So let's take a look at that tenth day together...
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Ten lords a-leaping,
Then we have the lame man who is healed in the 3rd chapter of Acts,
“And with a leap, he stood upright and began to walk; and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.”
It is one that our True Love would love to see written into the story of our life.
Certainly He has brought blessing to us that merits a few leaps!
I wonder if our True Love uses the number ten to signify completeness.
His Law was a set of Ten Commandments and they were all the rules needed to live right.
So in this case could it be that the leaping is due to how completely He has met us and our needs?
Works for me!
"As for God, His way is blameless; the Word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him, For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God, the God who girds me with strength, and makes my way blameless? He makes my feet like hinds' feet, and sets me upon my high places. He trains my hands for battle, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, and Your right hand upholds me; and Your gentleness makes me great. You do enlarge my steps under me, and my feet have not slipped."
“Listen! My beloved! Behold he is coming, climbing on the mountains, leaping on the hills!” Song of Solomon 2:8
