Judging a Book by its Coverage (50 Shades of What??)

A Holy Romance

Somewhere along the line

I heard this wise advice

The first lover to say no

is always in the right

~

For shades of gray can vary

and some are black as coal

if selfishness is reigning

and true love is not the goal

~

 But I prefer a Holy Romance

between a Lover and His bride

where He sacrifices all He has

to give her everlasting life.

Husbands, love your wives,

just as Christ loved the church

and gave himself up for her to make her holy,

cleansing her by the washing with water

through the word,

Ephesians 5:25-26

There’s been a lot of media coverage about a certain shady novel and movie.

So even though I have zero interest in anything within the erotica/porn genre,

I’ve been exposed to some of the hype over it.

I spent most of Valentine’s Day weekend

scrutinizing my inspirational mystery romance manuscript

looking for flaws in grammar and such,

until my eyes were ready to fall out of my head.

But going on lovely walks with my handsome husband helped save me.

And would you believe that sweet guy

even gave me roses

while I was editing the romantic part of my novel?

I love my man.

And I appreciate that he’s a gentleman.

If you’re wondering what prompted this post,

check the link (I’ll include it at the end) that’s written by a woman

who wishes (sort of) that she hadn’t gone to see the movie

 that’s based on the book everyone’s talking about.

It makes my concern about a little old kiss

between two of my characters

seem… well… so… innocent.

I love a Holy Romance.

Do you?
