“For lo, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, And the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.” Song of Solomon 2:11-12 NKJV
“This, too, shall pass” is a statement often quoted,
which lines up with the words of our Lord, so devoted,
to our well-being through any winter-like season
or storms of life, which seem to arise without reason.
The wintry blast shall pass, so keep listening to hear
for the sound of the turtledove…there’s nothing to fear.
P. A. Oltrogge
