#SoCS April 20/19 – Ribs

Linda’s #SoCS prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rib.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “rib”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

I started thinking about this… and what came to mind was Adam and Eve.

So, apparently Eve, aka Woman, was created from one of Adam’s ribs… thereby making her a suitable helper for Man…

But if you dig deeper there are quotes in the bible that suggest that it was not just his rib, but possibly more than a bone, maybe a side of Adam, that was used to create Eve.

So, not a suitable helper as such but really an equal companion that would conmplete Man

Woman was created to be “beside” man, not beneath or above him. In salvation, man is no more “worthy” and woman is no less a citizen of God’s kingdom. “There is neither . . . male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”

Wikipedia

I like that thought. It has been in my mind since I wrote a flash yesterday about gender at birth, and the so called importance of a male baby within our Indian communities, and others out there.

Why? Why is that dangly genitalia so important?

It’s us women you need to actually create men nowadays. God isn’t doing his Garden of Eden magic nowadays.

Our Sikh first Guru, Guru Nanak says:

“We are born of woman, we are conceived in the womb of woman, we are engaged and married to woman. We make friendship with woman and the lineage continued because of woman. When one woman dies, we take another one, we are bound with the world through woman. Why should we talk ill of her, who gives birth to kings? The woman is born from woman; there is none without her. Only the One True Lord is without woman” 

Guru Nanak

Sure, a male was meant to continue the family name, ensuring that the bloodline carried forth for more generations, but doesn’t a daughters offspring do the same, bloodline wise, anyway?

Male or female, hair shorne or tied with ribbons, breasts or dangly bits, we are equal. We were made to be equal, whether Christian, Sikh, Muslim, Jewish… any religion.

Ain’t that the truth?

Boys and girls
Girls and boys
Essentially the same
Though given different toys

Male and female
Female and male
Yet still inequalities
A very old tale

Him and her
Her and him
Together complete
Not made on a whim

A partnership
On equal ground
As God intended
Though not what's found

Differences only
To strengthen and support
Not useless foetuses
That some choose to abort

Man and woman
Woman and man
We should stand together
That was God's plan

#SoCS April 13/19 – Lip

Linda’s #SoCS prompt for this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “lip.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “lip”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Flippin’ ‘eck Linda, you don’t ‘alf like ta throw ’em at us, eh?!

Oh look, I have already managed to add a little lip in to that flip! And again!

Well, as I type this, I am sat in our lodge for our weekend away, and we have unpacked. Hubby has gone to park the car and is no doubt grumbling on his trek back to us!

I am hoping for a long weekend of walks through nature, bonding with the family, and lots of reading time, and hopefully, no lip from the teen or tween!

I don’t hold much hope though. Even in separate rooms they are able to annoy each other, and ultimately, me too!

God help me!

See you on the other side Peeps!

Gotta update this before it’s even gone out… MAJOR lip from Lil Man a few hours after getting here… but all sorted… for now anyway!

#SoCS April 6/19

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fab.” Use it as a word or find a word beginning with “fab.” As always, use any way you’d like. Have fun!

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the prompt was icecream!

I don’t know if you have these anywhere other than the UK but here we have ice lollies called Fab!

They are a mix of strawberry and vanilla ice, dipped in chocolate and sprinkles!

Have you had one?

I must admit I am not a big fan, but the kids love them!

Fab lollies are older than me… introduced by Lyons in 1967, to coincide with the popularity of Thunderbirds, alongside another lolly called Zoom which was more rocket shaped for the boys… Apparently girls would have prefered the ‘feminine’ shape of a Fab, rather than a Zoom lolly…

Personally, the ice lolly is more my thing!

#SoCS March 30/19 – Dough – D’oh

Linda’s #SoCS Prompt this week:


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dough/d’oh.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

D’oh! Gotta love Homer Simpson!

He’s given us the best reaction phrase for when you goof up!

And that Homer also loves donuts (or doughnuts as we should really spell it!)

Do you like doughnuts?

Short’n’sweet this week!

#SoCS March 16/19 – Soul/Sole

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “soul/sole.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

A sole soul
Is a very unfortunate one
Where others have lots of company
This one tends to have none

He leads his life
In a solitary way
Not caring at all 
If it's night time or day

So if you meet one
Approach with care
And give them a smile
Or a word, if you dare
