Beauty and Desire

What makes a woman beautiful and desirable? Is it the perfect symmetry of her facial features? Or is it the complexion of her skin and it’s softness? Maybe a woman’s beauty is derived from the color and silky texture of her long hair. What about her wonderful body with all it’s graceful and sensual curves that suggest health, sensuality and fertility. Is this what the world suggest to us? Yes it is, however it’s a lie.

A woman’s true beauty is found in her soul, her spirit. It improves and becomes richer with maturity. The physical beauty of youth eventually leaves us all behind does it not? What’s left is what really counted all along, it is the inner beauty of a woman’s soul and loving spirit. As king Lemuel writes in Proverbs 31.

Prov 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

I shall choose the true beauty of a virtuous woman.

Unconditional love

I was watching ESPN recently, the hosts of the show were discussing dogs. One host stated in jest of course , “If you lock your wife and dog in a closet, only one will be happy to see you when you let them out.” While not very PC in today’s world, I found it amusing and interesting. We can all learn something from man’s best friend, it’s unconditional love.

Lord help me love others without strings or conditions.

Swearing oaths and vows...

As in all things that last, it takes a daily commitment, not just words but actions. 

Ps 61:8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

Many will swear oaths  or take vows this new year for a myriad of reasons. For example I understand weight watchers and other diet clubs spike in enrollment this time of year. So many striving to be like the next anorexic cover girl model displayed at the grocery checkout.

Yes certainly most of us could benefit from a healthy diet. In that regard, I suggest moderation. Moderation is good, as moderation can easily be integrated into one’s lifestyle and can be more sustainable over time.

Certainly we all desire to see change of some sort in our life, whether physical, emotional or spiritual. Start small, let your yes be yes and your no be no. Our oaths, vows and resolutions mean nothing it we can’t be trusted with the little things. Did you make your bed this morning?

Matthew 5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

 

Happy New Year to you all!

When Jesus came to dwell amongst us, He came quietly. Our typical nativity scenes and Christmas plays sometimes fool us into believing Jesus was on center stage. He was not, far from it. Yes the angels told the shepherds and the star eventually brought the wise men. But there was no pomp or circumstance associated with the birth of Jesus. Even the wise men didn’t show up until well after His birth. Their arrival was maybe as much as one or two years after His birth, we don’t know for sure. My point here is, in this church age, full of mercy and grace, Jesus comes to us quietly and the Holy Spirit draws us to Himself as a gentleman. The Holy Spirit quietly witnesses the truth about Jesus to us. He wants us to use our free will to receive His gift of salvation. That still small voice is God speaking directly to you.

Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

We look forward to Jesus coming again. But how will He return? In quiet meekness, as a thief in the night, or in power and mighty in battle?

My favorite from the book of Psalms. Merry Christmas to all!

Psalm 24

The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

Nonverbal cues can be good!

Sometimes it’s good to use nonverbal visual cues when initiating the idea of sex. The mundane world and its restraints sometimes get in the way. And so, giving a subtle visual cue that allows your mate time to warm up and to prepare herself for intimacy is a good thing! I like to use a small lamp in the bedroom. When it is on, I’m giving a nonverbal cue that I am ready for intimacy. Either partner can turn the light on or off according to free will.  This technique reduces feelings of rejection and stress, and certainly can help improve your sex life. Give it a try.

 

I will keep the light on 😉

The Eye Gate

Ulf loves the female form, her form is beautiful, alluring, exciting and just lovely to admire, yet there is so much more!

God knew what man need more than all the rest of creation. God, in His wisdom knew man need woman. He created her uniquely just for man, and her creation is good, very good!

Man is a visual creature. As such, he needs to control what he sees. In our world of only “youth and perfection” is beautiful, it is easy for man to draw comparisons and be unsatisfied with his mate. The air brush and photoshop make perfection easy, but it’s not real! The beauty of youth fades away but true beauty grows deeper and richer each day. A man must guard his eyes, treating them like a gate. O man, love what is real, not illusion.

What I see, I think about. What I dwell upon in my mind, I eventually act out as thought becomes action. Oh be careful little eyes what you see...

My American Beauty, 


You are so sensitive and aware, you see and feel what I can't. I would be lost without you. No wonder, I love you! I’m captured by your grace and lovely presence. I will long for you always, my princess and my love.

If you are anything like me occasionally things get a little cluttered and out of control around the house. Project leftovers, tools, hobbies and collections, old furniture, even important papers that are not important anymore lol.

Wading into this morass can be overwhelming especially if it’s been awhile between sorts. I like to start small, focusing on one room at a time. I tend to use small book boxes or small moving boxes to catch and collect sorted items. Using small boxes all the same size makes for easy stacks and limits the weight of each box. I use plastic heavy duty yard trash bags to collect and dispose of trash, old papers etc...sorted for shredding and recycling.

My recent experience concerning this issue is with sorting through and cleaning up my parents old home. Sixty seven years worth, yes my parents were married for sixty seven years! What a blessing to our family.

Sorting is not always easy sometimes because of emotional attachment etc.... therefore with any sort, criteria must be established to effectively sort said material goods.

Questions material items must pass to stay:

Have I used the item in the past six months?

Does it add value to my lifestyle, yes or no?

Is it a tool that I plan or expect to use within the next six months and will it save money or add value for my family if I do the work?

Is it an investment or a toy?

Material items that fail the test are sorted into three groups.

Cash
Trash
Charity

Schedule required time to conduct sort process

Execute test and begin sort

Schedule garage sale

Use online resources to sell high value and collectible items.

Any leftovers added to charity sort.

Review plan and adopt necessary changes for project success.

Oh yeah stop buying shit!
