FIXmySPOUSE is kicking it big time as we venture into the taboo topic of sex this weekend. Not sure why it is taboo, since the BIBLE tells us all about it straight from the inventor. Anyway... And I need your help! Seriously...HELP ME!!! Help me---help you. Come on.
There are 5 questions in polls set up to the RIGHT on the blog (RSS peeps go HERE) it will take seconds to finish. One is a for women, one is for men, first one is for ALL. Some you can have more than 1 answer if you want, some not. Please only take the poll if you are married or were married with the exception of the "when did you lose your virginity" question which is open to all.
They are all ANONYMOUS and can't be tracked...so there ya go. Help me with the teaching this weekend. And then please ask your spouse to do the same. I really need to track some real time data.
10.22.08 update: BLOG POLL IS CLOSED AND REMOVED. WILL GET THE STATS POSTED HERE SOON. Thanks to all for helping me out!
blessings, peace, love, and happy sex if you are married!
This was too much...threw on the computer cam to capture my daughter Joi asking about "who is this man in this picture." She didn't remember me like the picture showed. I HAD HAIR. Watch this 1 minute clip...too funny.
Aren't you glad that there are some people who "don't remember you like that"...and I am not talking about your looks! Aren't you glad that God never remembers our sins when we boldly confess them to Him?
I got a "correction" letter from someone in the congregation who didn't like that I "shared my personal life with the people in the sermon this past weekend." I did not share that I didn't have hair, but that I was a dirty, rotten, sinner in need of God's saving grace.
"Are you promoting this type of behavior?" They asked. Ummmm...yes. The behavior that: AMAZING GRACE HOW SWEET THE SOUND, THAT SAVED A WRETCH LIKE ME! I will promote that and speak about my wins and my losses and be real with the struggles I have had and currently have.
They said "I should just stick to the gospel." I did...I think The gospel was all about failure and RESTORATION...from prostitutes to tax collectors to everyday fishermen! I pray this person (their name given at the end was Thank You) will be willing to open up to their failures and the forgiveness of His radical grace, and journey with people who are the same.
Sometimes though, I need to remember them. So glad for those who have forgiven me over the years for all I have done "big and small." And that God has forgotten and forgiven my sin completely as he "removes my sin as far as the east is from the west." (Psalm 103:12)
blessings, peace, grace, forgiveness, and always keep it real.
