Does your diet revolve around meat and potatoes? I have been married to a vegetarian for nearly 44 years but I know we are in the minority. Our son is "carnivore man style"; meat makes his world go around and he keeps an ample supply of barbecue sauce in the family refrigerator. Spare ribs are naked until a master chef bastes them in seasoning and sauce. "Howdy, neighbor! Ya' got any ribs you can spare?"
God knew Adam's physical makeup; as his creator, He held the x-ray and gazed at a rib. Adam could spare one from his rib cage and admire the transformation from bone to bride. "So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh at that place. And the Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man (Genesis 2:21-22 NAS)."
The removal of a spare rib was no great loss; Adam delighted in the exchange. "And the man said, 'This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man (Genesis 2:23 NAS)." His search for a helpmate ended; two became one and the twinkle in his eye planted seeds to our family tree. Ladies, if your husband frequently requests take-out barbecue ribs, humor him and sacrifice your craving for pizza. He cannot explain his hunger but you have a hunch he has love to spare!
