I have always loved blossom – it reminds me of a wedding ( hence the bride and groom) Song of Solomon 1:14 talks about Jesus being like a bouquet of henna blossoms. Henna blossomed in late April/early May and was intently fragrant. It was grown as a hedgerow around the vineyards to protect the soil against wind erosion. These thorny branches protected vulnerable, valuable crops.
Like those crops, we are covered, protected and valued by our beloved Lord Jesus. We have nothing to fear.
