Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me, Heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
And when you speak Angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose
Songwriters: David Mack / Guglielmi Luis Guglielmo / Gassion Edith Giovanna

It has been said that one cannot travel in Paris without hearing this song. I agree and not surprised. It evokes beautiful memories of romance and fulfilled love. La vie en rose can be translated as life in pink or as a metaphor for seeing the world through rose-colored glasses. It depicts the transformation of our senses that one undergoes when in love.
Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, its jealousy as enduring as the grave. Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame. Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it. If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.
Song of Songs 8:6-7 (NLT)
The Song of Solomon is also known as The Song of Songs. Translated from Hebrew, it means the best or finest of all. It describes a dialogue between a bride and bridegroom and the love they share. It is also a metaphor for the love that Jesus Christ has for His bride, the Church. It is the all consuming love that God has for mankind and His creation.
We should always celebrate love and embrace the wondrous elation and emotions that accompany it. God honors love between a man and woman under the sacred bond of marriage. This is His plan and He has blessed it from the beginning with the first marriage of Adam and Eve. A noble love will transform and enable us to see the world and our spouse the way He intended.
La vie en dieu…life in God.
Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
