Come Sit With Me

Twenties-092713-Candles

Here, with Me, is a place for you.

I slowly sat down in the small sukkah and stared at the words in the half-lit glow of the yellow lamplight.  They pulled me in and held me, very safe, in a place where there was room, and warmth, and light, and protection.

A place prepared for you… I will hide you there, that you shall not be harmed…

I sat in the sukkah all that night, and ate, and drank, and prayed. But all the time I looked up, and saw, and found that place, reassuring.

It’s alright…  there is a place here. With Me.  A place just for you.

And then I was safe, held in Space, created just for me.

For I was not alone.
