~Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves’ eyes~
Every spring, the consciousness of her gentle cooing begins to speak of the beauty of the season. After a long winter, her song begins shortly after the daffodils break through the earth, heralding the beginning of new life.
This year was no different. Her soft voice speaks to my heart as does the gentle Dove of God, the precious Holy Spirit. Once more, her cooing slowly penetrated into my consciousness as we began experiencing a glorious flower-scented spring.
One day, I noticed her voice quite near; in the walnut tree that shades my bedroom. Within a few more days I heard her fluttering, with song-like wings, across my deck. Back and forth she fluttered for days ~the dove~ appeared to experience ~no rest for her feet~.
And then…God spoke. He assured me that He had caused this reminder from His creation. He tenderly shared that, I had no rest in my heart. As the dove fluttered back and forth, the gentle Dove of God was fluttering over me; fretful at the sorrow in my heart…
The aching heart of one, whose soul has been broken, battered, bruised….
The dove stopped fluttering across my deck the other day. Once again, I only heard her gentle cooing.
And then…God spoke again….reassuring, comforting, holding me close to His breast. The fluttering of His precious Spirit will soon stop fluttering over my broken heart as His tender touch begins to bring His healing touch to me once more.
1. The dove is quite shy, however, I saw her up close and her eyes are truly beautiful.
2. I have heard a dove does not have a gallbladder. Gallbladders hold bile which is bitter. It is interesting to me that The Blessed Holy Spirit is referred to as The Dove. Hence the Holy Spirit holds no bitterness. His very essence is sweet...
