Well hello all. I have been pretty busy with life here on the ground, so it wasn’t until late this afternoon that I had a moment to survey all the mashed peas and carrots on the floor around my table. But I was grateful that my very capable daughter-in-law Heather had blown the whistle. And I was also appreciative for the many humble responses she got as well.
I would like to encourage those of you who would like to continue the discussion to move on over to my husband’s blog where he will be posting on events as they unfold. But I would like for the discussion here on femina, as regards Mrs. Palin, to be closed for now. Call it a breather.
And, as a sort of wrap up, I’d like to make a few observations. Here they are.
Whether you think it is right or not for a woman to hold office in the White House, one thing is clear, and that is that we cannot talk about it yet the way we need to. Maybe we need more prep time.
Secondly, I do not see any reason in the world why any Christian woman should be threatened by Sarah Palin. My calling as a wife and mother, my view of God’s role assignments for men and women are all the same as they were before she was nominated. Nothing has changed. She threatens none of that for me.
It is also clear to me that although many Christian women say that they have a very high view of woman’s calling, for some it appears to be a brittle veneer for what they really think about women.
So onward. I recommend you all whip up a batch of cookies and knit a bootie. Or, you can do as I am going to do, which is pour myself a glass of wine. Cheers!
