Rekindled Romance-Romantic Gestures

image

3 Your breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. 4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are the pools of Heshbon by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanonlooking toward Damascus. 5 Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like royal tapestry; the king is held captive by its tresses. 6 How beautiful you are and how pleasing, O love, with your delights! 7 Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit. 8 I said, “I will climb the palm tree; I will take hold of its fruit.” May your breasts be like the clusters of the vine, the fragrance of your breath like apples.9 and your mouth like the best wine. May the wine go straight to my lover, flowing gently over lips and teeth. 10 I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me. 11 Come, my lover, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the night in the villages. 12 Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom— there I will give you my love. 13 The mandrakes send out their fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my lover. (Song of Solomon 7:9-13)

Can you believe that this is scripture? Sounds like a sexy novel.  Keeping in mind that our marriages shouldn’t be sexless, our passion and romance for our spouses shouldn’t be non existent. After being married for a few years it is easy to forget about the romantic gestures that came so natural in the time prior. It is easy to take the one you married and love for granted. When you add jobs, kids and life in the mix sometimes couples put their love lives on hold. Although it’s easy to let the flame go out in our marriages we have to be intentional about rekindling the romance. Of course we shouldn’t only express our love during the month of February alone. But if you have noticed that the fire behind your romance has fizzled in your marriage, here are a few things that Could help us rekindle the romance in our marriages.

A Little Medicine

image

Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

At times we are so serious about life that we forget that laughter can be like medicine to our spirit. Laugh a Little. Now there are good things to laugh at according to us being followers of Christ. We don’t want to laugh or make fun of people and make them feel less of a person. Some people feel as though when reading scripture it is sooooooo serious. Now don’t get me wrong! Our souls are a serious matter. But sometimes I come across a few things that make me chuckle and I tend to think that God had quite of a sense of humor. Then there are times when reading I think of things and wonder if I’m the only one who laughed at that? To my surprise I found a few people who thought of some things just as I did and we laughed together. Hopefully no one take offense these are just jokes and humorous thoughts.

  • Genesis 2:21 — Is the Lord really an anesthesiologist? Perhaps, since this verse states that the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam.
  • Genesis 7 — The wealthiest rancher in the Bible? Probably Noah, as he had all the livestock while everyone else was liquidated. (Submitted by Dan Bates)
  • Genesis 2:21-22 — Is this the first mention of electronic equipment in the Bible? Some would say yes, because from Adam’s rib was created the first loud speaker.
  • Proverbs 28:25 — Obesity is a reward for trusting in God? Apparently so, as this verse states, “…he that putteth his trust in the Lord shall be made fat.”
  • Zechariah 5:1 — A food fight? This verse states, “Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.”

To Smart For Your Own Good

English: Portrait of a girl from Portugal(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Four people were in an airplane which was going to crash so they all had to parachute out. The problem was that there were only three parachutes so they began discussing who would get the chutes. The first man said that he ran an orphanage and that dozens of children depended on him for survival, so he took a chute and jumped out.

The second man said “I have a PhD in Nuclear Physics, Biology and Law and since I am the smartest man in the world, the world needs me,” so he jumped out.

An old retired farmer and a school girl were the two left. The old man said “You take the chute. I have lived a long and full life and I am looking forward to going to heaven.”

The school girl replied, “No need, there are still two parachutes left. The smartest man in the world just jumped out with my book bag.”

This is a reblog originally titled 1 schoolgirl, 3 men in a plane joke from Brad Stanton on “Give Me Five Minutes A Day and I’ll Give You a Happier More Successful Life!”

Make sure to go and visit his blog it’s full of great information that will help you achieve your goals in life.  It’s also contains lots of awesome humor:-)

Devil To Pay

imageThere was a Christian lady who lived next door to an atheist. Everyday, when the lady prayed, the atheist guy could hear her. He thought to himself, “She sure is crazy, praying all the time like that. Doesn’t she know there isn’t a God?”

Many times while she was praying, he would go to her house and harass her, saying “Lady, why do you pray all the time? Don’t you know there is no God?” But she kept on praying.

One day, she ran out of groceries. As usual, she was praying to the Lord explaining her situation and thanking Him for what He was gonna do.

AS USUAL, the atheist heard her praying and thought to himself. “Hmph . . .I’ll fix her.”

He went to the grocery store, bought a whole bunch of groceries, took them to her house, dropped them off on the front porch, rang the door bell and then hid in the bushes to see what she would do. When she opened the door and saw the groceries, she began to praise the Lord with all her heart, jumping, singing and shoutin’ everywhere!

The atheist then jumped out of the bushes and told her, “You ol’crazy lady, God didn’t buy you those groceries, I bought those groceries!”

Well, she broke out and started running down the street, shouting and praising the Lord. When he finally caught her, he asked what her problem was . . .

She said, “I knew the Lord would provide me with some groceries, but I didn’t know he was gonna make the devil pay for them!”

The only way to get love is to be lovable. It's very irritating if you have a lot of money. You'd like to think you could write a check: 'I'll buy a million dollars' worth of love.' But it doesn't work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get. - Warren Buffet
