Give It Today

Right There With You

Proverbs 3:26 (MSG)
Because God will be right there with you;  He'll keep you safe and sound.

We were leaving for our family vacation and had arrived at the airport with just enough time to run to the ticket counter and make our departure.  My husband and I were dodging in and out of the sea of people trying to maneuver ourselves to the attendant.  Finally, we got to the baggage check in area.  As we stood juggling our luggage and trying to dig out our itenerary, I looked behind me to make sure that the kids were with me.  There was the oldest child, but where was our little two year old!??
