There’s a verse in the lectionary psalm for today that stopped me in my reading and touched me in a deep place. Take a breath and see what you think.

I will give my eyes no sleep. my eyelids no rest, till I find a home for the Lord…(PS 132)

Immediately upon reading that line, I saw myself carrying soft, beautiful bedding to a room suffused with light. With a heart bursting full of love, I entered the room and saw that God was already there, waiting for me to make the bed. The image was brief but filled me with longing. And that is gift enough for today.
