Ferocity of Love
“Put me like a seal over your heart,
Like a seal on your arm.
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy is as severe as Sheol;
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
The very flame of the LORD.
7“Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor will rivers overflow it…”
Song of Solomon 8: 6-7
This is the verse that my late-husband, Jason, and I chose to mark our marriage, celebrated on December 17, 2000. We loved the thought of love being the very flame of the LORD.
When Jason went to heaven in 2007 it happened during Holy Week. This year, his angel-anniversary falls on today, April 2nd, Good Friday.
