Now she must learn to love as she is loved by her king.
Her life has only begun.

As only the Weaver can, I AM orchestrates the unfolding of His Story like no other. Who else can tell the Ballad of the Grand Epic like He does, the Unchanging One Above All Time? Forward and backward across the ages, I AM’s Song of songs declares the same message, but only He can unveil the mystery and withhold in secrecy with such Mastery and Beauty that perfectly magnifies the Glory and Majesty that is His alone. The same chorus and the same refrain play with each new verse, but to those within the confines of time, in the way of I AM, the music is the same yet not, familiar yet new, nostalgic yet unknown, clear as crystal yet shrouded in mist. For as I AM called the princes of earth to be His Reflections, so has He woven the reflections of the melody of His Covenantal Oath in the Song of songs. And the next movement opened with the Second Age of the Exile—On another mountain, another altar, I AM inducted once more the princes of earth as representatives of His Divine Court.

The rain of the flood waters is over and gone. The long winter of sleep is past. Her aimless wandering is over, for though she still wanders, she is no longer lost. Her hopeless mourning is over, for though she still mourns, she is no longer in despair. From the wilderness, her husband will carry her to the vineyard he has prepared, a vineyard only for two. In the wilderness, she found her voice as her husband taught her how to sing his song. Now she must learn how to pursue the prince who relentlessly pursued her. Now she must learn how to fight as a warrior-bride. Now she must learn to love as she is loved by her king. Her life has only begun.
