Old, yet always new...

The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need


He lets me rest in green meadows;

He leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.

He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.

Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,

I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.

Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me
.

You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.

You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.

Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,

and I will live in the house of the Lord
forever.

As I was reading Psalm 23, I thought it would be good to write a blog about it, but my words added nothing... this familiar and beautiful Psalm is all I wanted to say, it speaks to my heart.

No words can compare to Scripture. I love Psalm 23. This morning I was reading "Everything by Prayer"; all about your dad's faith walk. I'm learning to plead the promises of God. Thank you for sharing Sonja.

Much love to you sis and also to Carol Joy,
Debbie
