Faith's Firm Foundation: Femininity

Pansies Teacup and Saucer

Femininity is a lost art, it seems.
Adding beauty to my surroundings in little ways makes me feel feminine.
A single flower in a lovely vase sitting on a lace doily.
Drinking coffee or tea from a china cup.
Cotton curtains wafting with the breeze from the window.
Little touches of beauty.
Actions can be little touches of beauty and make me feel feminine, too.
A kind word with a loving smile.
A gentle touch to a child's fevered forehead.
A hug and embrace just a little longer.
A little gift that says, "I was thinking of you."
Fostering femininity requires intentionality, I think.
Because femininity is a lost art, it seems.

Hi Wendy,
You are so right about this. I especially notice that so many young girls have lost this "art" - especially here in California. They often lack poise, manners, and a certain demure attitude. They dress "sexy" - which doesn't usually translate to "feminine." I think we need to claim the femininity that God has uniquely given us. Be WOMEN of God, in all the beautiful colors that that entails.

Your list of "feminine" things was just so precious!

Let's live a little more intentionally - I agree!

Sharon, intentionality, I agree. I think there's a lot more to be said on this subject, and I've seen the same thing here in the Midwest.
P.S. Saw on a weather news report a video of Mission Viejo's lightning show--very cool--I love thunder and lightning.

Welcome! and Thank you so much--I love hearing that you're a woman after my own heart. This subject really touches a nerve for me. Our culture is so anti-feminine, and it's easy to end up going down the river with the flow. I'm realizing that surrounding myself with these little things helps me respond more gently. and be more feminine. Funny. It's an inner thing, though, not put on the outside.
