Because Sometimes I Need Sleep

I love the process of interpretation, but there are days when I am also glad that Scripture can stand on its own.  We can read it, and read it again, and simply let it sink in deeply.  Today is like that.  After a very early, stressful morning, followed by a six hour nap wrapped up in my Rainbow Brite blanket from 1983 (I don't really know if it's even called a nap at that point, but I needed a word for it... I also don't know if you need details about my blanket, but I desperately needed a picture to add to this post on my FB page, and I have long since lost the ability to think clearly or get super creative), followed by coffee at 3:30 in the afternoon, this is just what I needed... to feel safe:

Psalm 121, "I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.  The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.  The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore" (NIV).
