Abigail, the comely daughter of Carmel.
“When we had parted, my eyes rebelled and would not allow me to look away. You are etched forever in my waking memory. I stare up at passing clouds only to see the outline of your face.
I long for sleep, so in the night, you might invade my dreams. So when I saw that you had turned back ever so slightly to see me standing there, my heart soared in ecstasy. I have been downcast in my imaginings for the desperate need of your company. Yet, my delight resounds with heated passion at the mere thought of your embrace. I vividly recall your stunning beauty, depth of wisdom, and your unconquerable leap of faith. I long to caress you and seek shelter in your arms, Abigail. You spark in me an unquenchable fire scorching my soul with loves eternal promise. I would be happy to satisfy your every wish, want, and desire. I would place you on a pedestal higher than my anointed throne. Say yes to be my wife, and such happiness you have never known will be ours forevermore.
Gideon: The Sound and the Glory. David: God’s Chosen Crucible.
Your David, son of Jesse.
