16 My beloved is mine, and I am His. He feeds His flock among the lilies.
17 Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away, turn my beloved, and be like a gazelle or a young stag upon the mountains of Bether (Song of Solomon 2:16, 17).
The mountains of Bether means “separation.” The Sulemite and the Beloved belong to each other, yet there are times when they must part from one another. Though he is diligent to feed his flocks well, obeying the laws of nature, he must also obey the laws of God. That’s why she warns him not to come around at night, but to wait to see her in the morning light. Night brings too many temptations with it.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
