The Chronicles of The Best They Ever Had

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. -Acts 2:43-47

Geez guys

Because no one has posted anything in a while, and I check this darn thing at least once a day, I thought we should have something new.

I've been reading Captivating, and today I got to the chapter 8, "Beauty to Unveil" and it really just spoke to me and made so much sense. So, I thought I would share some quotations that I thought were really great.

"To experience the strength of a man is to have him speak on our behalf. For when men abuse with words, we are pierced. Their strength has wounded us. When they are silent, we are starved. They have offered no strength; they have abandoned us. But when they speak with us, hear us, offer their words to us and on our behalf, something in our hearts is able to rest....

"We long for the protection masculine strength offers. To have them shield us from physical harm, yes. But also to have them shield us from emotional harm and spiritual attack....

"As women we long for someone strong to stand between us and the vicious assaults of our Enemy."

The chapter as a whole was great, and it talks a lot about what women bring to the table. But that's a lot to type, so maybe later.

And that fella is Jesus! Obviously there's a desire in all of us for human fulfillment (thats the whole reason God made Eve) and i'm sure thats a lot of what the book means...but those quotes just made me think of Jesus.
