Song of Songs (Solomon)

Day 176

5 more days of phase one south beach.  :)   Come on carbs!!!   hahahah! 

We are still TRYING to clip of me singing at church on Sunday night.  What we first tried didn't work.  We are getting on DVD tomorrow from the church and we'll see if we can get it up then.  Should be able to!  Check back tomorrow.  

short entry again today--Hannalee is either sick or getting teeth.  I think its teeth.  She's had diarrhea for 24 hours, her bottom is raw-red but she's sleeping and eating and drinking.  She's supposed to get shots in 20 minutes, don't know if they'll give them to her or if I want to wait till she feel better anyway...but then I think....why get better and then gets shots and feel worse all over again! Hum.......we'll see what they say.  

This is a love song really.   It celebrates the joy and intimacy of the romantic love between a man and a woman.  This tender yet passionate picture of physical loves affirms the sanctity  of marriage and has often been seen as mirroring God's unconditional love for his people.  The readings go back and forth between "Beloved" and "Lover"......the bride and groom. This is love in its most intimate form....can easily draw a parallel between Christ and his bride, the church.  

tomorrow:   Isaiah 1-4
