Song of Songs 4:1-4


How beautiful you are, my darling!
    Oh, how beautiful!
    Your eyes behind your veil are doves.
Your hair is like a flock of goats

descending from the hills of Gilead.

Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn,

 coming up from the washing.

Each has its twin;
    not one of them is alone.
Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon;
    your mouth is lovely.
Your temples behind your veil
    are like the halves of a pomegranate.
Your neck is like the tower of David,
    built with courses of stone[i];
on it hang a thousand shields,
    all of them shields of warriors.
Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon. 

I kiss with my lips. I speak with my lips. I eat with my lips. But I don’t know if I think of my lips as a way to entice my husband.


When I was young, I remember my mom always putting on lip stick before we went out. It was this instant change to who she was and how she felt.

I am more of a chapstick girl. Really my entire family is pretty much addicted to it. We don’t leave home with out a stick in our pocket.

But maybe I need to think of using my lips as a way to transform from mom, to WOMAN. Maybe I need to pick up a few different colors of lipstick to provide an instant change in what mood is set in my marriage bed. Some bright red for classic elegance and sophistication, some wet luscious pink for playfulness and how about black? I wonder what that would do?

This week –

1. Try putting on lipstick to set the mood in bed.

2. Try to flirt with your husband by simply using your lips.

  1. If I decide to wear lipstick to bed, my husband actually knows what’s on the menu for lovemaking by the shade I have on. He likes to pick out lip color with me as we come up w/new ‘shade’ ideas.
