"Thoughts on Daughters...and Sons"

by Greg Landry

"I tear-up every time I get email from one of my homeschool science students this semester. Why? There's a line at the bottom of all her email messages that says...
"A girl needs to be so lost in God, that the guy
is going to have to seek HIM to find her!"
Like many of you, we have daughters...We have impressed upon them over the years that the kind of guy they want to spend the rest of their lives with...the guy God has for them, is the kind of guy who will be attracted to a girl who is "lost in God".
He's the guy who will be attracted to a young lady who loves the Lord with all her heart, soul, mind, and strength. A young lady whose thoughts, words, actions, and dress are pure. A young lady who is "in the world, but not of the world".
Wait for the guy who pursues you, the kind of who brings out the best in you and makes you want to be a better woman..
Wait for the guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot..
Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead and wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats..
Wait for the guy who holds your hand in front of his friends and thinks you're just a pretty without makeup..
Wait for the guy who turns to his friends and says, "that's her"..
Wait for the guy who praises God for you and encourages you in your daily walk..
..and most importantly, wait for the guy who is more in love with God than with you."
Have a wonderful day, all ye daughters of the King! :)
(And everyone else...)

That was SO beautiful, Kayla!!!! It really meant alot to me! Thank you! I totally and wholeheartedly agree..."Wait for the man who kisses your forehead and wants to show you off to the world when your in sweats!" I have always told my Mama, that my man would love me and think me the most beautiful whn working, hair a mess and all! You know, that's just the way, Jesus looked at you and I! He saw us in our sin and he LOVED us! He didn't go and look for the "make-up" plastered or, calssic dressed women...He chose us! Beautiful!

I LOVE this post!!!!!!!! Absolutely, love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a lovely day, Kayla!
