It is my hope and prayer as we look forward to being married in 78 days that I too will be proactive in being romantic towards him. Here are some snippets from Love that Lasts, chapter seven on the purpose of romance in marriage:
"Romance is to be continually practiced, like an art. The basic tools that you asa budding artist must bring to your bring to your craft include a heart of humility, a spirit of servanthood, a biblical understanding of marriage, and a fervent desire to know and love your spouse as consistently and creatively as possible."
"The goal of marriage is to train your attractions, affections, and desires to fit only one person."
"Romance to us simply means communicating - in as many consistent creativeways as we can - that our spouse is the most important, precious, desirable person we will ever know."
"God's ultimate purpose for romance is the same as his purpose for marriage:to bring himself glory, and to bring us blessing, and to demonstrate theremarkable relationship between Christ and the Church."
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.
