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!
- 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.
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,
