I love Psalm 91 and I call on it to start the day. And I repeatedly say it throughout my day, it is my 911.

This is a special time of the year. For me, it is really an exalted time. I get to celebrate my birthday but I also get to give thanks for having been birthed on the planet at such a propitious time. As harrowing as conditions around the world are, I wouldn't want to miss this ride for the world.

Be in the world but not captured by the darkness and hate that is of this world. The world around us represented by the institutions of war, education, medicine, banking seek to enslave us. Putting our faith and trust in our government or political machine is putting our feet on shaky ground.
