Song of Solomon - Chapter 2:10-13 My lover spoke and said to me, "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."

Today is a milestone of sorts. Two weeks from today Lisa and I will be married, remarried. I have to say that I never, ever, would have thought that some day I would be “remarrying” any one. Carol and I were going to grow old together. I suppose it is nearly inevitable that one spouse will die before the other, but not at 50 yrs old. My thinking was that sometime well into old age one of us would be widowed and the other would live out the days that way. Things didn’t work out that way.
Two weeks from today we’re getting married. To me, this is such an incredible testament to God’s grace. God has healed our hearts and given us the capacity to love, romantically, once again. That’s incredible!
I came across the above scripture from the Song of Solomon book of the Bible. I love it! I love Lisa.
Thank you, Lord, for the way you continue to do miracles.
Two weeks....
