i'm coming out {six} just another one of those girls

i don't think i could help but post this here. because everyone needs to see it. 
i think it's obvious that we all eventually want to end up like this. but, how exactly? with who? that's the hard part. there's a difference between infatuation and admiration. infatuation is something that is short-lived and passionate. whereas, admiration is a respect for someone. and yet commitment is higher than both of these. 

over the past few weeks, i think i've developed a crush on tim tebow. but, as it may happen, this is somewhat of a different crush. forget the fact that tim and i are both left-handed. forget the fact that tim and i are both homeschoolers {and proud}. we are both active believers. he praises the Lord no matter what. and for me, i just can't off and say that i have a crush on tim tebow. it's a little bit more complicated than that. 

he is a Godly man. he is focused. he doesn't run off and date some random girl and then break it off just because he was done with that one. no, he has purpose. and i have purpose as well. my mom was speaking of it in the car on the way home from church: whoever tim tebow is going to marry in the next few years, she is going to be one lucky, happy girl. what, mom? you speak of it as if it can't be me? and i'm ashamed of myself for thinking something like this. i don't even know why i'm telling you guys this. 

with tim tebow, you can't jut have a crush. because tim is different. he stands out. for obvious reasons. because his is purposeful don't you have to be purposeful, too? purposeful is not walking around half-naked hanging around every guy you see. purposeful is focused. it's attentive. purposeful, in my mom's way of saying it, is walking up to tim tebow in a bridal gown. because even though you may not be the girl he's going to marry, atleast you have the right intentions. 

i'll admit it. yes, tim tebow has the same qualities that i want in my future husband. one in love with God. two submitted to authority. parents, pastor, and other figures of such. and the others aren't necessarily important, because they have to do with the physical aspect of things. 

i remember when my grandma was looking for second homes here in texas. we found one not even a block away from us. it was ideal, in great shape, and just in her price range. but we didn't get it. sure, we were upset, but didn't that mean that there was something better out there? just because we don't get the guy we want, that doesn't mean we have to throw a fit and swear off guys. because doesn't that mean that God has something better for us?

i was going to post something different today. i can't even remember what. i've been having a shortage of inspiration, but when this came to mind i just couldn't pass it up. i don't want to be just another one of those girls that wears daisy dukes in winter and allows herself to be handled by who-knows what type of guy. i can't be just another one of those girls who has a crush on tim tebow just because he's good looking. i have to have purpose in this. because, after all, he does.
