The 23rd Psalm


the 23rd Psalm in relation to Nan's life

1) The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

(I am happy to have a personal relationship with God.  He provides for all my needs.)

2) He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters,  He restores my soul.

(Because of God's love and protection, I could sleep anywhere in peace;  I love to sit by the creek which runs softly through the woods on our property.  Every day He lifts my spirit.)

3) He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

(He keeps me on the straight and narrow path to Jesus.)

4) 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.

(I have walked through the valley and He was with me.  He is my protector.  The rod and staff are symbols of God's strength and authority in all situations.)

5) You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

(A hedge of protection is always around me.  I am no longer afraid.   Actually, You anointed my head with oil through Pastor Melanie.  I am continually filled with the Holy Spirit.)

6) Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

(Mine is a wonderful life and I look  forward to each new day.  Don't mourn my death - I will live with the LORD for all eternity in Heaven.   I hope to see you there....)

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
