Men ... Ugh.

I read this statement and it has stuck with me for a few weeks now:
"Normal men never get too old to eye women."

No, I was not reading Cosmopolitan.

It was a statement in that Beth Moore book that's messin' with my brain right now. She is one smart cookie.

Um ... I think I already knew this statement was true. I mean, come on. We're not idiots. Women are pretty intuitive.

I would say that women are more in tune to men's brains than men are.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure of it.

Let's think about this for a minute.

If this statement is true, and I do believe it is, then who is the more powerful gender?

A woman has more power than she thinks.

Women are men's Achille's heel.

Remember the Garden of Eden? And, we could think of countless stories where men have given up quite a bit just to be with a woman.

Sometimes, I really feel sorry for men. They've got it tough. Really, they do. A Christian man battles his thoughts and mind constantly.

We can't be naive and believe that the statement is not true.

Beau and I have talked about this before.

Let's face it ... there are lots of beautiful women (and men) out there and, honestly, I can appreciate their beauty for a split second before I just want to move myself to another room away from them so that I'll look better. And, that's where it ends for me ... "She/he's attractive. Yay. Good for them." And, I am totally OK with Beau thinking the same.

But, that's where it has to end. And, that's where most men have the problem.

Maybe if men realized that women are really the ones in control, there would be a change in their thinking.

I know part of this is the way God created them. I get that. Women wouldn't want it any other way.

But, dang ... I definitely want my man to only have eyes for me.

He says he does.

And, I believe him.

Boy, do love this man. He's the best (said in my best Nacho Libre voice).

Awwww... Great picture of you two. For some reason, the lyrics to Stand By Your Man are now running through my head... because of the opening line, I'm sure. Sometimes it's hard to be a woman... ;)
