Guarding Your Marriage: Let's Talk About Sex


I see you now. You look just like the woman pictured above.
Yes, I said we are going to talk about sex.
Married sex. Between a man and a woman.
The way that God intended it to be.

Side note here: I believe that sex is for married people. For a man and his wife. I believe that is the way God made us. I mean, the parts fit together don't they? They don't work any other way. Just saying.

It has been brought to my attention that some of you ladies out there are not having sex with your husbands. 
For months. 
Trust me, this is not something that you want to do.

How do I know this? 
Your man is screaming out for attention and he is talking to his friends about it. 

"It's been over nine months..." - said by the man who knew the exact date of the last time with his wife.

"It's been since our last child was born..." - said by the man with a child that is years old. 

I understand that you're not happy in your marriage, but guess what? You are causing a lot of the problem. And if you keep this up you may find that you are no longer married.

By keeping yourself from him you are opening the door for him to walk into the arms of another woman. These men are not only sharing their frustrations with other men, but soon they start sharing them with other women.

It may start innocently. 
"My wife doesn't understand me."
Yet soon those words will be met with a reassuring hug, most likely from a woman who is just trying to be a comfort to her friend.
Once this starts it is a slippery slope down into a new relationship that is unhealthy and ungodly.

You are ruining your marriage by withholding your affection from your husband.

I understand that it's messy. It's invasive. You're exhausted. You just want to go to sleep. You're cold. You just showered. You're sore from working out. Your mind is full of the eight hundred things that need done. 

You chose this man. You chose him for life. Can't you give him a few moments? Let him enjoy your body. He physically needs this. 

And there are plenty of other women out there who are willing to let him enjoy theirs. Whether physically or via pornography.

Schedule it on your calendar if you have to, get yourself in the mood and take care of him. Your marriage will be better in the long run.

  1. So very true!!! The Bible states that our body is not our own, but our mate's. When we withhold sex, we are in disobedience to God's plan for the married couple. This union brings a husband and wife closer, intimate, in more areas than the bed. Husbands also enjoy their wives initiating this time together.

    As for getting in the mood, the more you make love, the more you desire to make love. Have you considered writing a post to wives to spice up their marriage.....a clean version, that is? I am thinking that there are generations of women who do not know how, or have lost interest, in keeping the fire alive.

    There is nothing about a married couple that should be hidden. Our husbands adore us, even if we know where the inches to lose are hidden, and often married us because they love what we consider flaws.

    For too long, sex was not discussed in the church. The beauty of this union was not discussed. I believe that this silence has done more harm than good.

Small Changes: Peanut Butter and Jelly

I eat the same thing for breakfast every single day. Most people think it's weird, I just think of it as fuel to get my day started. I was never big on cereal, mostly because I don't like milk. Other than a little splash of it in my tea I don't drink it.

I start my day with an organic brown rice cake with peanut butter and jelly on it. It works for me. The peanut butter provides protein and the jelly provides the yum.

I prefer the Lundberg Farms brown rice cakes. Brown rice is a good carb, white rice is a bad carb. White rice has no nutritional value and turns to sugar in your system. Brown rice is a whole grain and is a much better choice. 
I get the lightly salted ones. I find these in the organic food section of my favorite grocery store.

Now, let's look at some peanut butter and jelly. For the peanut butter I just chose Skippy because it's a brand that everyone is familiar with. I prefer the natural peanut butters, but if you don't like the texture of them and …

It's Not A Blessing if you Had to Sin to Get it

Pretty strong words but also very true. I once heard a man say his girlfriend was, "A gift from God." 

Except she wasn't because she was still married to someone else. Glenn wiggled in and turned her head and snatched her away from her husband and children.

How dare he think God had anything to do with that.

He doesn't work that way. If you want His blessings then you need to walk closely with Him. He will never bless sin. He can't. He is unable to. Sin is what separates us from God. 

Glenn may think he is living a blessed life as he runs on emotions and feelings but nothing like this will prosper. In the end it will lead to destruction. 

It already has. The family he destroyed will never be the same. 







Small Changes: Shredded Cheese

Today we're not just talking cheese, we're talking shredded cheese. This is the time of year when everyone has a party or picnic to go to, and most of the time you need to bring a dish of some kind. Many of these dishes call for cheese.

Sidenote: I'm so in love with cheese that I have to restrict it from my diet 99% of the time. I cannot be trusted with the creamy goodness that is cheese. Colby. Cheddar. Mozzarella. Gouda. Gorgonzola. Monterey Jack. Cream. Pepper Jack. Sigh. I love cheese, but it does not love me. It tempts me ever so. Today at lunch I splurged and order chicken parm. I only ate about half of it and that should last me several months. My body works much better when I stay away from cheese and dairy in general. Though, surprisingly, ice cream does not affect me in a bad way. Hmmmm.....

Anyway, back to cheese. Many recipes call for shredded cheese and the food industry has listened and provided a myriad of choices in the shredded cheese department and they hav…
