A Man’s Night. . .

Tonight, I have the rare opportunity to be “home alone!” Now, don’t get me wrong – I LOVE my family, but. . . there’s something about coming home, putting on pajamas, knowing that I can do anything that I so desire to do! The reason for this occasion is because on Tuesday night, Aiden called with a very important question for PaPaw. “PaPaw, would you like to go with me and Mr. David on a ‘man’s night?'” “A man’s night?” I spoke up, “Well, what about Mommy and Gammy?” He went on to explain how they were inviting PaPaw to go with them to the “Monster Truck” show at the fairgrounds in West Plains Friday night. Since Mommy has a hurt foot, she was going to stay home with Murphy (the puppy) and Edgar (the terror – AKA the hairless cat). Since I had to work, I could stay home, too, because “Friday night was for “BOYS ONLY, and Gammy – you’re a girl.”

A Happy PaPaw!

He might only be five years old, but he’s figured out that boys and girls are different. It’s a concept that many adults are having a hard time with nowadays. God created man from the dust of the earth (Genesis 2:7) and after realizing that it was not good for man to be alone, He made Eve from Adam’s rib (Genesis 2:21-22) She was made as a “help meet” for Adam – she completed him! Men and women are different, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t equal in God’s sight. They just have different roles to fill. Just like God, the Father, God, the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit are all equal. They are all God – they just have different roles. We know that Christ “Who thought it not robbery to be equal with God but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:6-7) Christ willingly took the subservient role and became a man. Did that make Him less God? No! He was still 100% God, He was now just also 100% man! In I Peter 3:7, Peter calls husbands and wives “heirs together” in the grace of life. We have the same worth, it’s just that some things, Gammy can do better, and sometimes – “It’s a man’s night!”

Oh, I’m so happy that PaPaw, Mr. David, and Aiden could spend this time together, and I hope that Dianne is having as much fun being “home alone” as I am! Attending a “Monster Truck Show” is one role that I’ll just leave to the boys! God Bless, Courtney
