Adults often don’t grasp mature, Christian love. Chuck Swindoll told about the guy who fell in love with an opera singer. He hardly knew her, since his only view of the singer was through binoculars--from the third balcony. But he was convinced he could live happily ever after married to a voice like that. He scarcely noticed she was considerably older than he. Nor did he care that she walked with a limp. Her mezzo-soprano voice would take them through whatever might come. After a whirlwind romance and a hurry-up ceremony, they were off for their honeymoon together. She began to prepare for their first night together. As he watched, his chin dropped to his chest. She plucked out her glass eye and plopped it into a container on the nightstand. She pulled off her wig, ripped off her false eyelashes, yanked out her dentures, unstrapped her artificial leg, and smiled at him as she slipped off her glasses that hid her hearing aid. Stunned and horrified, he gasped, "For goodness’ sake, woman, sing, sing, SING" Sam Levinson once said, "Love at first sight is nothing special. It’s when two people have been looking at each other for years that it becomes a miracle." In the play, "My Fair Lady," Eliza is being courted by Freddy, who writes to her daily of his love for her. Eliza’s response to his notes is to cry out in frustration: "Words Words I’m so sick of words Don’t talk of stars burning above. If you’re in love, show me Don’t talk of love lasting through time. Make me no undying vow. Show me now"
