Wisdom From the Word
“6 My dear lover glows with health
He’s one in a million.
There’s no one quite like him!
My golden one, pure and untarnished,
with raven black curls tumbling across his shoulders.
His eyes are like doves, soft and bright,
but deep-set, brimming with meaning, like wells of water.
His face is rugged, his beard smells like sage,
His voice, his words, warm and reassuring.
Fine muscles ripple beneath his skin,
quiet and beautiful.
His torso is the work of a sculptor,
hard and smooth as ivory.
He stands tall, like a cedar,
strong and deep-rooted,
A rugged mountain of a man,
aromatic with wood and stone.
His words are kisses, his kisses words”
Everything about him delights me, thrills me
through and through!
That’s my lover, that’s my man,
– Song Of Songs 5: 6-16 (The Message)
“Never Take Love for Granted
15-16 Do you know the saying, “Drink from your own rain barrel,
draw water from your own spring-fed well”?
It’s true. Otherwise, you may one day come home
and find your barrel empty and your well polluted.
17-20 Your spring water is for you and you only,
not to be passed around among strangers.
Bless your fresh-flowing fountain!”
“ Enjoy the wife you married as a young man!
Lovely as an angel, beautiful as a rose—
don’t ever quit taking delight in her body.
Never take her love for granted!
Why would you trade enduring intimacies for cheap thrills with a whore?
for dalliance with a promiscuous stranger?”
– Proverbs 5:15-20 ( The Message.)
Keep Me Real, Lord!
“Lord, help me to receive my sexuality as a gift from you, a loving God. Help me to cherish it as the gift it is. As I move towards my mate help it to be with love, connection and passion. Teach me to invite, embrace, nurture, and delight in our intimacy. Thank you Lord.”
