Song of Solomon, first chapter, verse 14 ---

"My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi."
Engedi - This is the place where David was sheltered in the caves. Spurgeon says that all locations in Song of Solomon are out of the way places.
None of these places are "Jerusalem". In other words they are all temporary sojourning places. Perfect picture of the pilgrim state.
From my journals, Aug. 2, 1991.

Desert Pilgrim, So very good to hear from you again. Hope you folks are doing well.

I really like your analogy and thoughts from Song of Songs here. So important for us not only to remember, but to live by. So easy to be looking at the things that are passing, and lose our focus on the things that last and are enduring.

Thanks for sharing that.
