Weaving Moral Fiber in a Frayed Society

JJ & Kuda 080527 003  The entertainment and advertising industries seem intent on reducing the entire realm of sexual experience down to one crass, sophomoric sit-com joke.  We are being robbed of the understanding that sexual pleasure is a gift from God, meant to be cherished as such within a loving relationship.  Don’t let Hollywood and Madison Avenue entice you to debase yourself, with their unrelenting suggestions that sex is simply an entitlement or an uncontrollable, animal urge.  Keep it a sacred thing, honored by the marriage commitment – having chosen your partner with great care.  To paraphrase Billy Graham, the sexually promiscuous just think they’re having fun because they haven’t got the real thing to compare their experience to.  (67)

Teach by example, and live your values.  Be the best example of living a good life that you can possibly be and then accentuate the positive in all people and all circumstances.  Buy the records Accentuate the Positive and Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep (Bing Crosby versions), and play them to young children!  (52)

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and always tell the truth, no matter how painful that may be.  Once you have lied to someone, it takes a very long time to regain that person’s trust.  All successful relationships at home or at work are built on trust.  (52)

To that end we offer inspirational real-life stories about PEOPLE OF FAITH AND COURAGE; menus and cooking directions meant to fuel your creative inclinations and your healthy body in the form of MUSINGS OF A MIDWESTERN FOODIE; and ADVICE FOR LIFE from the perspective of those who have lived it to maturity.
