Praise our God-Shield

Who has our backs,
our fronts, our heads,
our feet, our sides,
surrounding us like
that plastic bubble
we wanted to hide
all our kids in when
they were small.

Praise God our Bullet-
Proof Vest Who defends
the loving heart, our Iron
Apron Who keeps away
dangerous x-rays, our
Bomb Squad Who defuses
explosive anger or hurtful
words that cut through
sensitive spirits like laser.

Praise God our Savior
Whose Omniscient Eyes
see an unknown-to-us
purpose with our souls
the beloved high prize.
