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