The Shield was another of the Fear's names. According to Laughter, it means he shields the seed of Abraham the way a man starting a fire shields the flame. When Sarah was about to die childless, the Fear gave her a son. When Abraham was about to slaughter the son, the Fear gave him the ram. He is always shielding us like a guttering wick, Laughter said, because the fire he is trying to start with us is a fire that the whole world will live to warm its hands at. It is a fire in the dark that will light the whole world home.- Frederick Buechner, The Son of Laughter

Hunter Hayes - Flashlight
Country music has a long list of classic songs for Easter, but the spirit is alive with new songwriters as well. Hunter Hayes is the youngest male artist to reach #1 on the Billboard Country chart. This song is from his 2014 album, Storyline. It fits not just Easter, but the other 364 days of the year too.
Flashlight (Songwriters: Hunter Hayes, Troy Verges, Barry Dean)
Today the world awaits, expectant. But there is still a light to mark our way.
