Wonderful Saturday, it stopped raining, that is an awesome blessing to me, we live in low lands and when it rains for days on end we flood, never in the home but at times was right to the edge..God is my refuge and my wonderful hiding place, I go to him and pray and he consoles me.

(Psalm 91:1 & 2 ) "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."
" I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."
When I was a child I had a special shelter, a secret
place where I would take my books, my doll and maybe
an apple to munch on.

I was raised in a little Country town in Michigan, we lived on a dirt road, with a huge Oak tree across the street, I loved that tree; and would climb it and sit in the cradle of its limbs, I could see for a mile up the road, and felt really safe in this big Oak. I still reminisce about those wonderful times in the innocence of my youth.

Today I have a special hiding place and it is with my
Lord and Saviour. I know when times get rough and
scary that I can slip into my special place with God
and he will comfort and encourage me.

How precious to know that no matter what we are going
though in this life... that Jesus will never leave nor
forsake us. We can rest in the strength and love of His
wonderful arms. We can tell Him all the things that we
are sometimes afraid to say to others.

Father, You are our hiding place. No matter what goes
on around us with the turmoil of this earth today, we
can slip into Your loving and caring arms. Thank You
precious LORD. Amen.
