"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart" (Psalm 91:4).
It was just one of those days.
Frustration led to tears.
Head cupped in my hands.
Sitting on the kitchen floor.
She asks, "Mom, are you ok? Does your head hurt?"
"I'll be ok."
She gently reaches towards me and wraps her arms around me as if she'll never let go.
One tear slowly falls down her cheek.
Tears stream down my cheeks.
"Nicole, God has given you such a big heart. You have such a God given ability to just love others."
I manage a smile.
She smiles too, and then goes back to playing on the computer (after she gives me another hug, of course).
God wraps His loving arms around me too, like a hen wrapping her wings and covering her chicks with her feathers.
Lord, forgive me for failing so often to remember that You are my refuge, my strength and that You will always protect me and wrap your loving arms around me.
