The LORD will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.
    —Psalm 121:7-8 (NIV)
    With Thee, ’tis one to behold and to pity. Accordingly, Thy mercy followeth every man so long as he liveth, whithersoever he goeth, even as Thy glance never quitteth any.

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I am safe in Your hands.
