BATHSHEB 3'1m1f The love letters of David and Bathsheba

DAVID -- Dear mystery woman, I saw you washing yourself on the 
rooftop last night. They tell me your name is Sheba. But since 
you were washing, I'll call you BATHsheba.  Respectfully, 
David.

SHEBA -- Dear King David, I saw you watching me take a bath. You 
naughty boy. Respectfully, Bathsheba.

DAVID -- Dear Bathsheba, if we're going to be friends, let's not 
be formal. Call me Dave. Your friend, Dave.

SHEBA -- Dear Dave, As long as we're getting familiar with one 
another, call me Bath. Just you and I will know why. Lovingly, 
Bath.

DAVID -- Dear Bath, how would you like to come visit the royal 
palace?  With great anticipation, Dave.

SHEBA -- Dear Dave, I'm a married woman. But one peak at the 
palace wouldn't hurt.  With great anticipation, Bath.

DAVID -- Dearest Bath, had a wonderful time I had with you here 
at the palace last night. Hope you didn't get in trouble with 
your husband. Love, Dave.

SHEBA -- Dearest Dave, had a wonderful time I had with you at the 
palace last night. My husband didn't even know I was gone. Love, 
Bath.

DAVID -- My dearest Bath, miss you everso. Please visit me 
again. All my love, Dave.

SHEBA -- My dearest Dave, miss you everso. But I don't see how I 
could possibly see you again with my husband still around, if 
you catch my drift. Hugs and kisses, Bath.

SHEBA -- David, you creative little monarch, you. My husband 
just got marching orders. He goes into battle today. Could it be 
YOU are responsible? See you tonight. Bath.

DAVID -- My darling Bath, we were made for each other. Can't 
live without you. My arms around you, Dave.

SHEBA -- My darling Dave, we could be married, but for my 
husband, if you catch my drift. Holding you in my heart, Bath.

SHEBA -- David, you naughty boy, I just got word that my husband 
just got orders to go into the fiercest part of the battle. He 
doesn't stand a chance, does he? Forever yours, Bath.

SHEBA -- Dave, darling, just received confirmation that my 
husband was killed in battle. I don't know if I'll ever get over 
it. By the way I'm wearing a blue dress to the wedding. And 
please don't make a fuss over the ceremony. Just invite two or 
three thousand of our closest friends. You are forever in my 
heart, Bath.

DAVID -- Bath, darling, sorry to run out on you while you were 
still asleep, but, I woke up during the night and realized that 
my place was with my men in battle. Love, Dave.

SHEBA -- David, why didn't you tell me you already had two other 
wives. Signed, disappointed.

SHEBA -- David, I'm pregnant. Bathsheba.

SHEBA -- David, how come you never write me? Bathsheba.

DAVID -- Bathsheba, I was sorry to hear that you lost the baby. 
Meet me in the temple to confess our sins and pray. Love, David.

SHEBA -- David darling, Tears are still flowing as I think about 
our confession at the temple. I wanted you to be the first one 
to know: I'm pregnant again. Do you think this one will make it?

DAVID -- My darling Bathsheba, Congratulations! Yes, I think 
this one will make it all the way to the messiah. Praise God.  
Yours in the Lord, David.
