In Unison to Accomplish a Goal

"As unto the bow the cord is,
So unto the man is woman;
Though she bends him, she obeys him,
Though she draws him, yet she follows;
Useless each without the other!"

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

And so a man and wife are become one, working together to aim their arrows- their children (Ps. 127)- toward the mark YHWH has set for them. What a powerful weapon in YHWH's hands!
 
-This is a favorite poem that I had actually forgotten about, until I listened to a Vision Forum CD (I don't remember the name at the moment) with Michelle. There are so many Scriptural lessons that can be drawn from the picture of a bow and cord!
