Since my Valentine Giveaway kicked-off yesterday, I thought it appropriate to talk Romance today.
So, I'm curious, what is the most romantic story you've ever experienced? I say experience because it could be one that happened in real-life, one that you've read, or one that you've seen on T.V. or the big screen. But for it to be awarded the "MOST ROMANTIC" in your opinion, it must have been experienced. Right?
Thinking of such things is great fodder for writers, especially romance writers. I've got a few picks that come to the top of my mind, each for a different reason.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (Book and Movie Versions) for the tortured soul aspect, and because Darcy needs Elizabeth, and vise-versa!
The Story of Us (A movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Bruce Willis) for the "reality" factor, and that I totally believe growing old together is the absolute greatest gift God can give a couple.
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks (Book and Movie) for young love surviving and prevailing, and the "growing old together" factor, of course.
I would love to hear what comes to your mind? And remember, if you want to be entered to win the couples devotional: Devotions for a Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas, leave your e-mail addy and "Valentine's Draw" within your comment.
