To my surprise, Molly gave the bag to me once again several days later.
Same ratty bag. Same stuff inside. I felt forgiven. And trusted. And loved. And a little more comfortable wearing the title of Father.
Over several months the bag went with me from time to time. It was never clear to me why I did or did not get it on a given day. I began to think of it as the Daddy Prize and tried to be good the night before so I might be given it the next morning. In time Molly turned her attention to other things … found other treasures … lost interest in the game … grew up. I was left holding the bag. She gave it to me one morning and never asked for its return. And so I have it still …. So the worn paper sack is there in the box.
Such as I have, give I to thee. We may not know how precious they were until time shares that reality with us. He gives His name, His forgiveness, His provision of every need. Are you running so fast that the wonders of His love, those treasures are being swept off the desk of your life? When reading the Song of Solomon, take off the shoes from the natural man, for the ground on which you stand is spiritual ground. In our lost estate we belonged to the world. Bless God for redemption through the Blood!
He is Altogether Lovely - discovering Christ in the Song of Solomon
The verses of this section have to do with fragrance and beauty for here we have spices with a strong and very sweet aroma as well as beautiful camphire which was the henna flowers so abundant in Palestine. The spikenard was taken from its fibrous root. Spikenard imported from India came in carefully sealed alabaster jars.
Only when wealthy people had special guests would they break the seal of a costly jar to anoint their friends. What an act of devotion if was for Mary when she broke the alabaster box and poured it on His head Mk. It is also mentioned in the New Testament. Wise men brought it as a gift to Jesus at His birth Mat. Our Lord, after His death was embalmed with myrrh John Myrrh was a fragrant gum that exuded from Arabian trees. The tree is hacked, cut and beaten. Myrrh then exudes from the wounds!wereliro.tk
He is altogether lovely! (William Dyer, "Christ's Famous Titles")
It was used as a composition with anointing oil Ex. Sometimes it was used as a purifying cosmetic Esther These flowers grew from a plant common in Palestine. The flowers were highly scented and yellow or white in color. Would you expect a man with wives and concubines to write a marriage manual? Surely plain teaching would be better. Look at Gen 2 Ephesians 5 1 Peter 3 and so on!

AS I alluded to in the introduction , I believe that it is more this is a picture of Christ and his church. It reveals more than meets the eye! Mystery is one in bible speaks of One promised Messiah. It is a special book. Song of songs is a wonderful book. We believe the whole bible is inspired of God.
It is Gods word to men. It has been precious to many Christians through out the ages. Note The qs what is thy beloved Whither is Thy beloved gone? Who is this cometh up from the wilderness leaning upon her beloved ? What is Christ compared to other gods and other religions? Note the Personal aspect 3rd person singular.
