Day 153 Song of Solomon 1-8

I read today’s reading in The Message translation… I have to admit I blushed more than once, like when the woman exclaims:

 Run to me, dear lover.
   Come like a gazelle. Leap like a wild stag
   on the spice mountains.


 In all honesty it was a little difficult to get through.  It’s such a beautiful expression of love between a bride and her groom.  You can really sense the freshness, and the depth of love and desire for one another… It hurts right now, that’s all.
