A few weeks ago I was driving to work at the food pantry our church. I have to pass the local elementary school to get there and it is at the same time that kids are going to school.
This particular day there was some road construction going on a block away from the school so the sidewalk and street was blocked by some heavy machinery. And I noticed a dad with his daughter on his back. He carried her that way out into the busy street around the obstruction so that he knew she would be safe.
And I was struck by how much he loved his daughter. He galloped around so she would laugh.
And then I was struck that this is how God protects and loves me! He holds onto me, carries me around dangers that I am not even aware of and even gallops around just to hear me laugh!
