Vow Week 4

The Vow—4The Vow Of Purity
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his

wife, and they become one flesh.25 Adam and his wife were both naked,

and they felt no shame.Genesis 2:24-25
shame: buwsh (boosh); to be ashamed; to feel completely worthless.
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were

naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for

themselves….9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” 10

He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I

was naked; so I hid.”Genesis 3:7, 9-10
Secrecy Is The Enemy Of Intimacy.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as

children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all

goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the

Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but

rather expose them. Ephesians 5:8-11

How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according

to your word. 10 I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray

from your commands. 11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I

might not sin against you. Psalm 119:9-11

What a day?

What has been the hardest day you have had in the past week? 

I am learning not everyone has been trained as well as me.  This sometimes causes me to have to step back and explain what I am doing multiple times to the same individual.  So today was one of those days that my patients was tried over and over.  Tomorrow will be a better day.

The love I have for my Wife!

Every day I wake up knowing that right next to be is the lowest paid, hardest worker I know. She get up and ready for her day and while doing that she cares for both of my demanding boys. Takes care of the house, bills, food, and then stays up until all of her boys are asleep. My wife is no supper hero mom but she is as close as one can get. I love her and am so glad I get to spend my life with her.
