Wisdom From the World
“I blame my mother for my poor sex life. All she told me was, “The man goes on top and the woman underneath.” For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds.” – Joan Rivers
“The sexiest thing a man can do to his woman is crawl inside her mind and make her imagination run wild.” – Anonymous
“With the creation of Eve, Adam now had someone who, like him was imperfect, and thus needed his love as much as he needed hers. He had someone whose life he could touch, a being whose heart he could touch, a being whose heart was made of flesh and not of perfection. Someone who made him feel that his existence actually made a difference to her, a being who needed to be held and kept warm. This made Adam feel necessary and cured the pangs of loneliness. – Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
Wisdom From the Word
“God spoke “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature so they can be responsible for the fish of the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle,
And, yes, Earth itself,
And every animal that moves on the face of Earth.”
God created human beings;
He created them godlike,
Reflecting God’s nature.
He created them male and female.
God blessed them:
“Prosper! Reproduce! Fill earth! Take charge!” – Genesis 1:26-28 (The Message)
“God said, “It’s not good for the Man to be alone; I’ll make him a helper, a companion…God put the Man into a deep sleep. As he slept, He removed one of his ribs and replaced it with flesh. God then used the rib that he had taken from man to make Woman and presented her to the Man.
The Man said,
“Finally! Bone of my bone,
Flesh of my flesh!
Name her Woman
For she was made from Man.”
Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and cleaves to his wife. They become one flesh.
The two of them, the Man and his Wife, were naked, but felt no shame.” – Genesis 2:18,21,22 (The Message)
Keep Me Real, Lord!
“Lord, you made man and woman and you declared, “it was good”. In the midst of all the things I seem to value, help me to make my intimate connection with my spouse something that I anticipate and make a priority.
Remind me that I don’t have to fit anyone else’s standard in order to be loved. Thank you for our precious little one, yet help me remember that the first baby in our marriage is our “US”, our connection. Help me celebrate with gratitude and joy our intimate relationship.”
