Psalm 42:1 in my own words

Psalm 42:1 As the deer longs for the water, so my soul longs for you, O God.

As I meditate on this scripture, I begin to think of the things I long for, the things that make my heart ache if I go too long without them.  I start to make a list. 

As a grandma longs for the embrace of a grandchild…
A running hug 

As the city dweller longs for a place so she can see the earth meet the sky...IMG_4349

As a weary-caregiver longs for the Florida beaches the last two weeks of March...

As one longs for the faces of friends who move away...

As a bride, two days before her wedding, longs for the face of her groom whom she has not seen for four months...IMG_8307

As a mother longs for and rejoices to be in the presence of her grown sons . . .

And their families...

It is my heart's desire to
long after you, O God.
And so I pray,
“Draw me close to you.”
