Someone recently asked me a very personal question and to tell the truth I was very offended by it. The question was, "have you been fixed?" First of all we are not animals regardless of what the evolutionary textbooks would lead us to believe. We are created in the image of God. So therefore, no I have not been "fixed". Secondly, it's no one's business. Period. Regardless of who you are in relationship to me. That is between my husband and me. Period. Our society has degraded the institution of marriage and family to such a degree that there seems to be no place for intimacy between a husband and wife. No respect or reverence for it. It's all so commonplace. And our children are viewed as a burden and not the blessings that God intended them to be. Whether or not my husband and I are blessed with anymore children is up to God. Period.

"Free will I have often heard of, but I have never seen it. I have always met with will,and plenty of it, but it has either been led captive by sin or held in the blessed bonds of grace."
C. H. Spurgeon

Fulfillment in the Rest of Christ
4 FebBe advised, everyone of you who is now seeking rest in the world. Be advised, and come and seek rest in Christ. You have no home, no refuge, no hiding place, no portion. Sickness and death will soon be upon you—and you are unprepared. Be advised, and seek rest in Christ. There is enough in Him and to spare. Who has tried and did not find? A dying Welsh boy said, in broken English, “Jesus Christ is plenty for everybody.” Know your privileges, all you who have come to Christ. You have something solid under foot and something firm under hand. You have a rest even now, and you shall have more abundantly.
