Safe and sound

Many years ago, I had a job that required traveling and living in one place temporarily for approximately six months. I was able to locate a small RV in a campground, on the Missouri River, where I could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and at the same time be near work. One night, I was taking meat scraps out to the dumpster, and a timber wolf came out of nowhere. I was thinking my life was over, I was dead meat, all sorts of horrible thoughts. 

As I stood there, I declared inwardly that this was a harmonious place and that no harm could come to God’s child. As the timber wolf edged closer and closer, I stood frozen, just knowing that I was surrounded by God’s love, and untouchable to anything but divine Love.

Meanwhile, a stray dog appeared out of nowhere and ran at the wolf broadside, causing the wolf to fall, and allowing me time to throw the scraps of meat and run home. I was protected, knowing that I could have nothing but Love around me.
