I just came from an evening with my sisters. Yesterday, I spent it with my other friends when we had Janis’ (belated) bridal shower. Though I am exhausted this weekend from all the cooking, prepping, baking and cleaning up after, I feel very pleased and very blessed to be in the company of such friends.
So, before I sleep, this is my prayer to give thanks.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
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.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
