You pursued her with unbridled passion. Your love burned endlessly. With a love only reserved for her you gazed into her eyes, and spoke so reassuringly, “I only have eyes for you.” In that moment you could have asked for the world, and she would’ve given it. Instead she gave you more-she gave you her heart.
Job loved his wife so much he made this covenant with God: “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look with lust at a young woman.”
How many men today could make such a pledge? For that fact, how many women? Very few.
Imagine if one stolen lustful glance would blind you for the remainder of your life. I have seen many gorgeous women, but not one is worth my sight. I need my vision. I want to spend the rest of my life gazing on and lusting for my wife.
Truly, it’s a challenge not to let one’s eyes go astray. However, daily, I remind myself that I am an old raisin; what sense does it make for me to try to bundle up with a plump grape?
When I have a sexy, beautiful, mature, experienced, luscious, and intelligent raisin that’s raisin’ our children?
Hang with your wife, as you age you’ll be glad you did.
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, and forever, I only have eyes for you.
For our GOOD FRIDAY, let’s remind our someone special that we still, after all these years, only have eyes for them. Remember, this is for the young and old alike, male and female-this philosophy starts when you’re young. And come back on Friday and tell us your story in the comments below. And as always – keep your head up.
