Photo Friday: Come Into His Garden

Sea of Galilee from Mount of Beatitudes, Israel


“Awake, north wind,
and come, south wind!
Blow on my garden,
that its fragrance may spread everywhere.
Let my beloved come into his garden”
(Song of Songs 4:16)

This week, as the world celebrates worldly love, the Jewish people celebrated Tu B’Shvat, the New Year for Trees, a celebration of God’s natural creation. And today, let us look to the lovely words of Solomon, which beautifully describe God’s Holy Land, which here is a view of the Sea of Galilee from the Mt. of Beatitudes. Shabbat shalom, friends.
