Under His Protection - Psalm 91

Hiking the South Kiabab trail in the Grand Canyon can be an inspiring experience! Hiking the canyon with children can be a challenge! Recently, I day hiked the Grand Canyon with a family of children and as we completed the hike back to the south rim it began to hail. We all immediately huddled under a large tree to keep from getting hurt by the pelting hail. Seconds later the father of the children pulled out an emergency blanket from his daypack and the adults in the group held each corner of the blanket to protect the children from the downpour of hail. The moment reminded me of the 91st Psalm. A psalm of protection! "I will say to the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God in Him will I trust. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge." (vs. 2,4)
