It got pretty cold here last night – at least by South Florida standards. Somewhere in the low 40’s. And because I’m somewhat of an anomaly here and I LIVE for these kinds of nights, I slept with my windows open. Seemed like a good idea at the time. This morning when the alarm went off, I realized just how chilly it had become. So I reached down and pulled up the comforter (something I cannot do very often) and snuggled down deep. It was just the right combination of perfectly worn and softened cotton sheets and weighty comforter.
I didn’t intend for it to become a spiritual moment, but God used those few extra minutes in that delightful state to remind me how He loves to wrap me up like that. Verses came to mind about how He’s like a mother bird who spreads her wings over the nest to cover and protect her young, and how God is the perfect Comforter. Soon we’ll be back into the tropical weather here, but I’m grateful for cold mornings, a warm bed and reminders of God’s loving cover over me.
He shall cover you with His feathers and under His wings you shall take refuge. Psalm 91:4 NKJV
As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you. Isaiah 66:13 NKJV
