Psalm 84

Pentecost +12 – Year B

Psalm 84

Verse 2 - Lovely, Heb "yedidot," is not just "beautiful" but "beloved." There is almost a mystical quality in the intensity of the psalmist's desire (with his entire being, v.3) to be in God's presence. [Note from The Jewish Study Bible]

On your pilgrimage to the center of your faith/being, what is a beloved person, moment, event, etc. that would be a marker of what you are aiming the rest of your life toward re-membering again and again in each new moment?

To find this kind of loveliness triggers a trust that such is a worthy intention to which we might put our longing, our yearning, from this time forward.
