What Do Girls Want?
This past Valentine's Day, my husband and I went to an event at our church for married couples. They provided desserts and coffee along with a program that was designed to encourage our relationship with each other. They had a band that sang all kinds of romantic love songs. I'm sure I had a grin across my face the entire time because I love love songs. At the end of the event, my husband put his arm around me as we walked out the door. I nestled myself under his arm and rested my head on his chest. He looked at me and said, "You know what I've been thinking..." I thought he had been thinking about how great his wife is or how beautiful she is or how much he loves his wife. I gazed up into his eyes and was caught off guard by the finale of his statement. Here is was: "You know what I've been thinking? I've realized why Arby's are so good in Atlanta. It's because their headquarters are located here." Arby's??!! I couldn't believe that after a romantic event he was thinking Arby's!
Isn't that just like us? We are so different from guys. Who knows what they want and how they think. I don't think I will ever understand why they can play video games all day long. And I'm sure they will never understand how most of us could talk to a brick wall. Since we are so different, it's hard to see what we were designed to want. We, as women, were designed by God to want what He wants when it comes to relationships. Sometimes that can get blurry because there are a lot of other people trying to tell you want you should want.
When it comes to relationships, what is it that you want? I would love to hear your thoughts!
