the imagery

I love the imagery of this verse. The NIV states “rest between his shoulders”. I think of when my daughters were young and they had piggy back rides. The Message translates the same verse “within whom God is at home”. That is a cool image, too – God hanging out at/in my house.

“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.”

“God’s beloved; God’s permanent residence. Encircled by God all day long, within whom God is at home.”

"Telling the next generation" is my passion whether it is life stories, Bible stories, my 9/11 story, manners, ballet or tap terminology. I teach whenever I have opportunity and now I am expressing that passion through writing.
