10. When To Have Sex? – Respect your partner’s sexual pace 

1 Corinthians 7:4-5 – (4)The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. (5)Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 

I love you, I love you – Thats what Calvary said

I love you, I love you – Written in red

Down through the ages God wrote His love

With the same hands that suffered and bled

Giving all the He had to give

A message so easily read

I love you, I love you – That’s what Calvary said

I love you, I love you – Written in red
