in the crook of his arm

what you can't see is that mijo is lying
on his back in the crook of my arm

One of the essential paradoxes of Advent: that while we wait for God, we are with God all along.

~ Michelle Blake ~
from her novel, The Tentmaker

Surely, there is a metaphor in here somewhere.

Something like...

We can't see who is holding us...or even that anyone is. Yet, God has us in the crook of His arm--always.

Sometimes, like now, it's really hard to hold firm to that faith. I'd like a little nudge, or tickel, from time to time. Then maybe i'd be able to purr.
