Taken Right From the Heart -- A hot topic

A hot topic in the news these days is marriage—or should we say a re-definition of marriage? In every culture for thousands of years, marriage has been defined as a lifetime commitment between a man and a woman. The only exception has been polygamy.

Never, though, has marriage been defined as a same-sex union. Now, in the 21st century, some so-called enlightened men and women have decided that society and laws should be changed to re-define marriage.

The idea of marriage originated with God when He created man and woman. In its origin, marriage was intended to be between one man and one woman. God’s word gives two reasons for the ideal: companionship and pro-creation. You can read more about it in Genesis 1-2, the first book of the Bible. Thus began the family as God intended.

Has 21st century man become so arrogant and selfish that we suddenly decide to redefine what God has ordained? I hope not.

Just thought this was an interesting take on something that everyone seems to have an opinion on. I am all about equality but where is the line drawn. When the Creator sets a plan in place and we as humans who only see things from a jaded perspective of our limited experiences, who are we to question what true equality is.
The definition of equaltiy is the quality of being the same in quantity or measure or value or status. Our Creator made us all unique with different fingerprints-- not the same. Instead of asking for what is equal, what if we ask the question of what is just & right from the one that Created us.

Just keeps getting better......

This coming September Luciano and I will have been together for five years. Oh how things have changed in just those few short years! The first picture was taken when we were leaders at a camp in Mexico with over 100 teenagers! We actually started dating about a month after that picture was taken, so we were still in the "friends zone". All of these pictures were taken in around august of each year. We have had a few more camps, vacations, and ups and downs through those years but it just seems to keep getting better!
