The Root of Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;

you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,

and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

      Thanks Ally. The Psalm was hanging on the wall of a restaurant we ate at, which gave me a bit of inspiration.

  1. This is wonderfully constructed. I kept thinking ‘oh, that’s my favourite’ and then I’d get further on and find another one. I liked the last path of righteousness and then the anointed oil and then the first goodness and mercy and then the stained glass windows. Such richness. 🙂

      This was a beautiful area of Minnesota. Just lovely. I have so many photos, it was hard choosing the ones to use for the post.

      I would love to go back to the adult refreshment in hand and viewing the green pastures from the bicycle seat.
