Day 251: Continuing to Keep it Simple

June 12, 2012

My cousin and his wife left on Tuesday. Given our exhaustion, I decided to commit a simple act of love for you that day: I let you pick a show for us to watch together while we relaxed on the couch. You chose “Frasier,” which we’re currently working our way through. While it was playing, I gave you a little neck massage.


Day 27: Song of Solomon

October 26, 2011

For my 27th act of love, I read to you from Song of Solomon and asked you to imagine that we were speaking to each other. Here are some verses that I emphasized as an expression of my thoughts for you:

    Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold, you are beautiful; your eyes are doves (1:15).

    As a lily among brambles, so is my love among the young women (2:2).

    You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you (4:7).

PS: Here’s one from our reading that I underplayed (though I’m sure those ANE women really swooned over it!)!

    Your neck is like the tower of David, built in rows of stone (4:4).
