Psalm 23


Right before I had heart surgery my cousin cliff sent me a bookmark of psalm 23 with pictures of lambs (my favorite).  I probably read it a gazillion times before I went under. 
  It brought me so much peace.  then and now. always. 

Enjoy

A Psalm of David

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 

 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. 

PSALM 23

  5. What a beautiful site you have!! I just love it.
    You know, I had surgery on my head when I was just a little girl(fractured skull)and I think because of it I've always known God - could never really understand when people said they didn't. And as I grew older and learned more about God and his Son this Psalm meant so much to me. He really is with us and knowing Him is "still waters!"
    Please come and follow me at my history blog - It's about St. Nicholas - and I have a feeling you will like it!
