The Bachelor and Bible Study

**Let me preface with this: Reality TV is really not reality at all. It is a simulated reality. But I do love the Biggest Loser and unfortunately got hooked by this seasons Bachelor.

OK, First of all can I just say I cannot believe this guy. I really thought he was a great catch for any of the ladies and had big opinions on who he should send home. I could go on and on about Jason, Molly and Melissa...but I won't.

My bible study this week was replacing an attitude of criticism with an attitude of love. It is so good. Love it, love it, love it.

What do these two have to do with each other?
We have love so messed up. The bachelor kept saying how he could not help his heart and how he felt. He was just following his heart. He didn't regret proposing to one girl then dumping her on national tv because he did love her at the time. Give me a break.

On Ellen DeGeneres she was talking of the situation and said 'You straight people can have your "marriage" if that is what it is all about'. Ouch.

We have things so messed up. So far from God's standards. So far from the truth.
Love is patient, Love is kind, love does not envy, love does not parade itself, is not proud, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provokes, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in inequity, but rejoices in truth, love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
I really don't think going on the bachelor will net anyone a life long love (OK, maybe Trista and Ryan). But how crazy is our society to think that this is real love. What security is in this kind of love?

Can I just say I absolutely love my man. He is awesome and I need him more than anyone else on this planet. Does he drive me crazy? Sometimes. But I know I drive him nuts too. But I am crazy for him. I hope I can show him a 1 Corinthians 13 kind of love for the rest of my days.

From someone who also loves her man second only to go girl. I actually really dislike shows like the bachelor because of the 'L' word being thrown around so casually. They have No clue what the meaning of the word is and the producers are counting on it! However, to show you that I am nowhere near a "high horse" my fav reality tv shows are "Project Runway" and "America's Next Top Model" or and don't forget "American Idol". Sad sad sad! No redeeming qualities in those either. I do like "Biggest Loser" because they are making healthy changes in their lives.
Love ya!
