Mrs. Orange and Mr. Apple L O V E each other. They make a good couple for numerous reasons. Mrs. Orange appreciates that fact that Mr. Apple puts up with her never-ending eMoTioNs, supports her in wanting to try new things and listens to her even when she’s talking in circles. Mr. Apple loves Mrs. Orange because she laughs at all his jokes, has a PaTienT personality, is a great mother to their kids, and enjoys helping him work in the yard. Even though they are very complementary together, they are also very different.
Mr. Apple is very predictable. Like all apples, when you peel back the first layer, there’s nothing but the same fruit underneath. What you see is what you get, pretty much to the core. It’s as simple as that. Mrs. Orange loves that about Mr. Apple.
Mrs. Orange is very COMPLEX. When you peel back the first layer of her exterior BeAUtY, there isn’t just more fruit underneath, but MANY different slices of fruit! There’s the slice that feels she could be a better housekeeper, the slice that’s striving to be a better mother, a slice for improving her figure, and of course the slice that feels intimidated by other oranges. There are just a lot of sections of “stuff” under her orange peel, and to be HonEsT, mostly stuff that Mr. Apple doesn’t understand! Mrs. Orange knows that sometimes it is easier on both her and Mr. Apple if she just calls up her friends and works through some of her more troubling segments. Mr. Apple isn’t bothered by this fact, and takes CoMfORT in knowing God intended it to be that way.
Even though Mr. Apple and Mrs. Orange think and feel completely different, they serve a UniQUe purpose in their well-balanced relationship. They acknowledge their differences, and because of that, make a GreAt Pair when sharing their fruit basket!
