This verse reminds me of St. Patrick's Breastplate, which reads:
Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,

Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
The photo, though taken in Montana, reminds me of Ireland. It is also a reminder that the sun will rise, the seasons will change, and God's love for us is everlasting.
Today, may we reflect on Christ's steadfast love for us, shielding us with peace and love.
