30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 3

Regardless of my current status, do I believe a person should save themself for marriage…

I do now. I did not always think this way and I certainly did not wait until marriage but I really believe it would be a nice thing to experience for the new bride and groom. I hear often the argument that you need to know beforehand if the two of you are compatible. I think that a marriage is the biggest job you will ever have in life. It is a job. It is work! Just like any other aspect of married life, there is give and take. There are introverts married to extroverts. Meatatarians married to vegetarians. People with a low libido married to nymphomaniacs.

It’s all give and take. It’s all compromise. If you love your spouse you are going to want to please them in any way you can. If you love your spouse you are going to have to go out of your comfort zone on occasion and perform a sexual act you might not find enjoyable at first. Perhaps you will later. I don’t see anything wrong with saving yourself for marriage other than it being so hard to do, especially today. I truly am trying to live my life by the Bible so yes, I believe in waiting.

I also want to let everyone know that although I did not comment on most of your posts yesterday, I did read them. I did not want to disagree with your answers and I did not want to express my opinion because I believe my post today explains better to you, how I would have responded if I had commented on your post. I did not in anyway want to sound like a parent or a preacher/teacher. Everyone’s feelings and opinions are welcome at this 30 day honesty table and I did not want to come off as if I was being judgmental. Even though I would not have meant it to be, for fear of it coming across that way, I did not comment on most posts yesterday. No hard feelings I hope (paronomasia most definitely intended)!

31 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 07

The worst thing that could happen to me is…

I imagine sometimes when my wife and I have little Bakers running around the house. I think about being a father all the time and how wonderful I think she would be as a mom. I think the worst thing that could happen to a parent is to have to bury a child. Parents are not meant to survive their kids. Children are meant to bury their parents.

I see on the news or have read about, have seen on countless television shows or movies when parents lose a child to gun violence, suicide, or medical conditions. It tears my heart to hear it so I think the worst thing that could happen is to me (even though I am not yet a father) is to have a child die.

Originally my answer was different and I suppose I could give two answers to this question. I’ve noticed that as the days go by others taking part in Blogging Honesty are taking liberties, so…

In retrospect, I think this might be the absolute worst thing that could happen to me… What if I lived my life the way I wanted to and have been doing and then died and found out that what Jesus and the Bible said was true.  Having to spend all eternity in Hell is definitely the WORST thing that could happen to me. Somehow I don’t think waiting until death is the right time to find out.
