#1 REASON WHY NOT TO FLIRT!!!
A couple were invited to a swanky Halloween costume party. The wife
got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone.
He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she
was going to take some
aspirin and go to bed and there was no need
for his good time to be spoiled by not going.
So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly
for about an hour, woke without pain and as it was still early, decided to
go to the party. As her husband didn't know what her costume was, she
thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how
acted when she was not with him.
So she joined the party and soon spotted her husband in his costume,
cavorting around on the dance floor, with every nice "chick" he could and
copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.. His wife went up to him
being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his new partner
high and dry
devoted his time to her.
She let him go as far as he wished, naturally, since he was her husband.
After more drinks he finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear
and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and had passionate
intercourse in the back seat. Just before unmasking at midnight,
slipped away and went home and put the costume away and got into bed,
wondering what kind of explanation he would make up for his outrageous
She was sitting up reading when he came in, so she asked what kind of
time he had. "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when
you're not there." Then
she asked, "Did you dance much?"
He replied, "I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance. When I got there,
Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the spare room and
poker all evening."
"You must have looked really silly wearing that costume playing poker
she said with unashamed sarcasm.
To which the husband replied, "Actually, I gave my costume to your BROTHER,
apparently he had the time of his life."

*A Soulful Relationship*
If you're not married yet, share this with a friend.
If you are married, share it with your spouse or other married
couples.. and reflect on it.
An African proverb states, "Before you get married,
keep both eyes open, and after you marry, close one eye."
Before you get involved and make a commitment to someone, don't let lust,
desperation, immaturity, ignorance, pressure from others or a low
self-esteem make you blind to warning signs. Keep your eyes open, and don't fool
yourself that you can change someone or that what you see as faults aren't really
Once you decide to commit to someone, over time their
flaws, vulnerabilities, pet peeves, and differences
will become more obvious.
If you love your mate and want the relationship to grow and evolve,
you've got to learn to close one eye and not let every little thing bother
you. You and your mate have many different expectations, emotional needs,
values, dreams, weaknesses, and strengths. You are two unique individuals
who have decided to share a life together.
Neither of you are perfect, but are you perfect for each other?
Do you bring out the best of each other? Do you compliment and compromise
with each other, or do you compete, compare, and control? What do you bring
to the relationship? Do you bring past relationships, past hurt, past
mistrust, past pain?
You can't take someone to the altar to alter him or
her. You can't make someone love you or make someone
stay. If you develop self-esteem, spiritual discernment, and "a life", you
won't find yourself making someone else responsible for your happiness or
responsible for your pain. Manipulation, control, jealousy, neediness, and selfishness
are not the ingredients of a thriving, healthy, loving and lasting relationship.
Seeking status, sex, wealth, and security are the
wrong reasons to be in a relationship.
What keeps a relationship strong?
Communication, intimacy, trust, a sense of humor, sharing household tasks,
some getaway time without business or children and daily exchanges (a meal,
shared activity, a hug, a call, a touch, a note). Leave a nice message on
their voice-mail or send a nice email. Sharing common goals and interests.
Growth is important. Grow together, not away from each other, giving
each other space to grow without feeling insecure. Allow your mate to
have outside interests. You can't always be together. Give each other
a sense of belonging and assurances of commitment. Don't try
to control one another. Learn each other's family situation.
Respect his or her parents regardless.
Don't put pressure on each other for material goods.
Remember for richer or for poorer. If these qualities
are missing, the relationship will erode as resentment, withdrawal,
abuse, neglect, dishonesty, and pain replace the passion.
"Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher
than you think."
The grass withers, the flowers fades, but the word of God stands forever.
shall we make a new rule of life from tonight.
Always try to be a little kinder than is necessary. The difference
between 'United' and 'Untied' is where you put the i.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.
"Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones"
