OK… there are a few words there that I had to make up.. but you get the point!
I love this picture – it (to me) is a metaphor of the kind of guy I want to be in my world – sheltering those around me and being someone that they look up to! That’s me up there – the big one – with Christine on the Right, Emily on the left, and I can’t wait to find out about the tiny wee one in the front… but he looks really cute and like he wants to take on the world with Daddy’s help!
Most of all – I just wanna be a FUN GUY!!! HAHAHAHAHA… (it had to come sooner or later!!!)
Maybe I got my interpretation all wrong though… Maybe God’s the big one sheltering ME, Christine and Emily…
Psalm 911 Those who live in the shelter of the Most Highwill find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.2 This I declare of the Lord:He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;he is my God, and I am trusting him.3 For he will rescue you from every trapand protect you from the fatal plague.4 He will shield you with his wings.He will shelter you with his feathers.His faithful promises are your armor and protection.5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,nor fear the dangers of the day,6 nor dread the plague that stalks in darkness,nor the disaster that strikes at midday.7 Though a thousand fall at your side,though ten thousand are dying around you,these evils will not touch you.8 But you will see it with your eyes;you will see how the wicked are punished.9 If you make the Lord your refuge,if you make the Most High your shelter,10 no evil will conquer you;no plague will come near your dwelling.11 For he orders his angelsto protect you wherever you go.12 They will hold you with their handsto keep you from striking your foot on a stone.13 You will trample down lions and poisonous snakes;you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.I will protect those who trust in my name.15 When they call on me, I will answer;I will be with them in trouble.I will rescue them and honor them.16 I will satisfy them with a long lifeand give them my salvation.
