THE Daughters of Jerusalem
Where has your beloved gone,
O fairest among women?
Where has your beloved turned aside,
That we may seek him with you?
THE Shulamite
My beloved has gone to his garden,
To the beds of spices,
To feed his flock in the gardens,
And to gather lilies.
I am my beloved’s,
And my beloved is mine.
He feeds his flock among the lilies.

Song of Solomon 6: 1-3

Good Morning Ladies,

I've never done a study on Song of Solomon, but as I was reading this passage I was wondering about its significance and if it had any or was it just a dialogue between the women. And then it struck me that the Shulamites Beloved was not with her (obvious) and yet she knew where he has and that he had not left or abandoned her.
I think many times we feel this way about the Lord. We are unable to see Him and often don't hear His voice or feel His presence and yet HE NEVER LEAVES OUR SIDE. He is an ever present help in times of need.

I hope you all feel His nearness today!

Oh how lovely the abc's are working in the Song of Soloman! It is a great reminder on any day that our God never will forsake us! Blessings on your day Cori!!

Cori, these words are so comforting. There have been so many times in my life when I did not feel His presence, but I knew the Lord was with me. These are moments when He tests our faith. But, oh, how sweet is that moment when we sense His Holy Spirit minister to us once again. Thank you for sharing these beautiful words. Many blessings.

Oops! I'm suffering from major brain blips. I woke up this morning and thought, "I've got to get that post up. Sorry! Maybe I'll post another ABC tomorrow...or not.

Oh! I started by posting the Letter "F" today until I realized "F" stood for "Fairmaiden" who commented last week on my letter "F."
I think I need a vacation!

I hope you day goes better then mine :0!

xoxo Cori

Nice analysis of these verses of Song of Solomon Cori!

Thank you so much for letting me know about the sweet peas...bella has been eating them(they are actually snow peas that have blossomed) and throwing up! Now I know why. She loves them and we find her chewing on the plant. It didn't help that we would give her snow peas. Are the snow peas toxic too, or just the flowers and leaves?

I have studied the Song of Solomon...I have many books on the Song of Solomon...I have an in depth CD teaching series by Mike Bickle on the Song of Solomon, it's so good. Everything has meaning. The lilies, the garden, the spices. I'll look it up for you because I haven't studied it in a few years and can't remember what they all mean. I'll get back to you.

Thanks, Cori!!

I feel it!! I feel His nearness!!

Yes, sometimes we feel alone and discouraged--our testing time--but He is always there, ALWAYS!
