A good read...

Manly Dominion: In a Passive-Purple-Four-Ball World


Here is a quote from Womanly that i read today, beginning by quoting JOB 39:

"The wings of the ostrich flap joyfully, but they cannot compare with the pinions and feathers of the stork.

She lays her eggs on the ground and lets them warm in the sand,unmindful that a foot may crush them, that some wild animal may trample them.

She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers;
she cares not that her labor was in vain,

for God did not endow her with wisdom, or give her a share of good sense. (v. 12-17)

"An ostrich says why should i be bothered with my young, i have more important things to do with my life". But notice a robin-watch her-she sits patiently on her nest until her young hatch and then after they hatch-if you dare get close to her nest, she will fly overhead, shrieking and flapping-her job is to protect and nurture her young. Tragically many modern mothers resemble not the robin, but the ostrich. They birth their children and instead of personally and tenderly nurturing their young treasures, they dump them off in places where they are vunerable to being trampled on by strangers...because they have more important things to do"...page 104


Just for fun i looked up "stork" on wikipedia being that it was refered to in this passage in job as a contrast to the ostrich and found this interesting note:
"Their nests are often very large and may be used for many years.Storks were once thought to be monogamous;they tend to be attached to nests as much as partners."...HA!!!!Seems the writer of JOB knew a good bit about the contrast of these 2 birdies!!!!!!
