TAV

Tav, the final letter of the Hebrew alefbeit (alphabet).

The picture behind tav is the sign or seal of a covenant. It was often used as a mark in the same sense as our signature is today, especially of those who could not read or write (similar to the practice of signing an "x" on a contract).

Conceptually, tav is a wounding, as the sealing of a covenant required the wounding of the sacrifice, whose blood sealed the covenant.

 

Jesus is the reason for the season

My Lover

Over The Mountains
Over the Sea
Here You come running my Lover to me


When I feel the cold of winter
And this cloak of sadness, I need You
All the evil things that shake me
All the words that break me, I need You

Do not hide me from Your presence
Pull me from Your shadows, I need You
Beauty wrap Your arms around me
Sing Your song of kindness I need You
All through the valleys
Through the dark of night
Here You come running to hold me till it's light

I'll come running...back to You
