Pink Lovely

Panel Top animated hummingbird

I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.
Like a lily among thorns is
my darling among the maidens.
Like an apple tree among the trees
of the forest is my lover among the young men.
I delight to sit in his shade,
and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
He has taken me to the banquet hall,
and his banner over me is love.

Song Of Songs 2:2-4

My Godly Friend
animated hummingbird
One morning God looked down on me,
And heard my painful moan,
I told Him I was overwhelmed,
I felt so much alone.
bullet
He sent a flower to bring me cheer,
But I did not see its bloom,
So then He sent a whole bouquet,
Which did not dispel my gloom.
bullet
Next, He gave me bright sunshine,
And I complained about the glare,
So then He offered shade to me,
But I did not see it there.
bullet
I cried some more in loneliness,
God thought, "What can I send?"
So in His wisdom and His grace,
He sent to me a friend.
bullet
He sent to me a Godly friend,
An extension of Himself,
A friend, who'd guide me back to Him,
She knew Him so well, herself.
bullet
She'd give to me her fondest love,
And would love me without end,
She would not be God's substitute,
Yet, on her, I could depend.
bullet
She'd laugh with me and cry with me,
And our secrets, we would share,
She'd be someone I'd fully trust,
She always would be there.
bullet
She might not fully understand
My manner nor my way,
But He'd send her just to be my friend,
Bade her love me anyway.
bullet
God told me that He loved me,
He was sending me the best,
And there you were, with open arms,
I knew I had been blessed.
