Double Snuggle

by Mark Weinrich

When my grandson
climbs into my lap 
and snuggles next to me
we share an unbelievable
peace. For the comfort he
receives is magnified
as I remember my need.
I close my eyes 
and crawl up onto 
the Lord’s lap. 
And as I unburden
and quiet my soul
I listen to the Lord’s heart 
for both of us.

Note: David encourages us
in Psalm 131:2 to crawl onto
the Lord’s lap like a child
resting against its mother.
