A St. Abraham Illumination & Remembering that God is Our Shield

Biblical Illumination From the Recycled Cottage
Abraham is one of those saints where it it can be overwhelming to to explain his life - or to even pick out one single attribute to elaborate on.  So many verses in the Bible pertain to him!  But, below, is a really good one to highlight (and so cleverly highlighted-decorated with a shield in this image!).  Genesis 15:1 presents God's assurance to Abraham ... that He was his shield.  This promise came as Abraham fretted about dying childless ... after he had been told that he would become a father to a great nation and schlepped Sarah, Lot, everything they owned, and all their servants all the way to Canaan.  This reminder that God was his shield brought Abraham the comfort he needed.
