Get ready for one of the most exciting new scheduling ideas I’ve heard in a long time! As you know, turning the corner and heading back into a new school year can mean marriage relationships sometimes take a beating. Especially when it comes to intimacy. If we're not mindful, we can find ourselves so busy keeping the children on time and moving forward, that we neglect to connect with our spouse out of distraction and exhaustion.
Reality is, our physical oneness needs to be a top priority regardless of how busy or tired we are, Why you might ask? Because It's key to staying in sync in the middle of bumbling busyness. When the storms of life blow your way, physical connection is the glue that keeps the marriage relationship in tact. It's the drawbridge to the palace!
Here's the newsroom facts!
As I was wrapping up the three chapters on intimacy for my book, “Chaos in the Castle or Peace in the Palace?," I discovered a scheduling scandal I had to expose! I was shocked when I read the results of a new study on S-E-X Scheduling. (Oh My!) It was revelational to say the least. Apparently the female body goes through a hormone shift when S-E-X is placed on the calendar. I know! I know! You probably think as I have that this theory seems void of romance. Many women shun the idea for fear it removes spontaneity from bedroom balihoo with their spouse. Honestly, I have avoided the notion myself for that same reason.
Drum roll please!
The lack of romance idea goes out the window with this one, ladies. In the study where both men and women scheduled intimacy, researchers found the blood hormone levels of women miraculously shifted. The findings concluded sexual desire hormones actually accelerated for females when they scheduled S-E-X on the calendar. The shift in hormones is believed to occur because women are spending time dreaming about having sex. Even more surprising, men’s hormones did not shift at all. That came as no surprise to me. After all, scheduled or not, men often look forward to intimacy with the queen of their palace.
When I read the study, I realized once again our God never ceases to amaze me! He literally built into women the ability to change our sexual hormone levels despite our busy “mom on the run” lifestyles. Being outside the realm of time, God knew all the hats we’d wear as wife and mother in a fast paced world, so he gave us a gift that would increase our desire and move us toward peace in the palace. Along with all the many other things on our calendar, we will reap the rewards if we actually put the word “S-E-X” there too! We can put an end to chaos in the bed chamber by simply scheduling intentional intimacy. No matter how busy or tired we are, scheduled sex increases our longing for seduction. Only our Creator could have devised such a plan. Even if it means an overnight baby sitter or a trip to the grandparents now and then for our children, it's worth it. Regardless of our circumstances, pursuing intimacy and making it a priority.can give us a bedroom bouquet of love.
Fair maidens, get out your calendars and start scheduling!
As you head toward the busyness in the new school year, get down to the business of scheduling SEX as a priority. Sex on the calendar doesn't have to be a scandal when it helps your marriage stay strong.
