Positioned gracefully across the Book of Psalms is a string of seventy-one pearls, lovely beads of wisdom followed by the admonition SELAH which means, “Pause, think on these things, meditate.”
Psalm 3:4 “To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. Selah.”
I cry out and you, my Father, answer.
It’s always the same. I cry. You listen.
You are always there for me . . . with gifts.
I ask, and you give wisdom.
I call, and you show me great things I know nothing about.
Why are you so good to me? You know I have no means of paying you back. Why do you care so much?
“Child, I am your Father. You are my daughter.”
Father, this is your daughter calling (collect, as usual)
to tell you how much I love you,
and to thank you for always being there.
