For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
    from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 (ESV).

 At a time when least expected,
At a time when least deserved,
It comes and I feel protected;
Grace and mercy steadfastly served.
Awash in the presence of this moment,
Approaching bowed on bended knee;
Love and forgiveness encircle me.
It’s always when least expected,
And always when least deserved;
Prompts that I am protected with
Grace and mercy lovingly served.

undefined In the heat of a moment, or when I’m not thinking as I should, grace and mercy come to remind me, that I am not in this life alone. God is my sun and shield, and by His grace I am called to a higher place, His love. Have you experienced those times when His gentle grace has given you a moment to respond with gentleness?

I am a writer and counselor, who embraces joy and holds tight to hope. I live with my husband Ken, of 44 years, and he is the love of my life. I enjoy inspirational and devotional writing, home decor, gardening, and being in community. My husband and I are missionaries to children in Washington State, and love the privilege of being with them.

      1. It’s going well. Thanks for asking. I am trying to get over a cold now. I guess it’s the climate change from Florida that caused it. It is great to be here with my mom and other family. How are things with you?

      2. I pray His healing and peace cover you. I believe the prayer and being with loved ones will make short business of that cold. We are doing well. Just had our first Good News Club in a neighboring town on Tuesday, and it was great fun. Love and blessings to you and your family ♥


      3. Thank you Dawn. ♥ Good News Club® is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship. Trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parent’s permission. Each week there’s an exciting Bible story, songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games and crafts.

        Good News Club we share the Gospel with boys and girls, and establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.
