Picture Perfect~~~Safe


Free from harm, injury, or risk; untouched or unthreatened by danger or injury; unharmed; unhurt; secure; whole; as, safe from disease; safe from storms; safe from foes.
In the darkest part of the night, when the storms of life begin to drift through our thoughts, what do you reach for........

A hand to pull us through.....

A voice that brings peace.  That calms you, leads you through the storms, to a place within.  A place "safe".
