Don’t be deceived

If you spend an inordinate amount of time thinking of breasts or lips, you’ve probably been deceived.

This is even more true if you’re single. If you spend time relishing graphic thoughts centering on Couples Nursing without having even met your spouse, you’re probably deceived.

If you spend more time on this blog than with God, you’ve been deceived.

If you spend more of your livelihood musing on an ANR than the God who gave the gift of ANR, you’ve been deceived.

If you have explicit ANR-centric conversations with people other than your spouse, or at least a potential spouse, you’ve probably been deceived.

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.”
