Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth...
by Paula Neal Mooney
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
for your love is more delightful than wine.
Song of Solomon 1:2
This is the pic of me and my husband that hangs on our bedroom wall.
I had it blown up and hung it on the wall to help foster and flame that romantic atmosphere, reminding us both that before we became "mommy and daddy" we first became "husband and wife" -- lovers.
Marital love can be hot.
Watching Robin Thicke interact with his beautiful wife in his 'Lost Without U' video reminded me of that fact, after watching it I wept and read the entire Song of Solomon in one bathing, soaking up its intense imagery and wisdom, not only of the Lord's relationship with Israel, but also of a man's changing relationship with his wife.
Be ye not deceived
Turn on any Desperate Housewives episode and you'll see women jumping in and out of bed with a new man each week. Those writers would have you believe that plenty-o-sex-with-varying-men is the thing, the way to gain real excitement.
Research the hot searches on the net any given moment, and you'll find a plethora of men in hot pursuit FHM spreads of the fleeting flavor-of-the-moment in the raw.
Today's seem to be "Leslie Bibb nude pics," no doubt frantically searched for by men who salivatingly envision how much better she would be in bed than their own wives.
There is none righteous...
I fall prey to the enemy's schemes here and there. A longing look from a cute guy gets my vivid writer's imagination wandering.
But then God brings me back to reality and shows me how the story would really end: the deep hurt that would be hard to forgive, the dividing of assets, the step-moms and step-dads, the sad looks on my children's faces...
I'm no fool.
Like the Shulamite woman learned over time, the stomach-flipping initial wedding-night throes of passion may fade and change.
But they are replaced by a more mature and deeper sensuality of those who know each other intensely, with a lovemaking that's much more than sex, hotter and more fulfilling and God-blessed than any extramarital affair could purport to supply.
Let my lover come into his garden
and taste its choice fruits.
Song of Solomon 4:16
