What do You Think about Woman?

I read Renungan Harian (Indonesia Daily Devotional) this morning. It had very interesting topic. It was about the woman as one of God's creations (Genesis 2:18-23).

Every God’s creation is unique and special. He created everything with certain and special purposes. If God created first man with His fingers through the clay of the ground (Genesis 2:7) and created woman also with His fingers through the rib that He had taken from the man (Genesis 2:22), it doesn’t mean that woman is a weak creature. Physically man and woman are absolutely different. Man is created to protect woman. That is why we could see their differences physically. Although woman is a creature that is needed to be protected by man, she also has strong abilities that man doesn't have. That is why God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a suitable partner for him.” (Gen 2:18).

Do you know that woman is very easy to cry? She cries in the happiness and sadness. She can be washed but she is not from the plastic. She has 200 parts to move and to be used for many things. She can prepare food meanwhile she is doing the laundry and watching her babies/children. She can hug once time for her children, she can hug and give the comfort to her family who have broken heart or for any accidents, she can heal herself when she is sick, she can work 18 hours per day. She is soft outside but strong inside.

What I wrote above I have experienced. If I compare how many hours I and my husband work, I work more time than him. He goes to work for 8 hours per day for five days in a week. When he goes home, he will go to sleep; watching TV, sometimes going online, sometimes watching and playing with my daughter. He likes to make sandwiches for his lunch or dinner. He cleans carpets in the certain times and cut the grass when the time comes. How about me? I work for 5 hours per day for five days in a week. Preparing food for lunch or/and dinner, sometimes breakfast for whole family. I do shopping, I do the laundry and put all the clothes to their places, I clean kitchen everyday, whole the house in the certain times, taking care of my daughter when I am in home, drive her and pick her up from her school, taking care of my plants, inside and outside, going online everyday to do my duties as Managing Editor and responsible for writing course activities everyday; watching the activities between students and mentors, and give the responds for every question; replying emails from KabarIndonesia readers, helping editing and activating the articles, answering emails everyday, writing for my projects, several medias and my blogs. I also think everyday what food I will cook for the next day, how much money do I need for this and that, etc.

Yes, I know I have spent more time everyday to work than my husband. One thing that I know that he has responsibility for his whole family as a household head. God said that woman was created to complete man needs. It means, woman is the main source to fill a man needs perfectly. Man needs woman to complete and help him in many ways, woman needs man to help and protect her.

I know everybody will have different perspectives and what I have written above is not really completed. At least we have been reminded about the differences between man and woman. If we have understood about this different principles, there will no more arguments for what man and woman have to do. Each of them will know what they have to do to make them as a suitable partner like God said.

I agree when you said that a woman cries easily. I do. I easily get emotional on things.
