    My son "Matthew Paul Hamm" passed away on November 29th, 2016, he was 32 and as my heart is breaking I learned that Matthew was reading the bible and asking questions and praying with some older Christian men he had befriended, and that he found comfort in the passage of Psalms 23 this has brought me so much comfort and peace although I miss him dearly I know he is with God in Heaven an Angel.

    its a powerful psalm that I always wish to read. A powerful psalm that most people did not know or take very important. It always remind me that God is always there for me if I obey and have faith in Him.
