Soothing balm

These words, from this week's lectionary, speak words I need to hear. I hope that they bring soothing and healing for you.

My lover spoke and said to me:
 "Arise my darling, my beautiful one, 
and come with me. 
See! The winter is past; 
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land. 
the fig tree forms its early fruit
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.
Song of Solomon 2: 10-13
