Men As Protectors, Women As Nurturers

My son-in-law loves protecting and providing for Alyssa.  He wants her a safe neighborhood, in a safe car, safe with him.  My son, Ryan, wants the same for Erin and his baby.  They are both looking for homes for their new families and the number one priority for both of them is safety.  That is their job given by God to be providers and protectors and they both take that job very seriously. 

Alyssa loves taking care of her home and new husband.  She loves shopping for him and providing healthy food for him.  She loves decorating her home and making it cozy and clean. 

Erin is the same.  She loves staying home with her baby and loving on her husband.  When it is a holiday, she goes to the dollar store and buys inexpensive things to decorate her home with and make it homey.  She loves to seek out bargains and use their money wisely.  Both Alyssa and Erin are nesters and nurturers.  This is the way God designed it to be. 

Our society has gotten so out of whack.  The roles are so blurred.  It is so beautiful to watch the roles being played out the way God intended for them to be confusion, just love and harmony.  His ways are so good...

For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
Ephesians 5:23

Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,  to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Titus 2:4,5
