"With this Ring"

Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, by the gazelles and wild deer, not to awaken love until the time is right. (Song of Solomon 3:5)

Like many of my sisters across the nations, I watched Lifetime's "With this Ring." The movie started out with a statistic stating that 1 out of 2 black women will not marry. This statistic is alarming, but it doesn't make it an emergency. Society pressures women to have the ring, the home, the children and be financially stable by the age of 30. These expectations have left many of our sisters alone with the feeling that they have to do it on their own. Love is an emotion and shouldn't be made a demanded expectation. The bible makes it clear, love should not be aroused nor awakened until it so desires. A woman doesn't have to make herself available for love, just remain accessible to being loved. Focus on you and God will bring him to you in time at the right time! Be blessed:))
