sexy but wholesome…

whenever i hear the word “pony tails,” or “pig tails,” i can imagine a convention full of stiff tailed girls converging on some grand Beauty and Hair Styling Convention, all energized like Monster-induced energizer bunny-women. and somewhere in that male-fantasy-dream, a spunky looking farm-bred castaway would lead the others to a hall where everyone would sit down, introduce themselves, and begin an endless discussion on the massive task of their morning hair preparation rituals. But after a few hours of this endless chatter, the poster child of all pigtails would emerge…like Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 woman, without signs of aging, as beautiful as she was in black and white back…or color…in 1967, and in the era of the rerun, when I watched…

as a child growing into a boy with hormones. No one could rock my world like Mary Ann.

not even Ginger.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love all gingers…even Ginger Beer, but Mary Ann had a certain dreaminess every growing boy could love…sexy, but too wholesome…just cute enough we didn’t care if she was really THAT intelligent unless she was sweet to poor Gilligan…

it might have been the dumbest show on television, but we sure loved Mary Ann.

but that was a long time ago. now, as men of the generations that grew up in “The Age of the Rerun,” we have older women we are supposed to get excited about.

well, i don’t know about you, but i haven’t seen many that come close to “sexy but wholesome.” somewhere along the line, many women lost touch with the concept of true beauty and opted for piercings, tattoos, and other marks of  distinction, as if that somehow improved on God’s design. well, I think not. God made you beautiful so you can be beautiful. So, why are so many women making themselves look ugly?


God made you in His image. What part of that truth do you not understand?

is it time to take a look in the mirror and see if you reflect that wholesomeness? because it is only when the beauty that comes from God will you ever look truly sexy.
