Hanging gardens of Babylon

Being a lover of gardening myself, I had hoped that the story of the hanging gardens of Babylon would have brought with it great romantic notions. Strangely though it is precisely the romantic nature of the tale that leaves one asking questions.

Although the legendary hanging gardens were declared an Ancient Wonder, their location has never been definitely established. They were traditionally believed to be built in Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar, but more recent writings and discoveries are leading to the belief that they were actually built in Nineveh by the Assyrian king Sennacherib.

In either tale though the gardens were believed to have been built for a Queen pinning for the beauties of her home land. I believe that today there is another Queen longing for her homeland. The bride of Christ labours as we long to be taken to our spiritual garden of rest. Our garden being heaven, the home of our eternal soul.

Oh Lord, hear the cry of your bride!
