OK, enough with the submission series. I hope that I have given y’all something to think and pray about. If nothing else, I hope you will give God room to talk to you about the concept of submission and take some time to talk with your husband so that you understand each other’s beliefs (and hopefully can agree on a few things).

Just a final word picture … (and a picture too)
I like the image of a dancing couple to explain marriage (I know, I know, they’re on skates, but you see they are “ice dancing”). The husband is leading, but the couple is a wonderful team. As they practice and get better they are learning to communicate, plan, work together, and generally enjoy the dance (yes, sometimes they get their toes stepped on, but that’s a part of learning to dance together). They play on each other’s strengths and cover each other’s weaknesses. I think also it has implications in how they represent Christ to the world. They are offering a picture of grace and harmony, of humility and service.
I am a dancer. I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living … Martha Graham
