Canopy of Protection

Lush canopy of green leaves shelter the life beneath and amidst

Mystery, beauty, relief from heat, provider of shade, web of moisture

Heavens above, trees and green, ground

Christ, heaven, redemption, souls

Under the canopy of His protection

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.” -Psalm 91:14-16

“Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.” – Psalm 57:1

Wide Open

1086

Honesty can scare because there is no hiding

Words and feelings bare and exposed

Wide open

Honesty can heal if honesty is kind

Words and feelings showing care and concern

Wide open

Honesty is found in the face of Love

The One who died for us and all our words and feelings

Arms wide open

Mercy wide open

Heaven wide open
