This is the year of my 30th wedding anniversary. Yep! We’re 30 years strong! I give all glory to God that my wife and I are still going strong. Of course we’ve had our ups and downs, but we have discovered…

One of the keys to a healthy, Godly marriage is not that you have more laughs than tears, but that your laughs are more powerful than your tears.

I’m an ordained minister and my wife is a Gospel Jazz artist, but we realize that a healthy marriage has balance. Remember this…

There’s a time for WORSHIP and a time for ROMANCE, and you get ROMANTIC with a HYMNAL.

There’s nothing unholy about a good love song either. Even a suggestive love song can have it’s place when it pertains to your marriage. My wife and I love old school love songs. We encourage you to keep your love fresh with the same love songs that brought you together. Let them take you back to the times, places and even aromas of when your love was new. Experience new things together. Never forget to find joy in one another.

Song of Solomon confirms that romance and intimacy is not unholy when it comes to marriage.

Song of Solomon 1:2 (KJV)

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.

Song of Solomon 7:1-3 (NKJV)

How beautiful are your feet in sandals,
O prince’s daughter!
The curves of your thighs are like jewels,
The work of the hands of a skillful workman.
Your navel is a rounded goblet;
It lacks no blended beverage.
Your waist is a heap of wheat
Set about with lilies.
Your two breasts are like two fawns,
Twins of a gazelle.

If you’ve never read Song of Solomon, you’ve check out how it celebrates love and romance.

Also please check out our video above if you haven’t already. We love sharing our love for Old School Music while showing love for one another…while supporting the artists who created it.

We call them SONday Blessing videos, because we make them on SONday afternoons and share them on my wife’s fanpage (link at the bottom of my blog) and on her You Tube Channel (Mechelle Johnson).

I hope they inspire and bless your marriage.



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
