One lady writes as follows: “The lingerie store where my aunt works was crowded with shoppers selecting Valentine’s Day gifts. A young businessman came to the register with a lacy black negligee. My aunt noticed that the next customer, an elderly farmer, was holding a long flannel nightgown and kept glancing at the younger man’s sexier choice. When it was his turn, the farmer placed the nightgown on the counter and inquired. ‘Would you have anything in black flannel?’”

There are two myths about physical intimacy (i.e. sex).  One is that having religion is its death knell (the old ball and chain).  And the other is that not having religion is its life blood (playing the field).  Research now reveals the opposite to be true.  The report is entitled, The Ties That Bind, Is Faith A Global Force For Good Or Bad For The Family?  It is the largest study ever undertaken on the topic with data gathered worldwide.  (Also, this was not done by a Christian organization.)  And their findings when it comes to physical intimacy?  The more religious a couple is: the more occurrences, passion and satisfaction is found in that part of their relationship. And the less religious a couple is: the less occurrences, passion and satisfaction is found in that part of their relationship.

The bottom line?  The greatest romantics in the world are those who come to the church altar to be married before God and then who come back to church again and again to worship God.  Those are the facts of life.


GENESIS (29:11) – And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

● The most important things in life can’t be seen.  That’s why we close our eyes when we kiss, pray and dream … ● In the search for your true prince, you may kiss a frog or two along the way … ● The best kiss is the one that has been exchanged a thousand times between the eyes before it ever reaches the lips… ● Kiss.  The best way to stop your wife from talking … ● Kissing is a means of getting two people so close together that they can’t see anything wrong with each other … ● A woman still remembers the first kiss long after a man has forgotten the last one … ● You may conquer with the sword, but you are conquered with a kiss … ●  Hershey makes a million kisses a day, I’m just asking for one … ● People who throw kisses are hopelessly lazy … ● The sound of a kiss is not as loud as a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer … ● Kisses are sweeter than whine …  ● High heels were invented by a woman tired of being kissed on the forehead … ● Can I borrow a kiss?  I promise to give it back! … ● The best part of a kiss is right before the first one … ● A kiss without a hug is like a flower without the fragrance … ● I’m saving all of my kisses for the one who is going to be my one Mr. or my one Mrs.

SONG OF SOLOMON  (1:2)  Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: thy love is better than wine.
