Boobies and Hinies

An image from the Patrick Demarchelier shoot.

Yes...that's a vintage Chanel sequined jacket and...

...yes...the guy on the right's hairline does start towards the rear 1/3 of his head. Freaky.

Quick questions...

If we are sending our kids in to Africa or Papua New Guinea, the South of France or Rio de Janeiro ...we'd be smart to discuss culture variants with them ahead of time, right? They might be seeing things they've never seen before. Like barely clothed or unclothed populations...... or entire families on nude beaches for instance.

Same goes for the island of Manhattan, right?

Boobies and hinies are boobies hinies wherever they appear.

Is it possible to be in the presence of American boobies and hinies devoid of sexual association?

I think so.

But, then again I was raised in a culture like that so it doesn't seem odd to me.

For some, proximity like this might be a huge struggle. A temptation to be avoided at all costs.
For others...not so much. Thank the good Lord that there are people who are able to minister to those in adult entertainment circles...and to ladies and men & boys and girls of the night.

It's a matter of the heart.

Be in the world not of it.

Love the Lord your God and love people.

I hope to be raising young men who know how to avert their eyes when necessary and look upon all cultures they encounter as those in need of redeeming love.

From our talks with the boys about stuff like this...I get a clearer picture of how enormously HUMONGOUS God is.

I am convinced more than ever that He does not fit into a box.

I love you. And I hope I parent with similar views. Even though we don't see quite as many boobies and hinies here in the Bible Belt...the conversations...are always necessary.
Thank you.

And...I wish we could Skype during Big Love because Oh.My.Goodness. This season is loaded!

The guy on the right looks like he's channeling the butler from Rocky Horror Picture Show...and probably on purpose. :-)
