Sheila’s favorite passage PSALMS 23
The LORD is my Shepard. I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me besides the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the path of righteousness for his name sake. Yea, 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 and they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me. All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
