Bible Reading = Sexy Talk?

One thing that I love and am so thankful about my husband is how much he has encouraged me to read the word of God. He has done this since the beginning (even though it doesn't always get through to me). Something that I'll always remember was one thing that he and I did together on our honeymoon (don't worry, its not what you think ;-) was read Song of Songs together for the first time. We chose not to do it all at once but a chapter at a time. We read it responsively: Isaac read the part of Lover and I read the part of Beloved. It was a beautiful reminder of God's blessing on the marital union. And it was pretty steamy too!!

So maybe you and your spouse can also benefit from being reminded of God's love for you and His desire for you to receive pleasure and happiness in your marriage. Take the time this Valentine's Day to read Song of Songs "the romantic way" - I'm sure we will. ;-)

What a great word of encouragement! I think God included those passages in the Bible for husbands and wives!

Thanks for sharing

That's a great picture, Wani, and a great idea too. I think I'll ask Rog if we can read that responsively on the cruise!
