“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
Come with me
Lord, two doves have perched outside my office window this week. As I work I hear their rhythmic lullaby.
Coo, coo, coo…
I wonder what they are singing.
I imagine they are singing with You, Lord.
Are you inviting me to join in this praise chorus?
I hear You say softly, “Come with me.”
I pause and as they coo, I silently pray with them, “Lord… Lord… Lord…”
Ahhh, the winter has past…the season of spring has come…Your invitation in all of nature shouts to us still hibernating….
“Come with me, my beautiful one.”
Lord, Your love is my invitation.
