For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
I like the songs by Sara Groves. Listening to one tonight reminded me of a long ago, hot summer day, when my older cousin and sister took me on their country walks. It was just thrilling to be asked to go along, even thrilling just to be noticed in the first place! My cousin made the day, however, when we stopped by a creek to get a drink. When he saw that I was too small to reach the clear, flowing water, he reached down and scooped up water in his hands for me to drink. I did drink, too, from his cupped hands, until my thirst was quenched. Some years later my cousin and his brother died in a car accident. I glad he left me with a picture of God's grace.
