______ is my Shepherd

May 9, 2021

Psalm 23:1-4  1 A psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. 2 He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. 3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. 4 Even when I walk through the darkest valley,* I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. 

One of the greatest lessons moms, and dads, can teach their children:  God is enough.
