He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber. (Psalm 121:3)
Several four- to five-year-olds clustered around a LEGO table, oblivious to the worship band on the screen in the family area of our church. A little girl leaned forward to grab one of the trains. She slipped and ended up under the table with the chair on top of her. Her eyes grew wide. But before a cry escaped her lips, her father covered the length of the room and swept her into his arms. He held her in one arm while he righted the chair. Then he swung her to him, looked her up and down, and smiled. Turning her away from him, he sat her in the chair. Within seconds she was engrossed with the LEGO toys. He drew up a chair a little way behind her and sat there for the rest of the service.
