    My favorite chapter in the BIBLE> One that speaks FROM the heart, and tells of God's glory. It will be read at my "final goodbye" service...absolutely.

    Favourite psalm, it says everything, it’s short, and easy to recall. It’s also very beautiful and
    Reassuring. Reminds us that God is there and protecting us from harm, if we call on him.
    Thank you king David for reminding us of His love.
