The word “Beloved” was one that I kept bumping into in books, music and other sources. The most impacting source for the word came after waking from a nightmare and looking to my Bible for some comfort. In Deuteronomy 33:11, I found this verse:
“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him (her) all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.”
A few days after this experience, I had the word tattooed on the inside of my wrist as a reminder that I’m loved and cared for. On doing some further research on the word, “Beloved’, I found that at one point it also meant to be able to “see love” as well as be a recipient of it. Seeing love, receiving love and giving love are so important to all of us, I thought what better a reminder to myself and those around me.
For all the change in life it is important to remember that you are beloved! May this new year be filled with many opportunities to see, receive and give love.
