Day Twenty-Nine. Flee youthful lusts.


"A prudent man foresees evil, and hides himself; the simple pass on, and are punished." Proverbs 27:12

She asks if The Husband recognizes and avoids evil.  She asks if he turns his back on pornography, sexual temptations, and the urge to lie and cheat.

I am very, very thankful that I don't worry about what The Husband does on our computer.  I am very, very thankful that we're content watching movies on TV, where they're edited.

I am very, very, very, very, very thankful that when The Husband is sent away on business, I know that when he's done with work, he is back in his hotel room and he is alone.

And in case any Debbie Downers are reading, I know there's no way for me to know that he's alone, but...  You know what?  Poo on you, I do know he's alone.  Because I trust him and I know that being faithful and steering clear of temptation is important to him.

I know that he doesn't lie to me.  I know that he doesn't lie in general, to anyone.  I can't even imagine it being an urge to him in the first place.

What a weight off my shoulders -- to not have to think about those things.

My Husband, I can barely put into words how grateful I am that you are a man who recognizes evil and avoids it like the plague.  That I can trust you to not look at things on the computer or on TV that would make your mind wander.  That you don't put yourself in situations where you are likely to be tempted.  Thank you for living in a way that brings me such peace.  For living a faithful life intentionally, to be obedient to God and to show me so much love.

Happy Anniversary, Baby.  I love you more than words could ever express.

Especially with your stupid ex husband and his deals, this is really important!
My hubs doesn't do any of that stuff either. Thank God, for reals!
