So tough, that I sought approval from my husband to write about it. You see, we are going to speak frankly about s-e-x. Yes, you heard me. This particular post is intended for the single ladies. this old lady( think of me like a beloved aunt here thinks she has some wisdom,that should be put to good, practical use and not go to waste.
I notice the Church(all all denominations included)focuses the "wait for marriage" messages on the teens, while young,single adults don't hear anything. Perhaps that is why God prompted me to share my tale. (take one for the team,if you will)
Waiting for marriage was commanded by God for very real reasons. He didn't simply pull something out of a hat and say "Yes, this should "or shalt" be one of the 10." Now that I've been through it all I I have some understanding as to why we are intended to wait. Here is my story: (Dang boy, sharing this is scary for me.)
I started dating bachelor number one when I was 24 One thing led to another, and I lost my virginity at the age of 24. Let's be frank I didn't "lose" anything I served it up on a platter
Of course we eventually broke up. Then along came bachelor number two who epitomizes the thinking/belief that "hurt people hurt people". After having already been intimate once. it was easier to do it the second time. Eventually I ran far away from bachelor number two.
Finally I met the man who was to become my husband. As happened the last time when you’ve already done it once or twice it becomes easier to do it again Tom"DA bomb"and I got married when I was 34 years old. We missed out on that sweet season of waiting and eager anticipation. .
Remember and hold tight to the special reasons they tell you to wait back in your days in youth group. And have faith and trust that God knows what he is doing His plan for you is always way better than your own plan . Amen?

Prior to my stroke I was I was a happily married mother of one 10 year old son,, I had a job enjoyed, I was a runner (I had just completed my first half marathon). Then. My stroke. I could no longer run. or walk for that matter my amazing husband would become my caretaker and I was nowhis patient. Which is not what I wanted to be to him. At one point my son learned I might not live through the night so he pulled away from me to protect himself. He was also at the age where boys need to distance themselves from their moms(tween years... such good times!). All of this broke my heart I did not know who I was anymore. My occupational and physical therapists and doctors all told told me I had to make become a new person and create a new life. Hearing that made me angry because I loved my life and I liked who I was before my stroke
A long time believer, I was angry with God that this happened I wanted to know why. I had been faithful to Him for so many years I did not understand why he was not faithful back to me. I finally came to the conclusion that the l"why"does not have to matter. God will use all things for his purpose that's all that
need to care about that this will serve his purpose as long as it brings him glory in some way shape or form I could power through it. I
I have decided to launch a ministry praying with people in hospitals and nursing homes.
