Willingness to die for her worth
Ephesians Five 15 thru 20
21 Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22 Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of his wife just as Christ is head of the church, he himself the savior of the body. 24 As the church is subordinate to Christ, so wives should be subordinate to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and handed himself over for her 26 to sanctify her, cleansing her by the bath of water with the word, 27 that he might present to himself the church in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
I watch my little girl my one and only female child born today in the hospital of Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Virginia some 38 years ago. I exclaimed, “she has bow legs just like me.” When you have a child it is an amazing facet of being one with our Lord yet not fully static like your husband and wife should be. We ultimately have to give our children to the Lord allowing them the freedom to wander the earth and find their own way of serving God at least that is what our hope is. We teach forgiveness and learn that historical facts create situations that only God can heal and we pray today for all of our children as we do often aloud in our prayer of forgiveness recited each day.
What I have learned comes from surrendering to the word of God a bond that husband and wife should remain in at all times allowing the head of the church to be our guide praying that we can present ourselves as something that continues to sanctify her keeping her clean both by water baptism to practicing the word of God listened to each day as we embody what it means to join names and be one in all things. We seek the nourishment of Jesus’s body and blood each and every day hoping that by example mercy will always come to play a melody so sweet that in music we can be released to openly pray living the reverence of Christ placing God first each and every day. Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Prayers for our children Gabriel, Julian, Alexandra, Jeffrey and Allen and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Silence for the prayers of others. CORO-19 prayers globally. Holy Spirit and St Joseph CC & Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Willingness to die for her worth**
In Christ’s reverence subordinate be
Lord calls us each in Him to be free
Husband and wives act accordingly
Giving to the Lord as one Spirit we see
Head is husband as called
Body of the Savior he enthralls
Church’s head subordinate to Christ
So too woman everything to husband as the wife
Wives love dearly husbands
Willingness to die for her worth
Word of God cleansed her sanctified
Splendor given to the Church
No wrinkle no spots
Holy without fight
Blemish free taught
As One the right
