Helpmeet by Lola Babalola

 

The question is, are marriages made in heaven?

 

When you pick up the papers to read, you are fed with stories and pictures of marriages that have broken down. Some have been marries for a while, some for far much longer. It is those long marriages of twenty plus years that sadden me. A friend of mine who had been married for twenty four years walked away and I felt really bad. If you had stuck with for that long, why walk now? Then you read about the wife killing the husband, do you stick an association where mutual respect has been downgraded to zero? I know a young woman who says she really does not think marriage is meant for her, because she could not be sure the gentleman of today might not turn out a monster later. Why do people get married and picking from my guest today, what role is the woman to play? I do remember that the Lord is reputed to have said he He was creating a helpmeet for the man. HELPMEET. That was the word that struck me when I saw the book. It resonated with me. It is not a book for Christians alone but for women of all ages, creed and race. That was what I found comforting. I did not have to be of a particular faith. I could read it as a manual, a guide, letit be my friend on a lonely confused night.

One hundred and forty five pages of inspirational and intuitive sensing of the role of the woman in this wonderful creation.

The cover art was also interesting as it spokes volumes, the deep roots of life together on a journey holding hands and connecting.

It is a fairly long read, but I am sure you will not notice as I had to restrain myself from asking endless questions.
