Arise (2)


Be inspired by this BEaUtiful artwork from the heART of artist Colleen Briggs.
My original devotional song “Song of the Beloved” was based on Song of Solomon. You can hear that here:

arise-2-lo-res Arise (2); 2016; 14″ x 17″; mixed media: ink, watercolor, acrylic. 

Song of Solomon 2:10-13

“My beloved responded and said to me,
‘Arise, my darling, my beautiful one,
And come along.
For behold, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers have already appeared in the land;
The time has arrived for pruning the vines,
And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.
The fig tree has ripened its figs,
And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.
Arise, my darling, my beautiful one,
And come along!’”

    Lovely poetry here. I have always loved the romantic theme of SOS. The painting makes it come alive in a special way. Double check on the YouTube video ‘cus its showing “not available”

    • Hi Liz! Yes, loved Colleen’s beautiful words here. Thanks for the heads up on the video link. I uploaded the video a different way — let me know if it works now 🙂
      Creative blessings, Jody
