Psalm 91:11

“For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways, In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.”

This is really good news because I totally hate stubbing my toe.  I remember one time, when I was young, I tripped while running.  I should have totally face-planted.  Instead I landed very softly on the ground, face forward, stomach down.  I swear my guardian angel was underneath me, absorbing that blow.
