Safe Boundaries

My children know the boundaries in our backyard. We live on a lake. Our lawn goes down to wetland vegetation. The vegetation is low so that we can still see the lake and enjoy the view, however you cannot get thought the vegetation to the lake. It's too thick.

To get to the lake, you have to take the path. My children know they are allowed to go to the edge of the grass, but they may not go down the path to the lake without an adult. These "safe boundaries" keep them from the chance of drowning.

What about in our daily lives? Are we living within safe boundaries to protect us? Safe boundaries can not only protect our children, but us as adults too.

Join me over at Titus 2 in Action today, to learn to have Safe Boundaries in your marriage.

I must be outside those boundaries. You have a lovely view Kelly.

Yes, we must love our kids enough to set boundaries, and ourselves enough to say NO! to the flesh.
