McKenna Says God Lives Here

For a period of time my grand-daughter and her siblings lived at the Ranch with Randy and I, and we have always had a very close relationship.  She loves to come and visit us.  She has a special feeling about being here, as do so many people.  Recently a female veteran who lived at the ranch along with her daughter made the following comment, "We shall see you soon ...We enjoyed being at the ranch, I felt like nothing could hurt me there."  That is a common line of thought by all who visit, but our grand-daughter expressed it best...

As Randy always says, it is a place to "stand down."  I am not sure why, but it has always been a place of God's favor.  My little grand-daughter McKenna said it best when she arrived for a visit.  She said, "Nana, do you know why I love coming to the ranch so much?" I told her no, and asked her why she loved it.  She said, "Because God lives here."  She will be going to second grade this year I believe.

Psalms 91
The one who lives under the protection of the Most High
dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
He Himself will deliver you from the hunter’s net,
from the destructive plague.
He will cover you with His feathers;
you will take refuge under His wings.
His faithfulness will be a protective shield.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
the arrow that flies by day,
the plague that stalks in darkness,
or the pestilence that ravages at noon.
Though a thousand fall at your side
and ten thousand at your right hand,
the pestilence will not reach you.
You will only see it with your eyes
and witness the punishment of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord—my refuge,
the Most High—your dwelling place,
10 no harm will come to you;
no plague will come near your tent.
11 For He will give His angels orders concerning you,
to protect you in all your ways.
12 They will support you with their hands
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the young lion and the serpent.
14 Because he is lovingly devoted to Me,
I will deliver him;
I will protect him because he knows My name.
15 When he calls out to Me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble.
I will rescue him and give him honor.
16 I will satisfy him with a long life
and show him My salvation.
