Friends are coming and going in my life. Some are sick and getting better and some won’t get better this time. Some are leaving for a while. Some will return and some may not. Who knows? The knitting together of disparate souls is a grand and beautiful thing….an occurance I appreciate and say thanks for. As we walk our paths…apart but a little bit together, I offer up one of my favorite prayers. It brings me comfort when I’m unsure. Peace be with you all…
The 23rd Psalm
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 annointest 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 forever.
