"Oh, Love!" (Song of Solomon 2:4) He brought me to the banqueting house, And His banner over me was love.
The Shulamite bride was brought to Solmon's table as a result of .... pure, unadulterated love. His love spread over her like a banner or a flag that waved high and proudly in the sky for the entire nation to behold. The thing that's the most striking about this woman however, is not her natural beauty or sensual asthetics, but that she RECIPROCATED in full the gift of love that was granted unto her. She had no reservations and she rose to the occassion. This woman gave love back. This woman rested with confidence, secure in her position of being underneath the banner that waved so lovingly overhead. Selah.
I exalt Thee Oh Lord for the lovingkindness You show to me not just today, but all days. Especially the days I least deserve it. Amen.
