Psalm 23:1-6

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.

  1. ‘Poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye’: That was what Saint Peter said to me Michael (Yes I Do Know Him) when I asked him why there was no body in his tomb in Rome. “Well obviously it’s because I’m here.” He said.

  2. Michael, I am sorry that you have had a difficult time and wish you all the strength you need to get through it. This is the most beautiful post – thank you. My favourite psalm, and such a perfectly stunning picture to celebrate the still calm beauty of the words.
    Very best wishes to you.

    • Hi Emma, I wish God gives me the strength at this time – I am sure He will.
      I have chosen this photo after shortlisting a few. This shows the tranquility of the JiuZhaiGou lakes in China.
