Celebratiing 40 years as a wife and a mother to six children, and a grandmother to 14 grand children with more to come, gives Miriam the nudge to speak out.
A fatherless child at 2, raised by the forceful prop of extended families to a single mother, I grew up having no concept of a daughter/father/daughter relationship. Calling God my father at prayer times in church was meaningless until I met Jesus personally at 33, 31 years ago. Developing that relationship with God was difficult, but it did open my eyes to relationships created by God which I had to learn with my husband and children and the church - thus this book.
This addition comes with personal experience and revelatory twist that seeks to put divine order in the divine purpose of the Creation of human kind -"So God created man in Hisownimage; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created" (Genesis 1:27). This oneness of male and female in the man God created in His image, separated by a rib surgery, fully formed in Eve, gave Adam a new revelation of himself. That he is no longer alone, but the one become two and the two shall become one. God's order in the Marriage relationship models the Church and Jesus Christ relationship, viz: "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."32This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5: 31-32).
