Ladies & Gentlemen!

There’s nothing that grabs my attention more then a gentleman! I love doors being held open for me, a seat offered on a bus or train & courteous gestures of chivalry!

You see I love being treated like a lady!  I so admire the courage, thoughtfulness & the self sacrifice of the men who gift these chivalrous behaviors.

Welcome my friend! I’m so glad you have joined me here for our cuppa & reflection together. Grab your favorite beverage & treat, pull up a chair & we’ll get started…

Gentlemanly behavior melts my heart because it’s a man putting a woman first! It is considerate, kind, thoughtful, sacrificial & honoring!

My late husband, as well as my present hubby Steve both caught my attention with their quiet, gentle & considerate ways of gentlemanly behavior.

The definition of a gentleman is a courageous, honorable, chivalrous & courteous man. 

Many years ago when my daughters were in their teens, while traveling home from extra curricula activities, the topic of gentlemanly behavior arose. My second born asked who I thought was a good example of the perfect gentleman.

This was easy to answer, as there is only one perfect gentleman who has walked this earth & He is a thorough gentleman to all!

I explained…

  • He is courageous,
  • He is honorable,
  • He is courteous
  • He is attentive,
  • He is patient,
  • Is never forceful but always gentle,
  • His kindness abounds,
  • He has made the ultimate self sacrifice,
  • His chivalry is beyond measure…

An example of this is seen in His following words;

“I stand at the door [of each heart] & knock, whoever hears My voice & opens the door [of their heart] I will come in & dine with them & they with me.” said Jesus.

Revelation 3:20 

Isn’t that amazing! Jesus stands at the door of our heart, knocks & calls to us, then patiently waits for us to invite Him in! What a perfect gentleman the Son of God is!

It’s always refreshing to remember His constant gifts to us through His Spirit…thoughtful protection, peace that passes understanding, gentle guidance & direction…

And my friend, if you’re hearing that gentle knock & call on your heart today, you may enjoy reading how I responded many years ago in My story…

Until next time,

Jennifer

  1. Yes! It’s amazing when a man is a gentleman. I’m teaching my 13 year old those skills and it’s such a gift to watch him open the door for people or let a woman go first.

  2. Wonderful, Jennifer! I’m with you all the way… I was attracted to my husband Dan 57 years ago for just those reasons. The beauty of your post is in your revelation of our Lord Jesus as the perfect gentleman–the one who knocked gently at my door for many years. At age 25 I opened that door and received the best gift anyone could ever receive–Jesus, the gift who keeps giving. ❤ Blessings and love, dear friend.

  3. I always appreciate the common courtesies extended to me as they seem to be less frequent. My husband has always been a gentleman. I pray we have raised our son to not only be a gentleman but to always extend kindness and courtesy to all. It is a beautiful and easy way to make others feel special.
