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  - 

human beings

created in the image of God

meant for relationship

for intimacy

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.
