| Pointing to |
The stories we experience and then tell are stories which point to two things. Who. And why. The latter ultimately explains what we are and what we are doing here. It explains the universal traits we share and the unique activities we engage in. We are broken and are working to rebuild something. Why are we broken? That’s why we ask the first question. Who. He made everything. And he made us relationship creatures.
We point to him, no matter what we do. In my life, you see me doing a lot of pointing. I observe everything. But I’ve had a lot of help. And those who pointed before me, showing me what to point to and why, have been women.
I wanted to highlight one woman who for the last 3 years has pointed me in the direction of the life-giving water of the father in a season where I’ve experienced much dried land. I haven’t been able to see that growth. But it’s been there. And whatever I’ve been able to build, she’s been the one pointing, planning, cheering, and lifting up in prayer. So I want to say, women build stuff. A lot of stuff.
Reiterating William Goldings words: “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.“
