You peek over the brim. A smile spreads. Eyes delight. I tiptoe near, playing the game. Your belly laugh slips through the blanket. Rolls of chub pump up and down. Glee resounds. You reach and stretch, desperate for skin to touch skin, for whispered songs, and arms of love.
I sing “Amazing Grace” to amazing grace. I delight in you and in how my love quiets you. Joy spills over my heart’s brim as I sing songs of love to my love.
Much like how the Father rejoices over me, I rejoice over you. He delights in us and quiets us with His love.
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
ZEPHANIAH 3:17 ESV
