One weekend he called and asked if he could cancel our date that Saturday so he could go to Amarillo to the car races with some buddies.
I said, "Sure, you go and have fun" and immediately called an officer friend of mine at the base and told him that I was suddenly "available" for Saturday night and asked him to find me a substitute date.
My nose seemed huge so I would dust brown eye shadow on the sides of my nose to make it appear smaller.
It actually confused my ex boyfriends that I was so determined to go spend time with Jesus.
We gazed at each other as we said, "I do." I smile as I think of one of the most wonderful blessings that God has given me: the blessing of marriage.
Just recently, as I thought of the blessing my husband, Bro.
But, the authority of Christ needs to take precedence over your physical drives. If the social, emotional, spiritual dimensions are missing or lacking, you are out of balance.
If you can’t stand the person but have a great physical relationship, rethink the relationship. If one person is uncomfortable with any type of physical expression, don’t do it. Don’t push a date to do anything that makes him/her feel uncomfortable. (In case you're interested, my previous boyfriend called me when he got back to town and I told him I was no longer interested and that I had moved on without him.I have always been grateful that he broke that date with me.)I had been out of church and away from God for 16 years (not a happy time) then when something in my life happend and I knew I needed to turn back to the Lord and get back in church. You must decide before you go on the date what your limits will be. It’s too difficult to think when passion overtakes you. You can resist temptation if you put on the whole armor of God (Eph. Soo, a few of you have asked me about my story and although I've touched on it-- I've never blogged about it. The African American family came to meet me and my foster family explained to them that I may have Cerebral Palsy because I cried all the time & because I was stiff. It was super surprising to me because I had always viewed myself as ugly. I also learned that I cannot take a couple bad apples & generalize a whole race. So I want to tell you more about myself so you can understand my perspective when I talk about dating, courting and relationships. They passed on me & took an African American boy with severe allergies .. My mother told me that when they called her she picked my older sister up, Kristi & danced with her in excitement. I never hung out with African Americans so I thought that I had to "be like" them to get them to like me. "Ellen, will you put your dating life on the altar?" This question haunted me for a little while, for I knew that He was asking me to trust Him with the question of marriage. She didn't believe in kissing before she got married-- so I'm sure she was always like that. So as soon as my birth mother gave birth to me, she gave me to a foster home right away. With all of my crying, she thought that I had Cerebral Palsy. I DO want to highlight that my PARENTS are amazing. The church was awesome with volunteering but I didn't learn how .. My birth mother (who was mexican/german) and my father (who was african american) didn't think that my mother could get pregnant. while she was in college--she found out that she was pregnant. She took the unselfish route & gave me an opportunity at life. My foster mother didn't believe in fat babies, so she fed me 3 bottles a day--one for breakfast, lunch and dinner--so as a growing baby I cried! My father has passed away-- but my mother is still here & is STILL a huge ball of LOVE. So I went to an all-white school and me and one other person were the only people of color. Guys didn't ask me out-- so when someone DID give me attention, I just settled for whoever because it felt good to be wanted. But personally, I didn't learn that I wasn't supposed to not have sex outside of marriage. still wasn't a christian even though I "grew" up as one.

There were two families that were looking to adopt me--but the foster family gave the African American family the first opportunity..because they were black. About 40% of my family has some type of physical or mental disability. When my mom was little, she lived across the street from an orphanage and she would visit there everyday and tell them that when she grows up--she's going to go back and adopt them all. My mama told me if I'm going to have sex-- get on birth control. So pretty much, at this point-- I had soul ties, emotional and physical ties, was jealous, insecure, rejected & confused. So now I'm in college and ALL these guys are giving me attention. But some of the girls I met when I first went to college were SO mean to me for NO reason and I was so chipper & nice. Nonetheless, I started getting my crew together & met a ton of friends from all races.
