Song of Solomon 2:8-14

Song of Solomon Chapter 2:8-14   Listen to the voice of the beloved as He calls to you:    “ Rise up, my love, my fair one and come away.   For lo, winter is past, the rain is over and gone.   The flowers appear on the earth.   The time of singing has come…”   Do those words move your soul?   I think you would have to be a bit wooden, not to mention insensitive,  to no...
