Monday Devotional

Starting the week right, with the Lord….

This is “the rose that followed me 200 miles,” Spring 2012.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I lack.
In green pastures you let me graze;
to safe waters you lead me;
you restore my strength.
You guide me along the right path
for the sake of your name.
Even when I walk through a dark valley,
I fear no harm for you are at my side;
your rod and staff give me courage.
You set a table before me
as my enemies watch;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Only goodness and love will pursue me
all the days of my life;
I will dwell in the house of the Lord
for years to come.
~Eowyn

Obviously, this is not the point… Read more »

It’s not your’s until it’s in your own words….
parrots can recite.
I just wish I did Hebrew…maybe when we dwell in heaven 🙂

I think the new translation is refreshing and certainly carries the beloved context of the 16th century KJV translation.
You know I always adore the garden photos! When we gather together another good group of them, I’ll make a video. LOL
