What Single Women Want You To Know

I have some single friends who took the time to write up a list of things they'd like married women to know about them. I am posting these anonymously - because this is more about listening and learning - (maybe even chuckling because you know you have said some of these things) - than it is about the writers (yes, there was a group of writers - this is coming from multiple real life sources at my church).

Top Myths About Being Single...

We’re missing out on an intimate relationship.
We don’t feel contentment, joy or fulfillment in life.
We don’t have anything in common with married people.
We should be more flexible because we have more time.
Being single means we are lonely.
All we ever think about is being married.
We’re always looking for a mate.

Top Words of Encouragement or Top Things Singles Love to Hear
(This list is just for a laugh. We really don’t mind these words of encouragement because we know you love us and want the best for us!! After all, we have found ourselves saying them to each other!!)

Okay, so I know this guy and I think he could be the one for you.
• Sometimes stated as: Okay, so I know a friend of a friend of a friend and I think he could be the one for you.
At least you get to decide how to spend your money (or time). You don’t have to answer to anyone.
• Sometimes stated as: Make sure you buy whatever you want before you get married, because once you are married, you won’t be allowed to.
It could be worse. You could be unhappily married.
Have you ever thought you might be too picky?
So, do you think you have the gift of being single?
Have you considered
As soon as you learn to be content where you are, God will bring the person into your life.

The Breakdown...
Our true identity is not found in whether we’re single or married. Although others might define it this way, God has a definition according to His Word. Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

We can find true contentment when God is the center of our lives. Phil 4:11 states, “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”

Whether single or married, we might feel lonely but our emotions can change when we focus on and believe the truth: “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you,” Hebrews 13:5b. God desires us to seek Him first so we can develop a deeper and more intimate relationship with Him. The meaning of life is in knowing God and being satisfied as a result of this awesome relationship. It can happen: satisfied singles say so!

And I add a hearty Amen to my single sisters in Christ. Walk with the King!

How did the scrapbooking go today? That's pretty cool that you guys can work on it together! How do you get them involved? Do they just watch, or do you have them making their own books? I'd like to work on mine more often at home, but find it hard to balance when the kids are up...
