Safely Under His Wings

Last year around this time, I sold my very first Blue Bird Psalms Sign.

Thanks to Pinterest, that bird literally “flew” all over the web!  I started getting e-mails asking if I would make & send them, and eventually the Harbour Breeze Etsy shop started up to accommodate the requests.

I often read those request e-mails with tears in my eyes.

Ladies shared why they wanted the sign.  One woman was giving 3 to 3 dear friends who were undergoing chemo treatments,

And I sobbed when a lady wrote she was purchasing one for her Mother who had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

It’s not the amazing craftsmanship or awe-inspiring design that touches people’s hearts.  It’s the words.

“He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge. Psalm 91:4”

Just as those words have given me hope and comfort in times of need, I’ve discovered the far reaching impact these life giving words give others.  They offer hope, comfort, shelter, and safety in scary, sad circumstances.

As I was painting away the other day, an old, old song started rattling through my mind.

“Under His wings, I am safely abiding,

Tho the night deepens and tempests are wild;

Still I can trust Him, I know He will keep me,

He has redeemed me and I am His child.”

{Do you remember it, too?}

That long ago song inspired a little baby bird sign to be added to the collection.

It is now available, along with some of the original ones.  Canada Post tells me that you Americans can still get it before Christmas if it gets in the mail soon.  (Here’s hopin’!}

I just made a few more Christmas signs last night, too.

Many, many thanks to those of you who’ve purchased through my shop (and for your patience as you waited me to finish some more!).
