Reading this post this morning, I started to think about my own childhood, how we were raised. My parents had a large family and our dad read the bible every day to us, we prayed every morning and before going to sleep. My dad always spoke about living for Jesus and being holy. I remember how he told us to save our self for marriage and to stay pure. I always had this fear of God in my heart that He was watching me, and I was shy to even think about kissing anyone outside of marriage. In high school I was supper shy, and had no problems in keeping my self pure and saved for someone special. When I turned 19 years old, I prayed to God to give me a present for my birth day. And He did. I met my husband on my birthday, well I actually invited him, a new boy at church to my birthday celebration. That's when we started to get to know each other, through phone calls, visits, and lots of wonderful trips. Then he had to move to CA and we kept in touch, kept the long distance romance going. It was wonderful when we finally decided to get married and after a 3 year romance-dating we got married. We talked about keeping ourselves pure for marriage, we were both raised that sex outside of marriage was a big "No-No". I am glad God kept us both to our promise and we entered our marriage as pure and untarnished virgins.
Now we have been married for almost 14 years, and God has blessed our, and our marriage is strong and loving, and I am thankful that God has given me such a wonderful gift when I turned 19.
