I got this from Lauryn.

It’s cloudy and drizzling rain outside. And I feel just like it looks out there.

More from The Bride Wore White, by Dannah Gresh:

 The beauty of sexual love is being camouflaged by big fat lies. That, of course, is because Satan has entered onto the scene. John 8:44 tells us the true character of Satan. The devil “was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no such truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” What is Satan? He is a big fat liar. And I think his favorite lies relate to your sexuality because of its powerful symbolism. (We will talk more about that later. For now, know that the true meaning of sex is so far beyond the pitiful meaning this world offers that it’ll blow your mind if you’ve never heard about it!)

I like to compare the way he lies to you and me about sex to the way he lied to Eve aout the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Why? God’s Word tells us that everything in the Garden of Eden was created by God’s own hand. It also tells us that He is incapable of making anything that is not good. So it is very possible that the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil would have had quite an interesting and noble purpose had Eve simply waited  for God to reveal it to her  in His time. Interesting thought, don’t you think? My friend, sex is like that. It is such a good and wonderful thing that God has created if we wait  for God’s timing to enjoy it. Satan knows that one of the most beautiful things in our world is the sexual union between a husband and a wife when they wait to enjoy it after their wedding. He wants to rob you of that, so he lies to you.”

  1. Prayers for Ethan. David is not sure yet if he will go to Iraq or the border. If it is the border he leaves in June. It is possible he goes to the border for 12 months and then Iraq.

  2. Cindy,
    You can always send the rain this way. It rain very hard for a long time last night. It was cold too which was a surprise. I can’t get over how cool it is today.
    God bless you.

  3. Hi, Cynthia….it’s fairly cool out there for this time of year. Wednesday it was downright hot.
    And Cathy…I forgot to answer you….I don’t have any salman spread recipes. Sorry.

  4. I found one online I am going to try.
    That is a great post about sex and God’s timing. So many marriages could be stronger even saved if that had been followed.

  5. Hannah, it is my daughter’s book. I had started reading it a long time ago, and just recently picked it up again to finish it. I thought there might be several people who could benefit.
