Reading: Song of Songs 1-4; Psalm 11
Father, in you I take refuge. Not in my savings, not in my strength, not in the security of my home. For you are in your holy temple. Your throne is in heaven. You are righteous, and you love those who are righteous through the blood of your Son. You pursued me over and over again, until finally you found me. Now you have set me at your banqueting table, and your banner over me is love. Each day I awake when the day breathes and the shadows flee to spend time in your embrace, enjoying the embrace of my Father.
