Companions....

"It was very beautifully observed by an ancient writer that when Adam endeavored to shift the blame of his transgression onto his wife, he did not say, 'the woman you gave to me.' No such thing—she is not counted as his goods, nor his possessions, and she is not reckoned as his servant. But he said, 'the woman you gave to be with me,' that is, to be my partner and the companion of my joys and sorrows."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
