Dark But Lovely

By Barbie   /     Apr 07, 2011  /     5 Minutes for Faith  /  

I am over at 5 Minutes for Faith today talking about the Song of Solomon.  Here’s a little preview:

I love reading the Song of Solomon in the Bible.  This book has two interpretations.  One interpretation is that of a natural love between King Solomon and his bride, the Shulamite maiden.  It emphasizes biblical principles that honor the beauty of love within marriage.  The other interpretation is symbolic of the spiritual truths in our relationship with Jesus behind the natural love story.  I remember how embarrassed I used to feel when reading this book because I often felt as if I were imposing on the love between this man and woman.

I hope that you will visit me over at 5 Minutes for Faith to read the rest of my post.  Oh, and leave me a comment here or there letting me know you stopped by!
