day no. 12,995: walls provide peace

Song of Solomon 8:8-10

8Our sister is young;
she has no breasts.
What will we do for our sister
on the day she is spoken for?
9If she is a wall,
we will build a silver parapet on it.
If she is a door,
we will enclose it with cedar planks.
10I am a wall
and my breasts like towers.
So in his eyes I have become
like one who finds peace.
Guard your head and heart against attack.
Be a wall, not a door.
Walls protect precious things and provide appropriate, yet guarded points of entry.
Doors swing both directions and without discretion allow entry and exit.
People will find peace in observing your head and heart protected by discretion and prudence.
