Somehow Tuesday came up and I was not prepared. Forgive me. :) I will try to type something coherent up right now. And, go!
Who is a great example of masculinity in your life
(father, brother, uncle, priest, etc)?
What is it about them that you love?
Today we are talking about masculinity! [See prompt to the right.]
I have some wonderful men in my life. All have qualities that I find to be masculine in one way or the other.
My dad loves to work with his hands, doing different projects around the house., getting dirty and working hard to make things beautiful.
I have an uncle who is in the military... and there is just something about being in the military (whether you are a man or a woman) that is both so masculine and feminine. To love and protect your country with honor is awesome. To see my uncle salute the flag, fellows soldiers, or wear his uniform brings such pride to my heart.
My brother and some other uncles are some of the most silly and funny people I know. There is something to be said for not taking life too seriously! Being able to laugh and make jokes is something that I really find appealing.
And of course, there are friends and other men I know who exhibit their masculinity by being confident in who the Lord has called them to be. Whether that is through their job, being a husband a priest, friend, brother (as in sibling, but could be religious brother, too!). They are unwavering in who they should be no matter where they are or what they are doing. Their actions and behavior and love they have for the people in their life reflects the image of God so very much, even if they don't even realize it. They are strong, confident, kind, fight for what they want and what they believe in, respectful and are willing to talk about alllllll that, too. Ya know what I mean?
When I think of a masculine man... that's what I think of. Nothing specific, really. But, bits and pieces of those things, that reflect God and who He is. It's a beautiful thing.
I am sure all of you have written your posts already... and know that Morgan is hosting by now! But, if you didn't, now you know! Head on over there!! :)
Bachelorette Party Ideas
It's inevitable that we will plan our friends bachelorette parties at some point or another, but how do we make them fun without all the raunch? Give us your ideas for fun things to do with a bridal party without all the crazy.
Why Not Both?
We've been hearing a lot that "married people and single people can't relate to one another." What is your perspective on this? In what way can we bridge the gap between singles and marrieds?
(Singles and marrieds perspectives welcome, of course!)
Single Life Bucket List
What are those things that you want to do before you get married (or enter the religious life)? Is there anything that you are excited to do, accomplish, etc before engagement, marriage and babies come along? Even if you feel that you've done everything you wanted to do pre-marriage, dig deeper and see if there isn't anything you'd like to do!
