The Wedding and After

Passion is at its most pure when it’s unleashed after remaining pure.  Your love, totally give to another, is one of the strongest bonds in the world.  That’s one of the reasons that your purity is so valuable, and something that should be taken care of so well.

Your purity is something that makes you uniquely you.  I know that’s redundant, but it’s on purpose.  No one else is like you and no one else can give what you can give.

A lady’s purity is so valuable that men used to compete for a lady’s heart.  It was something that was desired and preferred.  Today it’s freely given away—cheapened by the casual way it is given away.

After you are married, you should enjoy your passion to the fullest.  You have committed yourselves to one another so there should be security in that bond to give yourself totally to one another—nothing held back, nothing kept away, nothing to be ashamed of.

That’s the beauty of marriage.  It’s not the wedding—though there’s very little that compare with the joy of that day.  It’s not the kids—though they will be an endless source of joy.  It’s the complete trust for one another bound together by a promise to love one another no matter what.

    I think purity of the heart is something that must be pursued throughout the lifetime in order to keep a marriage strong. Kids are wonderful and amazing and one of the greatest sources of joy God has given us, but once they grow up and move out, where will the relationship be if there was no connection other than as parents? I’m so grateful for my hubby, who daily encourages me in my walk with God and is always eager to share what he’s learning. It’s a bond that goes above and beyond that of being a co-parent and I know it’s one that will remain strong long after my little sweetie has grown up and gone to a family of her own.

    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I really enjoy your blog too and look forward to your entries. We need more folks willing to take a stand for God within our society!

    @Rachel: You’re right. I don’t know how many couples get to the point where their nest is empty and wonder who that person they are living with is. Children are special– they need a lot of work, time and love, but so does your spouse. That’s why there are so many passages talking about the relationship between husband and wife, and relatively few about parenting.

    When I look that picture, I realized that I missed one thing in my married life, because I’m not a romantic guy 🙂
