One of my favourite writers visited my blog today so I scurried over to her site to return the favour. I've added Jan Ackerson to my blog roll so be sure to visit her at Glory Be. Jan's a master of the pen (or keyboard) and I know you'll enjoy what she has to say.

I started reading Song of Songs this morning. I'm not much into romance but there are so many delightful word pictures that remind me of how much God cares for me. One of those is this one from chapter 1, verses 6, which says: "His left arm is under my head and his right arm embraces me." And since a picture is worth a thousand words, or so they say, I thought between the verses and the picture that follows, you'll get the message, loud and clear.

God loves you.

I picture a baby rather than a bride, a dependent child held securely, who has complete trust in those arms to shelter, defend and embrace for all time.

That's love—that's God's love embracing me.


  1. Oooh - love this picture (the word picture AND the "picture picture"). Beautiful reminder, Lynda!

  2. That's a perfect picture for the verse.
