“Your two breasts are like two fawns, life twin fawns of a gazelle that browse among the lilies.” Song of Songs 4:2 NIV

“All beautiful you are, my darling; there in no flaw in you.” Song of Songs 4:7 NIV

When it’s time to teach my Sanctuary Class these passages from the Song of Songs, or The Song of Solomon as the KJV calls the book, students and teacher often grow a little uncomfortable. As you can see from the Scriptures I chose to post today, the verses are quite descriptive. Some are humorous, and it is tough not to giggle.

The lovers in this Bible book suffer pure torture when they are separated from each other. And oh my goodness! When they get back together, the intimacy is enough to make one want to skip a few pages!  The mental pictures are sensuous and suggestive and can make a shy person blush.

Of course, in this day and time, I doubt any female would respond favorably to these words of passion: “Your eyes behind your veil are doves. Your hair is like a flock of goats…Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing.” Song of Songs: 4:1-2.

Can you imagine your sweetheart whispering these lyrics in your ear? Me either.

With these thoughts in mind, I wonder why I worry about the love scenes I write in my books.

Good news! Sarah: A Mission of Love is now available as of today in paperback and eBook.  You can find her at Amazon and Barnes and Nobel, and Prism Book Group.

She will soon be in local Christian bookstores.

Stay close. I’ll let you know when she arrives in other stores.
