This morning I spent a few quiet
moments reading the Song of Solomon. It was my first time since I kept it
for the day when I too was in love and preparing for marriage. I rejoiced in the joy, beauty, and love I found within this special book—it is no wonder Father God
included it within His Holy Word.
While reading, I took snapshots of phrases and passages which stood out to me. I will probably
continue sharing them as I try to finish within the next few days.

exactly that—unashamed delight.
