Hedge of Protection

So today I was working while Ang spent the day with Bronson. He is doing so much better... we keep forgetting that he is still in the NICU. Today while I was working my brother had Joel Osteen playing on podcast. he was speaking about God's hedge of protection upon our lives.

He spoke of Yellowstone National Park. A few years back there was a fire that ripped through the park. As workers made their way through the destruction, one stumbled upon a bird. What caught his eye was how the small bird was laying... It's wings spread out, as if to pose for a picture. The worker assumed the bird ended up in a petrified state with fire and ash all around it.

Still interested, the worker simply poked the bird and to his surprise three baby chicks came out from underneath. The bird could have flown away... she would have saved herself but instead choose to spread her wings over her babies, surrendering her own life in the process.

That's how Ang and I feel. That through everything God has us under His protection.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
      He will shelter you with his wings.
      His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

         - Psalm 91.4
Through our pain... we are still blessed... 
Bronson is growing stronger every day... I know God has good things in store.
