Okay, I know it’s not exactly a topic you talk about openly on the old internet, especially if you don’t want to attract the wrong kind of reader, but I need some sage advice about something of a “married nature.” Not for me, (that’s what they all say, right?) I assure you.
We have a young Christian couple in our church who are to be married on February 29th. He is our youth pastor and she is the daughter of one of our missionaries, they are in their early 20’s and have both remained “pure” for their wedding day, which is an incredibly awesome thing, if you ask me. During their courtship, they have not even kissed or been alone together – they have always had a chaperone. (Don’t even start with how “old-fashioned” this sounds – it has probably been what has helped them to stay “pure”). I have been asked to give a devotion at her personal bridal shower (which is a lingerie shower) about the beauty of married you-know-what. (you do, don’t you?)
(Insert screeching tires sound here). Me? give a devotion about that? I’ve taught many a Sunday School lesson, women and children — I’ve sung many a song before many an audience…but now you want me to give an intimate devotion for a small group of married woman about something so personal? I don’t even know where to begin – I’m too afraid to google it, because Heaven only knows what I’ll encounter. So I’m turning to you, because I know that you are all so much smarter than I am. Give me some ideas – I’ve got my Bible and Strongs Concordance handy…but I need some direction. Anyone? Anyone? I will be giving the devotion on Tuesday the 26th, so it doesn’t give me a TON of time, either.
And while we are on the subject of advice…what do I do with this hair?
Believe it or not, this was taken on a good day. it’s usually much more matted.
And for the sake of completeness (because all things come in threes) a final question. Why do my feedburner stats now show 30 less subscribers than yesterday? (yeah, I watch that stuff) And why are there no google subscribers any longer? Do I not thrill you anymore? Is the love gone? What?
I’m just curious about these things.
