Mother defending her child during the bombing in the Middle East
Photo Source: Unknown
grumbling to my sis the other day about my irritations of the
day. Minor they were, but at the moment I felt like everything was
up-side-down. In her kindly sisterly fashion, Sister asked if she could send me a sad
photo from a news story she'd recently received; she thought it might
help me to put things in perspective. Oh yes, please, send it!
Oh my ... upon seeing this photo my focus and perspective immediately cleared right up. Gratitude returned. As well as the deep desire to pray for this woman and her child.
After seeing this poignant photo, I am also reminded of those ancients comforting words from the Book of Psalms: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty... He will cover you with his pinions and under his wings you will find refuge.
I'm saving this picture because I want it as a reminder...
~ To pray for these two and others in this region.
~ That our Heavenly Father longs to gather us close to Himself as a hen would gather her chicks beneath her wings when we're in the midst of our own 'terror' attacks (of whatever shape they take).
~ That my world is really very good ALL things considered.
