and they laughed.

Today, I happened to mention to someone that I don’t live with Ben (my fiance). We believe Scripture when it says that God has a plan for how men and women should relate, and that most intimate relationship is reserved for husbands and wives.
It’s how we roll.
Back to my story.
About a nano-second after the comment, this individual burst into cackles of laughter. Total, complete, absolute laughter. Like, muscles were pulled and breathing was difficult kind of laughter  I’m not faulting my amused friend for his reaction. Though, his reaction did prompt a personal response.
Am I willing to stick to my guns, even when others think me to be laughable?
Most importantly, do I trust God to know what will bring me the greatest joy in life? Joy that will never be matched – not even by a hundred thousand laughs.

    This is interesting. I met a couple when I was in New Orleans who did not live together until they got married. A friend of mine who is also getting married is doing the same thing. Both these couples were Christians too :}

    I applaud you that you and Ben are not falling victim to what’s so popular in today’s culture. Good for you all! You two really are keeping God in your relationship!

    Good for you, dear! And let them laugh- and then when you guys celebrate your 25th anniversary and your 50th anniversary, you and Ben will be the ones laughing with joy! 🙂
