“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 SONGS 2:10-13
Do you hear God calling you, beckoning you to come with Him and see the season of singing?
Do you marvel at His beauty that He shares with you in His land?
His voice calls, “my beautiful child, my darling son or daughter, come with me and see.”
See with eyes of wonder the hand that created the seasons, the Almighty is His name.
See the winter departed and the sweet tiny flowers that cling as a carpet to the ground in place of the cold white mass.
See the blossoms spread their beauty far and wide beyond what the eye can behold. Smell their fragrance across the countryside.
Draw a deep breath and take in the beauty He has created to share with you His beloved son or daughter.
He beckons you to take notice; He calls you by name.
He creates this beauty to captivate your heart and to draw you ever closer to His heart.
His heart is beautiful, majestic, and creative.
Our God’s majesty has no limits, and it fills us to overflowing with the breathtaking canvas of His earth. He creates stroke upon stroke, of copious
color, and a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds.
The voice of the sweet songbird echoes across the fields of deep dark green.
The birds sing out their praises to our God.
The land is full or His glory and we lift our hearts towards heaven in awe of the season.
The month of May draws to a close as I draw one final deep breath, filling my soul with the beauty of the ‘One’ who created it all.
The cooing of the dove reverberates throughout the land.
The season of singing has come, arise beautiful one and go with your God to share His beauty; gratefully cherishing glimpses He will display to
you and share with you His child.
God loves you greatly, and He has created this for you to enjoy.
Does His love burn in your heart and leave a lasting impression on your soul? Why not ask Him to make it so that you have eyes to see and ears
to hear His Word? His living Word is love itself.
Go forth this day and remember the beauty of the month of May. Let it be a reminder of His nearness, His grace, His beauty for us to behold all
year long, and all our lives long.
Behold it, cherish it, and draw close to our God.
Open your heart to His Living Word, displayed in royal splendor for all who will drink deeply.
May we sing along with all creation to our God for the seasons He in His wisdom has created!
And may we take many long walks with the lover of our souls, now and for eternity, drinking deeply of His love.
