Was it the day, after 15 years of marriage, and three months in the NICU, we brought our premature son home from the hospital?
“He gives the barren woman a home,
Making her the joyous mother of children.” Psalm 113:9 (ESV)
Was it the day in 2001, three months after September’s 911, and my husband losing his aerospace job in the midst of building, we moved into our long awaited home.
“He is not afraid of bad news;
His heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.” Psalm 112:7 (ESV)
Yes, these are days of triumph in my life.
But, this is the day my heart
Jumped for joy,
The day Jesus was true to His promise,
Removing all my fear, doubts and anxieties
And brought me to
Jaffa, Israel, to show me the brides.
Then I knew…then I understood…
“My Beloved speaks and says to me;
“Arise, My love, My beautiful one,
And come away,
For behold, the winter is past;
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth,
The time of singing has come,
The voice of the turtledove…
And the vines are in blossom;
They give forth fragrance.
Arise, My love, My beautiful one,
And come away.”
Song of Solomon 2:10-14 (ESV)
“But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession,
and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of Him everywhere.”
2 Corinthians 2:14 (ESV)
