So I’m going to go with the first things that pop into my head: First, two songs.
The shadow of your smile when you are gone.. . . .
Me and my shadow, walking down the avenue . . . .
Then, so many Bible verses I won’t list them all, but here is one of my favorites:
Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings. . .
Which takes me to a story I heard as a child to illustrate the protection afforded to us by being under His wing:
There was a farmer whose barn burned to the ground. After the fire was out and things had cooled down, he walked through the ash and the mess to see if anything at all had survived. He came across the carcass of a hen, and was sick to think of how she had died. He pushed her remains aside with his booted foot, and out from under her wings, several little chicks came scurrying. The hen had given her life to save her chicks, protecting them under her wings.
What a place of refuge we can find under the wings of the God Who created us, loved us, and gave Himself for us. Psalm 91:4.
