As usual, Jan Karon’s latest book, (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, New York) hits the spot. It’s a delightful take about the quirky characters in the small town of Mitford. They all have their own troubles but in spite of that, they are sympathetic, considerate and encouraging to one another.
But then there is that title, based on a letter from Cynthia to her Dear Tim: Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good.
Isn’t that what we all want?
Most of us will never live a Mitford kind of life, but we all can be somewhere safe, with somebody good.
Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge. (Psalm 16:1, NIV)
“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me (John 10:14, NIV)
God is our ‘somebody safe–our somebody good.’ Just read his letters, now bound together in the Bible, and see for your self.
Prayer – Thank you, God, for being our eternal ‘somebody safe’ and ‘somebody good.’ Amen
