"Make haste, my Beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of spices." Song of Solomon 8:14
My Beloved Bridegroom ...
Oh, how I look forward to your return and our meeting together on the mountains of spices, where the sweet aroma of our devoted love for one another will permeate the air declaring to all our everlasting love for one another.
When you first spoke to me of your love for me - I was overwhelmed that someone so wonderful as yourself could love someone like me. But you have proved to me over and over that your love is everlasting. I haven't always been so lovable but that never changed your mind about loving me.
When you asked me if I wanted to spend eternity with you in a place that you would prepare especially for me - I was in awe. That meant that you wanted to spend eternity - forever and ever - with me. That brought such abounding joy to my heart.
When I was sentenced to die for the wrongs I had done, you stepped in and gave your life that I might live. I wept penitent tears of remorse that my wrongs had cost you your life. But I have never felted so loved as I did then. No one else would have loved me so much. Jubilation filled my heart when I learned that you had been resurrected and were going to prepare that place you told me about and would return to take me there when it was ready. I want you to know that I have been trying to prepare for your return so that I will be ready to go with you when you come for me.
Out of the abundant love that fills my heart for you, I want to tell you that I am so euphoric that I am Yours and You are mine. My heart knows but one true love - the love I have for you. My deepest longing is to be one with you forever. How I cherish the thought of being able to place my hand in yours and walk side by side with you throughout eternity. What joy we shall have as we delight in one another!
I have read and re-read the letters you sent to me and stored up the words in my heart that I might remain true to you no matter how long I have to wait for your return. Because they are so full of loving re-assurance of your eternal love for me they strengthen my heart and give me the encouragement I need during this time of waiting. You so lovingly and willingly poured out your life for me, now I willingly give all of myself to you without reserve.
Come, My Beloved - I Await You!
"Place me like a seal over your heart or like a seal on your arm."

Music: Heavenly Sunlight
Heavenly sunlight, Heavenly sunlight, flooding my soul with glory divine.
In the bright sunlight, ever rejoicing, pressing my way to mansions above;
Singing His praises gladly I'm walking, walking in sunlight, sunlight of love.
