Femininity is a gift God has designed women with that contrasts the design of men. There are differences in gender that are very distinct and those differences play a role in marriage.
I grew up with a twin brother as well as a rough-edged family environment. We played outside all of the time, we camped, fished, and enjoyed getting dirty. I was a “Tom-Boy” – embracing a tough side that had nothing to do with make-up, accessories, or other girly things.
Now that I am a wife, I realize that my husband delights in my femininity. When I take the time to present myself in a beautifully delicate way he feels honored to be my husband. This does not mean that the days I neglect my appearance he loves me any less… rather my ability to embrace femininity shows him that I respect our differences as husband and wife, male and female.
I am learning that there are certain ways I can embrace my femininity, such as closing the bathroom door when I go to the bathroom, having self-control with my bodily functions, and try a little more with my physical appearance… even it I am just going to be hanging out with my husband!
What are some ways you will try to embrace your femininity this week?
