It's NOT Shocking to Jesus

I have a friend who writes a blog that I wish I had the guts to write, but I don't! I know her from a discussion group about a completely different topic . . . but love her openness about sensuality and sexuality, even though it is out of the narrow boundaries that I have thought I had to live in most of my life.

We all grew up with all kinds of teachings about "Christian marriage" and "gender roles" and "modesty" and "discretion" and what "good women do" and what "good men do" . . . and some of that I still find to be true, and some of it I don't -- and I don't feel like taking the time tonight to analyze that whole spectrum! Suffice it to say that God created us, and He created us male and female, and He saw that what He created was good, and doesn't appreciate us labeling it as bad (or even as something we need to keep way in the background and focus on "more important things")!

So kudos to my friend who is willing to break some taboos and talk openly about her experiences and prompt us to change some of our too-uptight or our too-cheap views of sensuality and life!

If you are old enough and brave enough, she posts here: Sensuous Wife

Enjoy!

Wow, hon, thank you! (happy grin)

oh and by the way, it is out of the narrow boundaries that I have thought I had to live in most of my life
Me too!! Which is one of the things that propelled me toward writing this blog. I am redeemed and I cannot shut up about it! (giggle)
