U is for....

Psalm 17:8  Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings 
When I think of this scripture, it makes me think of the umbrella for some reason.  When it is raining and the elements are coming down on us, we are safe and dry underneath the umbrella.  But, when we step outside the protection of the umbrella, we get wet.  Which is uncomfortable.  When we stay under our Heavenly Fathers wings, we are safe.  But when we try to do things on our own and go outside that protection, things get a bit uncomfortable.  I need to choose to say under His protection more.  Have a wonderful Sunday!

Oh, does that remind me of my youngest son...he was so sensitive to words that all I had to do was speak to him or draw him a picture and he would be corrected. One such incident with him, I drew a picture of an umbrella and used the exact same analogy that you did. I love the thought of Father's protection. Mmmmm, so comforting.

Thanks for sharing, Shann, have a wonderfully blessed day!
