Where can I go from your spirit?
Or where can I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there;
if I make the grave my bed, you are there also.
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand will lead me,
and your right hand will hold me fast. (Psalm 139:6-9)
child lost in chaos
reaches out in terror
to find safety in her mother’s hand
