    I learned to memorize this 23rd psalm when I first started to church when I was a small child. I am almost 80 now and I repeat it every night before I start my prayers. It is so comforting and beautiful. God gave us the most beautiful words to worship him. God is so good and comforting. I love him always and forever.

    Praise the Lord. I have had some hills to climb, some dark valleys. But JESUS was my Lilly in the valleys. Reading Psalm 23 daily reminded me that, JESUS is always with me though the road seem rough. He is my Shepherd who restores me and leads me in His righteousness. Praise GOD.
