Wildly, Madly, Passionately in Love

Fact or fiction, the world’s greatest lovers would include Romeo and Juliet;  Antony and Cleopatra; Lancelot and Guinevere; Jane Eyre and Rochester;  Kay and Richard…Eh, what can I say?  Forty-eight years ago when my dashing Italiano took my hand in marriage, I was wildly, madly, passionately in love.  I still am.  On that September day in 1963, I vowed to bind my life to his, “For better, for worse; for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; ’til death do us part.”  And, over the years, we’ve experienced it all, except the last–“til death us do part.”

He is my good bro; my BFF; and my ever-faithful “hottie.”  Before you think me sacrilegious or my honesty brings a blush to your cheeks, God uses the very same terms to illustrate the closeness Jesus wants to have with me.  The Savior wants  a total mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual connection–no holds barred!  Wow!  When He said, “I will be your husband,” He meant in the ultimate sense of relationship.  Wildly, madly, passionately in love–think of the implications!

Whether  you’re married to a saint (one set apart by God);  a “saint in the making”; or you walk alone, God’s offer to be your spouse is as real,  vital, and sensual as the touch of a lover’s hand.   One may describe the eternity-long love affair God desires is like old cheese or fine wine (so I’m told); it only gets better with age.
