When someone loves you…

Standard

Once upon a time, I found this cute list of things little kids said about Love.  I think their simplicity is so precious… and sometimes humorous.  We could benefit from some of these reminders about how to really love someone.  I want to grow old with my husband, and at the end, to feel that I have loved really well.  I don’t believe in keeping regrets.  I leave the past alone.  But taken as a whole, I want to feel that I’ve loved with all my heart and been loved in return.

When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.  You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.  Billy age 4

Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.  Karl- age 5

Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French Fries without making them give you any of theirs.  Chrissie- age 6

Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.  Terri- age 4

Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is right.  Danny- age 7

Love is when you kiss all the time.  Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.  Emily- age 8

Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.  Bobby- age 7

If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend you hate.  Nikko- age 6

Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it every day.  Noelle- age 7

Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.  Tommy- age 6

Mommy loves me more than anybody.  You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.  Clare- age 6

Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.  Elaine- age 5

Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Brad Pitt.  Chris- age 7 (This one made me laugh.)

Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.  Marianne- age 4

I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.  Lauren- age 4

When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.  Karen- age 6

You really shouldn’t say “I love you” unless you mean it.  But if you mean it, you should say it a lot.  People forget.  Jessica- age 8

This weekend, make a concerted, focused effort to tell someone you love them.  You might think that they should already know, but tell them anyways.  Say it first, don’t wait for them to say it to you.  And while you’re at it Guys, here’s a tip for you:  She wants hear WHY you love her too.  It makes the “I love you” special instead of generic.  Make an effort to love well.

Advertencia para las mujeres que utilizan sus pechos para llamar la atención

Standard

Esta es una anécdota que espero vaya a dejar en claro algo para todas aquellas mujeres que utilizan sus pechos para llamar la atención.

Hace algunos años en los días de nuestro ministerio juvenil, asistíamos a muchísimo a obras de teatro colegiales, recuerdo una obra en particular. Antes de la obra, yo estaba en el vestíbulo del teatro, estaba lloviendo y esperaba a mi esposo en la puerta; mientras yo miraba a la gente en el vestíbulo, me percaté de una chica bonita que también esperaba en la puerta. Tal vez tenía ella unos dieciséis años, era bastante voluptuosa, llevaba una blusa muy corta que mostraba más de lo que cubría, se mostraba su vientre y sus pantalones estaban muy bajos en sus caderas. Ella sonreía a su mismo reflejo en la puerta de vidrio.

De lo que ella no se percató, fue que a su izquierda estaba un hombre mayor bastante feo, que la miraba de arriba abajo con la mirada más vil que su rostro pudiera dar, casi comiéndosela con los ojos, y mientras ella soñaba con el chico guapo de su clase de matemáticas, el tipo feo tenía en su mente pensamientos sucios de ella.  Sentí asco.

Este es el punto:

Crees que usando tu cuerpo vas a llamar la atención de un chico como este: 

PERO, en realidad tienes mayor probabilidad de llamar la atención de esto: 

Es lógico, hay muuuuuuuuchos más tipos horribles y solteros disponibles, a los que el corazón les palpita por una chica como tú que solteros guapos e inteligentes, y aunque Brat Pitt te viera  el súper sexy cuerpo que tienes, ¿dejaría a su otra chica por ti?

Entonces señoras y señoritas: sé que se sienten tentadas a “usar lo que tienen” para llamar la atención, pero caigan en cuenta que esa “carnada” que utilizan, determina el tipo de “pez” que atraparán: Si usan sus pechos para atraer a los hombres, entonces solo atraparán hombres que les gusta mirar los pechos de las mujeres, es bastante simple. Y ese no es el tipo de hombre que quieren, incluso si luciera como Brad Pitt.

No todos los tipos de atenciones son iguales. Guarda ese maravilloso busto para el hombre que atraigas con tu mente brillante,  tu conversación inteligente y tu dulce corazón.  Así cuando envejezcan juntos (y ambos sean menos atractivos) todavía él valorará tu mente, tu corazón y tu conversación, y te amará por eso. Vale la pena pescarlo con la carnada apropiada.

A warning for women who use their boobs to get attention

Standard

This is a little story that I hope will clarify something for all those women who use their boobs to get attention.

Many years ago in our days of youth ministry we attended dozens of high school plays.  One sticks out in my mind.  After the play, I was standing in the packed lobby of the school theater.  It was raining and my husband had run out to the parking lot to pull up the car for me.  As I waited, I indulged in a little people watching.  There was a very pretty young girl also waiting at the door.  She was probably about 16 years old, very chesty and wearing a top that showed more than it covered.  Her belly was showing and her low riders were riding millimeters above where her underwear should have been.  She was smiling dreamily at her reflection in the glass.

What she didn’t notice was a really crusty old man standing at her left.  He was looking her up and down with the most vile, ogling look on his face.  While she was day dreaming about that cute guy in her Algebra class, some nasty guy was sexing her up in his mind.  I’m pretty sure I threw up in my mouth.

Here’s the point, when you use your body to get a guy…

You THINK this is who you will attract:

But in reality, you have a better chance of attracting this:

It’s just logistics.  There are waaaaay more nasty guys out there then there are straight, single, heart throbs just waiting around for a girl like you.  And even if Brad Pitt DID see your hot bod, would he dump that other woman for you?

So Girls and Women, I know you are tempted “to use what you got”.  But please be aware that the bait you use determines the type of fish you’ll catch.  If you use your boobs to attract men, you will only attract men who like to look at women’s boobs.  It’s plain and simple.  And that’s not the kind of guy you really want… even if he does look like Brad Pitt.

Not all attention is equal.  Save those awesome boobs for the man that you caught with your brilliant mind and witty conversation and kind heart.  Then when you’re both old and grey (and less perky than you used to be), he’ll still appreciate your heart, mind and conversation and still love you for them.  It’s worth it to fish with the right kind of bait.
