I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip – He who watches over you will not slumber; Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand: the sun will not harm you by day, or the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm – He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
My mom passed away yesterday and this, as one of my favorite sets of scripture, is so appropriate today.

He was also there with my mom, watching as she slept in her bed breathing her last.
