The most Important day in a Woman’s life, her wedding day. Your Big Day! You want everything to be perfect and go off without a hitch. Weddings are beautiful they are important, they are impressive. They are emotional and often very expensive. We cry at weddings and laugh at weddings. We take care to be at the right place at the right time and say the right words. Where people stand is important. The way people dress is significant. Every detail, candle, flower is memorable.
The wedding is the easy part. It’s Marriage that’s going to take work. It’s not for the faint of heart. In marriage we work out every detail of the promises and commitments spoken at the wedding. It’s after the wedding the real work begins. The wedding is her fairytale day. That should be exactly as she wants it. The long and rich life of faithful love that the wedding announces. The event of the wedding without the life of the marriage doesn’t amount to much. You share a daily love, a continuing tenderness, attentive listening, inventive giving, a creative blessing shared between two souls in an everlasting union.
You pray that the spirit of commitment and love shall sustain itself for the rest of your lives. To have as smooth a day as possible, careful planning of the details will be your best friend. Depending on the size of your wedding i.e. (guestlist), you may need a wedding planner for 100 or more people. Wedding planners can be a god send they know their stuff. With smaller weddings 50 or less guests, you can save yourself the expense of a planner and plan the wedding yourself with the help of the maid of honor and or bridal party. I really enjoyed planning the details of my wedding myself. I’m the type of woman that has a clear vision of what I want so there was no way I’d hire a planner. I love the details. You spend months planning, when the big day finally arrives, breathe, slow down, and enjoy every single moment. It’s your Big Day!
In 2016 more and more brides are opting to purchase their wedding gown online. Many will think it’s a risky decision. You can’t try it on, you can’t feel the fabric, and you can’t see how it moves. Despite this many brides are finding the idea appealing and are turning to the internet in increasing numbers to buy their wedding dresses. Perhaps there’s not enough variety in your local salon. Maybe you don’t want to deal with pushy salespeople. Or perhaps the deals are simply better online. Brides today want the dress of their dreams at a price they can afford. With such an important purchase here are some things to keep in mind.
Besides wanting to look beautiful on her big day a wedding dress serves as a totemic garment, symbolic of a major event and a pretty big deal in every culture. You will likely have many pictures taken in it. And maybe even save it for your daughter or granddaughter. There are very few other types of garments that are fraught with such significance. The first thing you’ll do is choose which style of wedding dress you want to wear.
The challenges that life can present have the potential of bringing you closer or tearing you apart. It’s in those times where you must draw on your faith in God and the commitment that you made before God to love your spouse in sickness and in health. Flexibility and openness along with good communication between the two of you are keys to remaining close to one another during times of sickness and chronic illness. I feel like this is the time to really dive in and show your spouse what you are made of!
Caring for a spouse in times of illness is a very honorable and loving thing to do that strengthens a relationship. Anyone can be around when things are going well. It doesn’t take any faith for that. But you know you have a good strong partner when someone is willing to go through the rough times with you. No one said it would be easy. But we can do all things through Christ. Both spouses will have to learn how to cope with many feelings and realities. Some days will be good days. Some days will be bad days. Everyday without a break for you as the caregiver will be tiring. So as the healthier spouse and caregiver take care to treat yourself well during these difficult times.
OMG, you mean to tell me a Christian woman can be sexy, adventurous, and desired by her husband? And God is not mad at me for having a sexually fulfilling life with my husband? I can still be a “nice Christian woman” and love sex too. God is the creator of sex and pleasure, and marriage. I think He is way ahead of you on this one. God created sex to be enjoyed in the marriage relationship.
Could it be that many relationships that have sex before marriage fall apart at rapid speeds because you’re not doing it God’s way. The no sex before marriage was put in place to protect the woman from harm (emotional and physical). Think about how many relationships you’ve had in the past that involved sex that you had lots of grief over.
However, the marital bond strengthens a relationship in which you have an everlasting union. Aside from physical harm, the marital sexual relationship is to be fully enjoyed within the bonds of holy matrimony. To put it simply, after you get married it’s party time! You can unleash yourself fully on your husband and vice versa. Forever is a long time and it takes some creativity and thinking outside the box to keep things fresh and new as the years go by. For that reason you don’t want to get stuck in a rut of doing the same things the same way all the time never trying anything new.
Marriage is freedom within your sexual relationship and you now have that freedom to make your sex life the best that it can be. As with all areas of life, God’s instructions on sex can be found in the Bible. The Bible talks about sex a lot. But often the answers to sexual questions are not found in chapter and verse. For example you won’t find any references to vibrators. But using the Bible as a reference guide to making decisions is wisdom.
There is nothing spiritual or moral about limiting sexual pleasure in marriage. God is the greatest proponent of your pleasure. Not the pleasure that is sweet for a season, but the deep profound satisfaction that only grows sweeter with time. Yes you will hit your sexual stride as a couple at some point during your marriage by exploring. Lots of times it’s not about swinging from the chandeliers, but often as simple as communication.
Being honest about what pleasures you and being able to articulate to your spouse is key. A wife should open up and blossom within their sexual life with her husband so that bonding is always in full bloom. This is the time to be sexually free! There are some things the Bible is very clear about particularly related to sex and perversion. Once you understand what God has said No to you are free to have a great time exploring all He has given you to enjoy.
This may mean that for some couples a sexual act may be fine, while for another it may not. An example of this is oral sex. Some couples feel great freedom to include this in their lovemaking. For other couples oral sex triggers memories of sexual abuse or pornographic images. The same act can be harmful to one couple and loving to another.
Women enjoy sex. Yes even conservative Christian Women, but for some less uninhibited women it’s almost like a secret. “We enjoy it but we don’t want you to know.” The Bible gives wives permission to have a fruitful sex life with their husbands. Now women need to give themselves permission to fully enjoy pleasure within the marital relationship. It’s okay to be who you are. A Smart Christian Woman who is conservative and sexy, enjoys pleasure, loves her husband, is desired by her husband, has a desire to please him, and wants a fulfilling relationship in every way. She is a sexually confident Wife.
Are you in a codependent relationship? Codependency is a dynamic where one or both persons in a relationship feel an excessive and unhealthy responsibility for the other person’s life.
The first moments of a meeting are the most important as people will make an immediate judgement in the first three seconds. Those three seconds could mean the success and failure of your business or interview. Office attire is always professional. With the exception of a casual day which is usually on a friday when you’re able to dress a little less formal. In the warmer weather months you will exchange your sweaters for lighter weight blouses, cotton button down shirts and lightweight blazers and jackets. Colors can change from dark to light although nothing too bright or busy patterns, less is more in the warmer weather so keep it simple. Make sure you take the time to properly prepare for your meetings so that you can make a lasting impact. And before you go out think about the kind of message you and your wardrobe are sending.
Last but not least is to always wear a smile. Let prospects know you love what you do.
