Psalm 121

     I awoke this morning to a gray sky, which quite reflects my mood.  I'm home sick again today, snuggled under my fleece bear blanket with a small electric heater and box of Kleenex nearby.  Maybe in the midst of the sniffles the Lord is trying to tell me to slow down and take better care of my body.  I am thankful for this time of rest, though I am definitely ready to feel better. 
    As I was spending time with Dad this morning, He gave me Psalm 121.  How incredible it is that the Maker of heaven and earth watches over us without ceasing!  May these words be as encouraging to your heart as they were to mine. 

 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— 
   where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
   the Maker of heaven and earth.

 3 He will not let your foot slip—
   he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
   will neither slumber nor sleep.

 5 The LORD watches over you—
   the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
   nor the moon by night.

 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
   he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
   both now and forevermore
