getting sexy on jesus

I read some things that made me think.

I know, I try to keep it at a minimum. 

I read a lot of things that are thought-provoking but this came at just the right time.

It said that true soulmates fall in love many times, but with each other.

Is that why so many marriages end? People don’t fall in love with each other again or give up because it’s easier to find someone new? In the age of disposable entertainment are we starting to treat relationships that way?

My friend Shannon wrote a post recently where she’d talked, very frankly, to her Mormon brother and his wife about their pre-marital virgin status.

Much like Shannon, it blew my mind to think of that being the first, last and only.

I don’t even buy a bike without kicking the tires first.

Then I was on a totally different subject (I’m not generally super porny girl), searching for something else altogether and WHAM! I come across this website about how to be a “good Christian couple”. I’m thinking this involves some fumbling in the dark and ridiculously coifed hair.

I was pretty shocked to read this guy’s teaching not only made sense, but could have taught a few things to some friends. There was talk about methods of keeping it within the bounds of your marriage, your responsibility to each other and how to keep insecurities out of your house.

It was fascinating.

Soulmates, Mormon sex and Christian kama sutra.

Really?

Ant point to this?

Not really. Just to ask: Why do we let the Hugh Herfers and Academy Awards and People magazine tell us what’s sexy.

They do a fine job of showing us what’s attractive.

But sexy?

Intelligence. Courage. Faithfulness. Loyalty. Laughter. Vulnerability. Passion. Spirit. Honesty.

Those are sexy to me and will be there when age takes the attractive looks.

    This is how I talk to my teens. Spare your heart, spare yourselves, don’t give yourselves away. Because they’re like me, and a piece of their heart goes with everyone they’re with.

    Protect it, don’t let it become jaded, dark, hard to reach: wait, just wait, to make sur eyou’re with someone who appreciates and cares for you.

    My new favorite quote:

    “Intelligence. Courage. Faithfulness. Loyalty. Laughter. Vulnerability. Passion. Spirit. Honesty.

    Those are sexy to me”

    I think we enter under the disillusion that if it is ” right” then it will not be “work”- when we finally get it that marriage is work- good work then maybe things will make more sense in that area.
