One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings" 
(Psalm 61:4).
One of their highlights was building shelters known as "quinzees".

I am so thankful for the comfort of knowing God is my shelter.  When I put my trust in Him, I am "taking refuge in the shelter of His wings".  He is my comfort, my strength, and refuge.  Similar to a baby bird taking shelter under its mother's wings, God is our shelter and He wraps His loving arms around us.  Through all the storms that we face, He is our shelter.  In all of our circumstances, in Him we can find comfort and refuge.  He loves us and will never leave us.

Continuing to give thanks...
