Day # 24 - Love vs Lust - Jennifer

I am very blessed to have a husband that is very cautious with his eyes. I have never seen him look lustfully at another woman, I have never heard him talk about another woman's looks. Because of this, he has made me secure in our relationship and I am so grateful!

As a mother of three boys, I have a responsibility as to what is being viewed on TV or in magazines in our home. I remember when our oldest, Hudson, was into dirt bikes. He would want a dirt bike magazine and before I would let him have it I would go through and pull out all the inappropriately dressed girls.

You may think I'm crazy but I don't even let Dancing with the Stars into our home. Now our daughter, Erika, and I sometimes sneak into my bedroom and will watch it, but my boys nor, husband need to see half dressed women shaking their bodies.

I personally have a Victoria Secret account, but when their magazine comes in the mail, it is thrown in the dumpster before it can even enter our home.

Mothers and wives have an obligation to the men of their homes to protect them from these kinds of worldly influences. Pornography is rampant in our culture and I wonder how many seeds are planted first right at home.

You comment about Eric never talking about another woman's looks really struck me. My husband doesn't either. I have never heard him say some woman was pretty or beautiful. I always thought that was strange, that he wasn;t a real man. I mean what man doesn't look or notice a beautiful woman?! I guess my husband and Eric have something very important in common. Thank you for showing me that this trait is one of faithfulness and not some quirk. I should thank my husband for that.

Good, I'm glad it could help you! It's always good when we can complement our husbands, they need it!
