A Holy Romance
Somewhere along the line
I heard this wise advice
The first lover to say no
is always in the right
For shades of gray can vary
and some are black as coal
if selfishness is reigning
and true love is not the goal
But I prefer a Holy Romance
between a Lover and His bride
where He sacrifices all He has
to give her everlasting life.

Husbands, love your wives,
just as Christ loved the church
and gave himself up for her to make her holy,
cleansing her by the washing with water
through the word,
There’s been a lot of media coverage about a certain shady novel and movie.
So even though I have zero interest in anything within the erotica/porn genre,
I’ve been exposed to some of the hype over it.
I spent most of Valentine’s Day weekend
scrutinizing my inspirational mystery romance manuscript
looking for flaws in grammar and such,
until my eyes were ready to fall out of my head.
But going on lovely walks with my handsome husband helped save me.
And would you believe that sweet guy
even gave me roses
while I was editing the romantic part of my novel?

I love my man.
And I appreciate that he’s a gentleman.
If you’re wondering what prompted this post,
check the link (I’ll include it at the end) that’s written by a woman
who wishes (sort of) that she hadn’t gone to see the movie
that’s based on the book everyone’s talking about.
It makes my concern about a little old kiss
between two of my characters
seem… well… so… innocent.
I love a Holy Romance.
