I just finished my manuscript for my next book to be released, DESPERATE HEARTS, which is my sequel to ONE OF A KIND! Even though I now have to start the editing process, I always feel a huge sense of accomplishment whenever I complete a manuscript. And since DESPERATE HEARTS is a sweet yet dramatic love story, I felt compelled to write this blog about love. As to its release date, I’m not sure yet, but hopefully sometime this year (preferably in October.)
Song of Solomon 8:6 says: “For love is as strong as death . . . the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.” (The Holy Bible in the KJV)
As most of you probably know, I love writing stories about relationships. I also enjoy not only adding touches of humor to them, but I like to add a little romance as well. God created humans with the capacity to express love. However, in our imperfect human society, love is disintegrating. Therefore, some may wonder, Is it gullible or naïve to think that enduring, mutual love can last forever?
True love between a man and a woman can be exceedingly strong, firm, and unyielding. The Bible well demonstrates this in The Song of Solomon 1:1-14 and 8:14 where it tells of the unwavering love that existed between a shepherd boy and a country girl. This song also reveals that despite all his splendor and riches, the king could not gain the love of that beautiful girl, for she was saving her heart and her love for her one and only true love. She thus showed that genuine love cannot be bought with material things.
God purposed that love and marriage bring joy to humans, yet that does not mean that we will not experience adversities in association with the two. But as long as we do things His way, our problems will be fewer.
Well, good night, and HAPPY READING. And as always, this is from my heart to yours.
