Oh Beautiful One

 
 
'Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.
 
See!  The winter is past;  the rains are over and gone.
 
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
 
The fig tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.'
-  Song of Solomon 2:10-13  -
 
The 4th in a series of Sabbath Scriptures as we embrace The Year of Beautiful!

  5. To think that God loves His bride (those of us in Jesus Christ), with such an intimate romantic love nearly takes my breath away! These are incredibly beautiful verses to me!

    1. Many in the church haven't quite known what to do with these chapters ... but there are good, very good reasons that they are in God's Word. Beautiful, beautiful ... His love for us, and the love between two souls united in marriage.

      Blessings on you this week, Cynthia ...

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
