Firmly Established

I don’t have the need or opportunity to go to many children’s playgrounds.

Growing up in the country, the entire Mycenae neighborhood was my playground. I did enjoy recess on the playground of Fayetteville elementary school. The swings were my favorite but I also spent time on tall and short slides, sets of monkey bars, merry-go-round, using a tetherball and on the teeter-totter. There were far fewer safety regulations in my childhood days.

I remember the fun of sitting on the high end of the wooden teeter-totter board. I got quite a jolt after descending quickly to the ground!

“Bless the Lord, O my soul!
O Lord my God, You are very great;
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak,
Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.

He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters;
He makes the clouds His chariot;
He walks upon the wings of the wind;
He makes the winds His messengers,
Flaming fire His ministers.

He established the earth upon its foundations,
So that it will not ‘totter’ [emphasis mine] forever and ever (Psalm 104:1-6 NASB).”

I’m an earth dweller; providentially, God is keeping me from the dangerous highs and lows of a teeter-totter ride.
