Man, I was just reading Kendra's blog, and I came across this cool thought:

Do you ever wonder sometimes why girls cradle little babies in their arms when they're young? Have you ever wondered why that annoying little boy down the street keeps aiming his little cap-gun at you and lettin' go?

That's the way God made us.

That sums up the roles of men and women.

Women were made to be good mothers and wives, and men were made to be protecters of their family.

Just think about God's design in that for a while, and next time that annoying little brat down the street starts shooting at you, just appreaciate God making him that way!

Give me your thought on this.


p.s. this is a 'stall post' for Nick. He's going to post soon.

I have eight brothers and two sisters, and from what I've observed yes, that's very true. Little girls love to nurture, and little boys love to protect. Although I believe God did create us this way, there are some differences like with personalities. For example, I've always been a "tomboy", never that into dolls and tea parties and such, I do have a nurturing instinct. When I see a small baby crying, or when one of my little brothers scrapes their knee, I have to go and immediately help, and comfort them.
Okay, I'll stop blabbering about now. What I meant to say : yes, God made girls with the instinct(for lack of a better word) to nurture, comfort, and encourage. He made guys with a knight-in-shining-armor-protecter-type instincts. Although not all girls are as girly, and emotional, and nurturing as others, and not all guys are as fierce and protective. The reason I think is partly personality, and partly how the child was raised. That's just my(humble) opinion.
Interesting subject though :)

I agree with you, LocaChica :)I've never really loved playing with dolls or doing my hair or dressing up or anything, but when I see a little kid get hurt I go over to them, tell them they're OK and do whatever I can to mke them feel better... so I guess we're a lot alike on that matter!! :)

You got it's so true. I have always wondered why it is so hard for people to figure that out...? To add to what LocaChica said, I do think personality can affect how these things are portrayed in an individual. Even when you run into a person that just doesn't seem to have that God-given instinct, they do have it, they just have their own way of showing/using it--usually in a way we don't look for, which would cause us to overlook it. Does that make sense?

I always kind of wondered why my brothers love shooting their dart guns at me and my other sisters--you know, since they are supposed to be practicing protecting ladies, not shooting them--maybe they think they need to practice their aim, or it's probably just a sibling rivalry thing. :)

That is very true. I have a younger sister and a younger brother. I have seen this fact of God's creation at work a lot!

Absolutely true! I've 4 sisters and 2 brothers, and believe me, I've felt the darts AND the band-aids. It's all the way that God made us! Totally amazing!
