Rest in Peace

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.

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.

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

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

A dear friend lost his life this week. We are shocked and saddened. He is survived by a sweet, faithful wife who never lost hope and has been an example of faith and honor to me for over 15 years. And by two strong, bright, engaging sons who will continue to grow into all that God has for them. Please pray for us in the coming days.
