Yesterday’s journal entry: Yuri is joining me in the gazebo. . . we will see how that works. “Faithful Lord, let me feel your ever lasting arms beneath me today” ~~Elizabeth Sherrill
Elizabeth had told about her father holding her up at age two. . . standing on his hands as he reached upward. She likened that to standing on the Lord’s hands. . . . I could see that picture. And I felt having His loving arms around me, protecting me today from all evil—the way I felt when Grandpa Robert or Great Grandpa Arthur Brown when they hugged me in a greeting on our Sunday afternoon/evening visits. I felt safe and happy! Years later I felt that same love and so much MORE with Rich. Those strong, loving arms have caused me to be able to stand strong, trusting, and knowing God is with me always. . . . and even though they are no longer here. . . I still find comfort, feeling their strength in my heart and memories!
Deuteronomy 33:27 —
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and she shall thrust out the enemy from thee; and shall say destroy them.”
