Quick post before going out to drink some Margaritas and eat dinner outside on this gorgeous night in Nashville!
Ladies, wait for a man who cherishes you. Don’t settle for less. You are such a treasure and deserve to be treated as such.
I will remind you daily of your beauty.
I promise to be there on the days you feel like quitting on your dreams, always be your support and someone you can count on to love you through your faults & weaknesses.” – written by a gentleman to his fiancee
Beautiful huh? What woman wouldn’t want to hear that right?
That’s what you deserve ladies.
One of the greatest treasures Blessed John Paul II left to the world is his book -Theology of the Body. In it, he talks about the human person and explains how God is made manifested through humanity. Theology of the Body delves into what it truly means to be a man and woman, and how we should live out our masculinity and femininity in accords with how God created us. If we yearn to be the best version of ourselves, then we must embrace the unique qualities of our gender. To do this we must go back to the very beginning when God created us. Genesis 1:27 tells us, God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
God created us out of love, for us to love and be loved. The way in which this love is expressed and revealed is different for men and women, which is how God in His infinite wisdom designed it to be. And it is the unique characteristics of men and women that enable this love to come to fruition. We exist to complement one another. In Theology of the Body, John Paul II tells us that we are called to exist as a gift for one another. He describes this gift as a sincere gift of self, and it is only when we lay down our life for another in this way that we will experience genuine fulfillment.
Let us strive to live out John Paul II’s words, for only then will we find lasting happiness. Who’s in?
Please note: if a man has made mistakes (God is always forgiving and mercy His greatest attribute), wait for one who will recommit himself to purity. And OF COURSE, vice versa.
