My girl friend, Jenny, invited me to spend the day at the beach with her and her family. I had fun digging in the sand and swimming in the lake. I forgot to wear sun block. When I got home, I was really red. It hurt. My grandma told me not to think about it as being burned, but sun-kissed. She took out her Bible and read

"The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night." (Ps 121:5, 6)

I thought it was funny to think of getting moon burned. The moon is reflected light. I reflect light too. I chose to trust God to be my keeper. I went to bed and slept all night. In the morning, I had a tan. I didn't blister or peel.
