Green Pastures

The Lord is my Shepherd,  I shall not want.  He maketh me to lay down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters,  He restores my soul.  (Psalm 23)   

Those words are so incredibly beautiful I cannot express the amount of peace the Lord has given me from them.  When I was sick and overwhelmed with depression my Hubbub would simply speak Psalm 23 to me in its entirety and I would be able to find my way back to peace with the Lord right beside me.  He is my comfort, my happiness and my hope.

In todays world it is difficult to slow down, to breathe to take a step back from the busyness of this life... now, I am taking that step.  I am so thankful to God that He has given me this time to restore my soul... to heal my body. 

I am not working so I can concentrate on Physiotherapy and working with the Doctors on my medication.  I plan to start walking on my treadmill a little bit at a time and get some strength back in this body.  This is, once again, my time of healing.  We all need that every now and again.

I pray you are all well.  I am sorry I have been so absent from all of your blogs.  I hope I will do better soon.

Hugs and many blessings to all of you.

A gorgeous piece of art.

I remember one night when things were incredibly tough waking up in the middle of the night with that psalm going through my head, and it was such a comfort.

Hope all the therapy helps and things improve for you soon.

I so love that word too...and your posting sharing how those words spoke life to you and brought you to a new place of peace every time you heard it!

Have you ever heard of Matt Sorger... he has a healing CD "Healing in His Wings".... I played it over and over when I went through a physical burnout years ago. If you can find it, I think you'll be so blessed by it.
