He took me home with him for a festive meal, but his eyes feasted on me! Song of Solomon 2:4b (TM)
Having just celebrated Valentines Day, I’ve been thinking a lot about love and sex. I believe that the most powerful aphrodisiac in the world is simply to be desired – to feel that unmistakable knowledge that you are wanted by another. The woman in the Song of Solomon is taken home by her lover for a feast, but when she sees that look in his eye – she knows that she is the banquet on which he is longing to feast. What is her response? See the line before…
All I want is to sit in his shade, to taste and savor his delicious love.
Communicating your desire – your holy lust and sexual appetite for your spouse – shouldn’t be confined to Valentine’s Day or an anniversary. It should be woven in to the daily fabric of your relationship.
