“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 Just as mama eagles guard and protect their young under their wings, in this verse Jesus Christ is the One who covers us with His feathers, and there we will find refuge.

Art For Sale

This week, work was very stressful, and frustrating. A bang-your-head-against-a-wall kind week. Although, it wasn't as bad as the guy who accidentally sent out a Nuclear attack warning to all of Hawaii.
