All Around is an upbeat song inspired by Psalm 23.
The line 'only goodness and kindness pursue me' was jumping out at me.
Where did it come from?
All Around came from a morning time when I was reading Psalm 23. This chapter has long held a special spot in my heart, possibly stemming back to a difficult season in our family's life when my dad was really sick, so it was no surprise when God started talking to me again, reminding me of His always present love and kindness.

KiDs Need to Know
KiDs need to know that God is personal and that He is love. He is not just capable of love, He IS love and cannot be otherwise. Love is in every aspect that flows from Him. Jesus is our amazing personal Lord, displaying Himself to us even when all of hell is watching and waiting for opportunities to destroy. When we feel the impact of trouble, God is always present, defending, protecting and comforting us as we keep holding on to His heart & ways.
Children follow those they look up to.
Let's give them Jesus through our life's example.
May our personal shepherd and companion emulate through everything we say or do. May we be people who give KiDs something great to follow!
