When I was a teenager, my family vacationed in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I vividly remember sitting on top of a huge sand dune at dusk to see the view of the shoreline. I remember the deep loneliness I felt, wanting to share the experience with a forever-partner who would love me always no matter what.

Deepening in His Love
A Preface

My in-depth study of the Song of Songs began in 2016 when my husband and I listened to Rabbi K.A. Schneider’s DVD series Song of Songs – Journeying into Divine Love. As we listened over a period of weeks, I read Jill Shannon’s book Unveiling the Song of Songs and aligned her chapters with the DVD series. Later a dear friend and customer from Oregon, Lois Jean, who mentored many young women until she went home to be with her Bridegroom, introduced me to other books on the Song of Songs.

The purpose of this study is to ground ourselves in God’s love. When we are fully convinced of His love by way of His personal revelation to us, we will stand in joy and hope as the darkness increases.

The theme of The Song of Songs is – Our Bridegroom, Yeshua, is intensely aware of His Bride at all times. All His actions lead us into deeper intimacy with Himself until we are completely consumed by Him. We can find instruction, comfort, healing and joy in the Bride’s journey.

Welcome to Shale Fragments, a collection of writings and art for individual and group use!

Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.

As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
