A father woke early in the morning and went out to the apple tree.
He stood in front of the tree gazing at the apples. They were all precious to him.
He climbed the tree and inspected each apple carefully.
He protected them from the bugs and birds that wanted to eat them.
He returned home later that morning. His family asked him about the apples. Why had he returned without them?
He replied, “They are safe from harm. They are still growing and not yet ready to enter our home.”
“Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings from the wicked who despoil me.”Psalm 17:8-9
