“Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down in his shade with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.” (Song of Solomon 2:3 NKJV)
A quiet moment with Jesus. Taking time to sit in His shade. Smell the grass. Watch the light-and-leaf show. Bite into His sweet promises. Feel the trickle of juice. Hear whispers of His Spirit.
Better than a chocolate snatched in haste. Better than java slurped on the run.
No one listens like Jesus, no one knows our yearnings or cares quite like Him.
Worth stopping the clock, getting out of the car, hiking into the woods to experience.
