Good article on "Judge Not?"

Yes, that was good. My wife and I actually had to deal with a delema the autor mentioned of 'non married' relatives that have visited us expecting to be able to sleep in the same bed.

Those were some tough situations and I still don't know how it came across to them or if they understood the fact that we were not judging them. We believe in the traditional Christian belief that sex was reserved by God only in marriage between a man and a woman. If you are not a Christian, you can do whatever you want to. But in my home, with my 3 children sleeping in bedrooms next to you, I cannot allow non-married people to sleep together. In all the cases, my children knew they were not married and would have probably called the hypocracy card on me if I had let them. <g>

Try telling that to your grandmother and her boyfriend. <g> The boyfriend took it in stride. My 5'10" strong-willed German grandma? Not so much.

But she still came and stayed with us all the time instead of her son which lives 30 minutes away from us. We were doing something right! <g>
