It seems when people talk about sex nowadays, it's in reference to same sex marriages, living together, men's rights, women's rights, etc., etc., etc. I wanted to write about sex within a relationship, hopefully the marriage relationship after the age that most people think sex is the farthest thing from your mind.
It's true many people push sex to the back folder of the file cabinet in their head, the place that nobody opens any more. Some people think that if the child bearing years are over, then sex is over. Some think that if you have aches, pains, stretch marks, extra weight, vaginal dryness, erection issues, etc., that sex is over. Some people just don't want to deal with it anymore and have replaced sex with jobs, hobbies, children, etc. Some have illnesses and the desire has left them.
Hopefully, this month we have learned that sex is more than just for reproduction. We learned that even when physical ailments or issues get in the way of having sex the way we did when we were young, sex is not over. We learned that sex is more than intercourse and our brain is our largest and strongest sex organ. Everything we do starts in our brain. If we say no in our brain, our body will say no. If we say yes in our brain, our body will say yes, as well.
I read a little book about happiness and found that we can change our attitude toward each day in the morning before the day starts. What we think about is what we are about...whether negative or positive. Thank you, Jacqueline Pirtle for 365 Days of Happiness!
There are issues that need to be discussed. Not in scary, inappropriate ways, or in negative ways. These issues surrounding getting older, need to be discussed in a respectful, Godly, and positive way. I hope that here we can feel safe enough to discuss anything.
