Song of Solomon 2:11-13
Â 11 See! The winter is past;
Â Â Â Â Â Â the rains are over and gone.
Â 12 Flowers appear on the earth;
Â Â Â Â Â Â the season of singing has come,
Â Â Â Â Â Â the cooing of doves
Â Â Â Â Â Â is heard in our land.
Â 13 The fig tree forms its early fruit;
Â Â Â Â Â Â the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Arise, come, my darling;
Â Â Â Â Â Â my beautiful one, come with me.”
A wonderful time to remind us all of new beginnings.
With the hard, cold winter……..there always comes a spring.
