When I Wanna “One”

Sharing God's Story

One thought on “When I Wanna “One”

  1. I opened Instagram and saw a chick showing off her naked boobs at a dining table. My mind adjusted to two instant thoughts:

    1. My wife’s look better at double the age

    2. The Greek salad looks divine, good for Banting.

    Im not going to deny the beauty of a girl in a bikini on the beach, but I will not allow my flesh to lust after a mere icon of false promise.
