Psalm 23 - A Slight Return

July 1, 2020

I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog posts on my favorite Psalm.  I wanted to return to it today as I was thinking about being content.  In my life, the picture of peace is when my mind is content.  I watch my pups, Kona and Kailua as they nap on the floor.  Kailua often sleeps on her back, legs sticking up breathing softly.  Kona sleeps curled up almost cat-like.  They are the picture of contentment.  Jesus told us, “Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or your body, what you will...

Thinking About Psalm 23, Part 4 - I Shall Not Want

May 31, 2020

Welcome back.  I hope you have enjoyed the last three editions of this blog as much as I have writing them.  Psalm 23 is such an inspirational set of verses.  I enjoy the peace and hope it brings me; every time I read it.  Theses few verses sum up all our needs in life and all the abundance of God’s limitless grace.  Notice how it begins with “The Lord” and ends with “forever”.  God is indeed the Alpha and...
