Milton, here for Kristy:

Sex for the Saints: 

So you want to hear some decent talk about sex? Kristy called it fireworks. I called it fun.

Let's begin here. 

It is God given. 
It is Biblically governed. 
It is the connection intended.
It is the gift of the pure.
It is a vow to be honored.
It is sanctified by marriage.
It is spiritual vitality.
It is the essence of romance.
It is the fantasy of the mind.
It is the ecstasy of the body.
It is the completion of relationship.
It is not to be refused in marriage.
It is expressed by love.
It is respected by the wise.
It is unusually necessary. 
It is unbelievably important.
It is fireworks.
It is fun.

It is all around us.
It is not going away.
It needs some help.
It is cause. 
It is action.
It is fireworks.
It is fun.

It is the question of the child.
It is the puzzlement of adolescence.
It is the dynamite of every teen.
It is the anticipation of the young adult.
It is the experiment of the newly pronounced.
It is the richness of the seasoned couple.
It is fireworks.
It is fun.

It is on men's minds.
It is in women's touch and feel.
It is moved by words.
It is inspired by the eyes.
It is ignited by spirit and flesh.
It cannot be ignored.
It won't go away.
It is why you are here.
It cannot be replaced without great harm.
It has a very special place.
It is very dangerous.
It is very explosive.
It is fireworks.
It is fun.

It is belittled by small minds.
It is betrayed by ignorant actions.
It is believed to be sacred by few.
It is born out of God honored blessing.
It is a window of the soul.
It is a guide to the the heart.
It is the genius of God.
It is the desire of man.
It is the glory of women.
It is fireworks. 
It is fun.

It is the anticipation of every virgin.
It is the hope of every excited groom.
It is the wonder of every beautiful bride.
It is the consummation of romantic relationship.
It is the excitement of marriage.
It is the experience of every parent.
It is the precursor to every child.
It is fireworks.
It is is fun.

Finally, before I close my thoughts and lose you married folks to further experiment, did I mention that it is fireworks and it is fun?

Awesome post, Milton. This is so necessary for people to hear this and I wonder why we hear so little of it in church when it's on people's minds all day?

Anxious to read this "series" you are writing! This is so necessary! I know you and Kristy did seminars and counseling on marriage, etc. What do you do when the husband only desires sex maybe once or twice a month (tops) and the wife is the one with the desire for at least a couple of times a week? It hurts to be told no by a man when many of us girls think that most guys would love a wife with that sort of drive.

A poet too? That's awesome! Have to borrow/share it but I'll be sure to give you credit!

This statement:
It is the experience of every parent
Is not always true. Sometimes we can't conceive but become parents through another way that God ordained, adoption.

anonymous 5:30pm, I hear what you are saying however if you "tried" to conceive and didn't it would still be something you experienced, would it not? (He was talking about the sex being something experienced, not the parenting.) If you hadn't tried to conceive a child naturally and it didn't happen then you wouldn't have known to pursue adoption unless you did it as a single parent in which case it would be understandable about the "no sex" part.

Well said, Milton. I thank you for putting words to my thoughts, lol. I will be back here soon, dragging my son who will be married on December 6.

Parenting itself is a challenge. Christian parenting is more so. All my children had friends named everyone.

This may make the next step a wee bit easier.

In His love,

You can be a parent by adoption which is a wonderful, sacred blessing. My thoughts were more in the line of the sexual experience that couples share that often leads to children.

Did you hear about the lady who was intervened by the census taker and said she had 22 children?

The census taker was amazed until she heard how many times the lady had twins and triplets.

"Did you have twins and triplets every time," the census taker asked?

"No," the lady responded. "There were hundreds of times we got nothing."

Straight talk is always good!
Keep up the good work!
Gotta go!
Time for bed!

Maybe I'll wake up 'grouchie'!

"There were hundreds of times we got nothing....." Oh, how funny!
Milton, you are something else!
I do appreciate your taking time for an area that is often taboo. It's God ordained.

Keep up the good work!
