The Good Shepherd

This is another commissioned piece.  I love The Great Shepherd who watches over us.  I have often sought the comfort of His Presence these past few weeks.  How grateful I am for Him Who loves and understands my heart.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.  
He makes me lie down in green pastures; 
He leads me beside quiet waters.  
He restores my soul; 
He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.  
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, 
I fear no evil for You are with me.  
Your rod and staff, they comfort me.  
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; 
You have anointed my head with oil;  
My cup overflows.  
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, 
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
~ Psalm 23, penned by King David of Israel

 God bless you, dear ones.  May the Good Shepherd watch over you and keep you safely in His arms.

May the comfort of your faith help you as you grieve.
It is a sad time.
