The children took their shoes off to walk in the stream... and a snake sat in the midst, unnoticed. Max was two inches from his head. They gathered around him and ushered him to a hole in the side of the bank.

God is good, all the time.
There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased form his works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall accordig to the same example of disobedience (unbelief). For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. -Hebrews 4:9-12
Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. - Philipians 4:4-6
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. -Isaiah 26:3I'd like to hide these in my heart.
