Live the Song – Kiss Me

Welcome to my new series Live the Song.

Each Thursday in 2015 we will focus on just a few verses from Song of Songs as we look for inspiration on how to create the kind of passion in marriage that God desires, and make a plan to put it into action. So here we go…

Solomon’s Song of Songs.


Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
    for your love is more delightful than wine.

It starts with a kiss… her passion for him started with a kiss. Not a peck on the cheek as he leaves for work, or a harried kiss as he enters into the chaos of home.  A mind numbing connection that makes you forget all the other junk that you are dealing with. A kiss that warms and relaxes you like a smooth glass of wine. It takes time, it takes disconnecting from distractions,  and it takes allowing yourself to receive. 

This week –

1. Have a make out session like you used to – that means clothes on, maybe in a car or on the couch. Just enjoy kissing for the sake of kissing.

2. Make a commitment to greet each other with a 15 second kiss every day this week.

3. Fall asleep lip to lip.

It Begins with a Kiss

Song of Songs 1:2 Let him smother me with kisses from his mouth, for your love is better than wine.

It begins with a kiss.

I was talking to my husband the other day about kissing. You know there are times when he is kissing me and it’s nice and all, but I have this feeling that he is not completely there. And there are other times, when all I can say is “wow”. It just kind of takes my breath away. Those times when he knows I am sad or upset or just needs some extra loving, he can kiss me and every thing just melts away. It is as if he has lifted the smudge from my body and my mind and it makes everything better.

So what is different? He is in tune to me and what I am going through. He is totally focused on me. He lingers long enough until he can tell he has made a difference. It begins with a kiss.

Your mission this week is to kiss your husband like you mean it. Linger a little longer, tune into him and transport him to another place. It will make a world of difference
