~ The 23rd Psalm ~

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth 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.


Joe took his own life...
