Happy Monday! Let’s start the week off with a Marvelous Marriage Moment.

Desmond and Clara Nistetter (My Daddy and Mama)

My Mama and Daddy dated each other throughout their marriage. Dated? Yes, they dated. They loved going out to dinner as a couple and with others.

My Husband … My Love Fragrance

How beautiful is your love, my Beloved! 
How much better is your love than wine, 
and the fragrance of your oils than any spice! 
Adapted from Song of Solomon 4:10

Heaven’s Fragrance

Beauty embraces your love.
Bouquets sweeten your lips.
Fragrance spices your kisses.
Incense follows your walk.
You are altogether lovely.
You are heaven’s fragrance
enfolding my very being.

How beautiful is your love.
The Fragrance of Love
is my Beloved!
