The Sun and the Moon

The ride home tonight got me thinking. In a relationship I think the man is supposed to be like the sun, and the woman like moon. Both are needed, both are necessary, but one can't exist without the other. The mans light should shine so bright that it reflects on his woman. The man was made to toil and till the earth during the day. Traditionally the woman is the gentle spirit, strong and steady like the moon. "She gets up while it is still night" "and her lamp does not go out at night." (Proverbs 31) During the day the man hides his lady away, and protects her from the toil of the day. At night he lets her shine in all her glory, and together they light up the night sky. All the children shine because of the sun and the moon. When one is taking out of the equation, if there is no sun or moon, the stars are there but they don't shine like they're supposed to. When the sun and the moon are in perfect sync, all is right with the world. This discussion could go on forever, you could talk about the rain and thunderstorms and how they relate to the trials and tribulation that any couple must endure. Just thinking about everything makes you consider how vast God is, and how everything he created has a purpose. God doesn't make things just because, everything is connected and everything has meaning.

Just a few of the thoughts swirling around in my head.
