man first and then made woman as his helper. All of the apostles chosen by God to follow and learn from Jesus were men. Men are called to be the leaders of the Church and teachers of the Word.In life, God calls men to be the heads of their household and the Bible suggests no reason to think this should be different for leadership roles in society. I well understand that’s not the popular answer, but God’s Word is not always popular, but is always right. However, since there is no directive from God that requires male leadership in society, we must expect and accept woman with leadership qualities as fully qualified and gifted from God.Now in terms of our behavior, men need to be men and women need to be women, in all areas and in all things. However, that’s not to say that men are not allowed to have or show qualities that have traditionally been construed as feminine; such as sensitivity, kindness and tenderness. Additionally, that’s not to say that women are not allowed to have or show qualities such as assertiveness, competitiveness and ambition.But the videos shown here are not an expression of male and female qualities as expressed by God, but rather male and female qualities as stereotyped by this world, driven by sin. These videos were not humorous to me at all; but rather I found myself quite saddened. The video of men appears to express these men as stereotypically feminine in their behavior and their physical demeanor. They appear overly concerned with feelings, emotions and gossip. And women were portrayed as stereotypically male. So it’s not surprising that some comments on the video depict the men as homosexuals and the women as lesbians.What the video does offer of importance is it demonstrates what’s clearly wrong with today’s society. Try this… switch the men and women in the videos and one might think that it’s normal behavior. While that may be true for many, the behavior in both cases does not bring glory to God. The behavior of the women (portraying men) is harsh, arrogant, uncaring, insensitive, disrespectful, indifferent and ill-mannered. The behavior of the men (portraying women) is chatty, hypersensitive, touchy, skittish and driven to gossip. None of this behavior glorifies God, however it portrays sin. God calls us to show respect, humility, love, gentleness and kindness to all people in all things. Colossians chapter 3, specifically verses 12-17, describes this so beautifully. Let us all seek the roles God calls us to fulfill as men and women, beautifully different and beautifully united together in our faith, trust, hope and love of Christ Jesus, which is the freedom that comes when we give our lives to Him.
