As I consider this, it occurs to me that I don't know any romantic words. That's probably due as much to being a stickler about definitions as it is not having a very good track record with romance. For me, when I hear "romance," I hear meanings of "unreal," "emotional," and "contrived." (Some of the ladies probably have my name circulating on the prayer list just for saying that!)
What I mean is that a romance is not a word, or a sentence; it's an entire story. What seems romantic to one person may appear unwelcome and foolish to another, particularly if the other person is someone you really had your heart set upon impressing. And she isn't. At all.
There is a love story running throughout creation. In fact, there is none greater than the one about God and His wayward beloved. Perhaps it could even be called a "romance," if we mean that God has gone to the utmost lengths to win the love of another. But the story has to be taken as a whole, and this one's real. A couple of words, whatever they may be, cannot express the magnitude of what that love really means.
I have no problem with any of the words that have been mentioned so far. They are each facets of a wonderful gem.
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. Revelation 14:3
Why is it that no one but those in that group could learn the song? I suppose it is because it just doesn't fit anyone else's life experience. Even in this world, there are songs that singers won't attempt because it's not true for them. Nobody would believe them if they got it pitch perfect throughout, because that's not who they are and everyone knows it.
So, I hope I hear two words from the Lord; whether we'd call them romantic or not is not really important. They are: "Welcome home."
