Since I’m a bit of a romantic, I am glad that there is at least one blessing in the wonderful love song, the Song of Solomon. After listing several physical attributes of the one he loves (including that none of her teeth are missing), the writer continues to sing the praises of his beloved’s virtues: “My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, pure to her who bore her. The young women saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her.”
She is fortunate indeed to be chosen, treasured, and loved so deeply. These are desires that run deep within the heart of most women. Men too have desires and need to know that they are valued, loved, and respected. For those of us whom God has blessed with a spouse, I pray that we take the time to sing a love song to our beloved. Go ahead and read through Solomon’s Song if a little inspiration is needed, then sing out. Married love is a wonderful gift from God, and a blessing that is meant to last a lifetime.
