Perspective



I found a love note today.

It wasn't hiding under my pillow.I didn't find it on the cabinet by the coffee pot this morning. It wasn't on the white board that hangs on our fridge and it wasn't on the bathroom mirror. But I found it! I found it!

I read it and thought, "This is for me? This is for me!"

My heart responded with a waltz and then a soft shoe that soon burst into the tango.

I read it again and again, over and over! His words captivated me!

I knew I was in love before I read the note, but after the first glimpse of what had been left for me today, my love was deeper, sweeter, my passion for Him reignited.

I heard His voice whispering the words to my heart.

My response, "let me hear you say it again!" My eyes fell back to the page and drank in the words.

"I have entered my garden, my treasure, my bride!" (Song of Solomon 5:1)

He was calling me

His treasure ...

His bride ...

"I gather myrrh with my spices and eat honeycomb with my honey.
I drink wine with my milk." (Song of Solomon 5:1)

He sounds like one crazy in love!

Drinking wine with milk?

Myrrh, spices, honeycomb,and honey?

He gathers them for me because I am His treasure and His bride ...

I would follow Him anywhere!

My heart responds with song ...

*"You fill up my senses, like a night in a forest
like the mountains in springtime,
like a walk in the rain,
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses come fill again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you
Let drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you
Come let me love you, come love me again."

He doesn't bring me flowers, He invites me into His garden
where flowers never die ...

He meets me there

calling me His treasure, His bride ...

I bask in the glow of our oneness ...

We are inseparable ...

for eternity ...

I am my Beloved's and He is mine ...

His banner over me is LOVE ...
(Song of Solomon 2:4)

Eternal LOVE ...

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever ..
Isaiah 40:8

I just love that Annie's Song. But it's not as perfect as the Song of Songs as a love song, is it? I'm like you, it makes my heart go pitty pat!
