"You're my honey," "I love you honey," and just the word "honey" have always been used to express sweet endearment for someone held in affection. Few other words are used to replace it because its source comes from a highly-esteemed food and medicine used since ancient times. Centuries ago it was called the "Nectar of the Gods" for its pleasing taste, rich color, and miraculous health and beauty benefits. Many ancient and holy books speak of it. In Exodus, Moses will deliver the Israelites out of bondage to a land flowing with milk and honey, as well as the house of Israel called the name of Manna and the taste of it like wafers made with honey. Isaiah, when prophesizing about the coming of Christ, says butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. Is it any wonder then that honey, as ever, is a highly sought after prize for which we can thank the industrious honey bee.
