My love and me
Song of Solomon 2: 10-13
10 My beloved spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, come with me.
11 See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
12 Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.”
Those long lazy days of summer
when it seemed that the whole world came in twos
When the reality of humanity hit home -
created in the image of God
meant for relationship
for that closeness
where lines are blurred
and it's hard to tell where one finishes and the other begins
and in the midst of it all
there you are, O God
intimately involved with your creation
loving us into being
loving us all through life
loving us through death and new beginnings
created and nurtured in love for all time
The Divine mystery.
Thanks be to God.
