I'm thrilled that in doing my Bible study tonight, I have a few things to share. I was getting a little down because this weeks Bible study by Beth Moore, "Jesus the One and Only" was a little harder for me to take in and process. However, it might have been because I tried a few times to sit in the living room while the kids were still up reading and understanding what I was reading with the lovely sounds of 4 year old twins and their older (9yr old) sister crying and fussing because they want so much to play with her but she's just not feeling the same all the time. The other 3 are peacefully doing what a pre teen & 2 teenager do best....socializing thru text or computer quietly :0) . Yes, I will admit the three younger ones are somewhat like their momma & the 2 boys are somewhat like their dad.....Heidi....is a bit like both of Jon and me although she's our exchange student and came from another mother & father and country :0)! Tonight in my Bible Study it started with a Bible Verse from Luke 13:34 "O, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!" This is one of those verses where I need no noise in the house to understand so I waited until bedtime to finish tonight's study and I asked Jon for help! Of course it only took me reading it to him one time for him to explain it to me. It lead me to read Psalm 91. Where I found comfort once again :0) !
 Psalm 91: 1-4 1: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadows of the Almighty. 2: I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." 3: Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4: He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. (skip to) 14: "Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15: He will call upon me, and I will answer Him; I will be with him and honor him. 16: With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
 Beth Moore ends it with a neat way to start your morning and I'm going to try it!
 "I presently jump out of bed with one primary plan of attack for the day: ducking under the sheltering wing of the Most High so the enemy will have to get through Him to get to me."
 We are so protected if we can just open up to his will, not ours. Stand in the shadows of the cross because the judgment that we should have received, Christ received instead
