My Latest Shpiel

O.K. Since this is a "family friendly, " G rated posting, I have to be care what words and such I use so as to not attract unwanted visitors. Hubs and I have been visiting a new church start where it just so happens that they started a new series called Undercover the first week we visited.

It was so great that first week that I told J that I needed to go back and hear more. Now the S to the E to the X is something that all married couples ought to be dealing with on a regular basis and it is extremely important, but in most Christian circles it is still swept under the covers (hence the series name). I'm not saying that this guy is the best preacher that I've ever heard...actually he is raw and real and human, and that actually makes me like him more. The way he biblically and humorously addresses such an important and everpresent topic speaks right to me.

Hey, I'm just being honest, but after nearly 6 years of marriage, one child and two enormous life changes (Katrina and the unspeakable one I'm currently in the middle of), the "S" word is barely in my vocabulary much less marriage...And that's just sad. The enemy comes to steal kill and destroy, but Christ came so that we could have life! And get this...even more ABUNDANT life. I'd say "being married" (catch me on that one) is part of that abundant life. He gave us so many blessings, why this....ABUNDANCE!

So, if you have been around me lately and you are of the female persuasion, you've already heard my reminders and such about being there fro your man...If not, or even still, go to the website and click on the two most recent "sermons" in the new series Undercover.

(Anyone else notice I'm terrible at using quotation marks? Yeah. O.K. Anyone else notice I've given you ample opportunity to link to these "sermons")

Seriously, as a married person I can not stress to you how important being reminded about this "stuff" is. I said to Hubs that people pay good money to go to counseling for this stuff and he is just telling it like it is.

Go Here. And revive your marriage.

I'll make sure Geoff doesn't see this post on your blog. He's worried if we have a baby things will dry up in that department. I can happily report that over four years into marriage, that department so far has never been better (and it wasn't bad to start with)... I might check out the sermons though.

been wondering where you guys have been. we miss you, certainly, but want you to be where God wants you. glad the series is going is certainly an important topic.
