So we continue more with the devotionals from the book on Songs in the key of Solomon: In the Word…and in the Mood by John and Anita Renfroe. This one is about the eyes. The questions that were given are as follows:
- Estimate the amount of time you spent gazing into each other’s eyes daily when you were dating. About how much time do you spend on eyeball to eyeball these days? More than ten minutes? Less than one?
- What do you think accounts for the change?
- Try to lock into a gaze with your mate. How long do you think you could look into each other’s eyes before you giggle or break the stare? If the eyes are indeed “windows to the soul”, perhaps you both need more time looking “into” each other, instead of “at” each other.
My husband’s answers.
- Can’t remember how often we would when dating. Now, probably less than a minute. I just think we don’t have to stare into each other’s eyes.
- We know we love each other and feel it.
- Not sure how long.
- I think we did for a while early on, but that fizzled out after a while. Yeah, it’s definitely a minute or less now. I still like eye contact during sex sometimes though for extra intensity.
- I definitely agree that we know we love each other and feel it.
- We probably wouldn’t last too long. I probably giggle more than you would.
