Some years ago, when my teenage son, Michael, owned a dirt bike, we had a most remarkable evidence of God's presence and protection.

Leading up to this experience, I had been reading the Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly, and the following words from Deuteronomy 33:12 quite literally stopped me in my tracks: "The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders." It was as if this statement grabbed hold of me and would not let go. I could read no farther. It finally came to me to copy it onto index cards, giving one to each of my three children and placing one before me over the kitchen sink, where I would see it most.

During that day and all of the next, I felt like I was cast in the armor of those words. That evening, as I was cooking supper, Michael walked in. I knew he had been riding his dirt bike with a friend that afternoon. He opened his mouth to talk to me but no words came out. Turning off the stove, I brought him into the family room, where we sat down. He then explained what had happened.
