A to Z Blogging Challenge: The "A" Edition

Today starts the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge, where we post every day except Sunday, going through the alphabet.  I did this last year, and rather enjoyed it, so I'm participating again this year.   Today is "A," of course.  They suggest we have a theme of sorts, but that would make too much sense, wouldn't it?  I just don't know what kinds of posts you'll be seeing this month...should you choose to visit!  

From my personal, handwritten journal...from my alone time with God:
Do not be afraid.

It's His commandment that we not be afraid.  He will teach us, guide us, protect us and keep us!  Fear is our downfall, do not let it have dominion over you, nor even a place in your life.  Look to the Most High God, for He is our redeemer, and He cares for us. 
You are my hiding place, you shall preserve me from trouble.  You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.  I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.  ~Psalm 32:7-8

The A Word of the Day:  

[ab-uh-rey-shuhn] noun

The act of departing or deviating from the ordinary, right, normal, or usual course or type. 

It's just an aberration that this post has so many elements.  Some other posts may have only one.

But it certainly must be a favorite of the
