Weekend Reflection: The Still Waters

Today We Mourn With Those Who Mourn

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Psalm 23 (KJV)


It’s the weekend. Around here we remove our shoes and tour the stillness. Start with Sandra Heska King’s Still Saturday.  Then drop by Deidra Riggs’ Sunday CommunityYou’ll join us, yes? We’ve saved you a place.


  1. What a beautiful picture, and oh how I love the 23rd Psalm. (It was my Mother’s favorite) 🙂 I’ve been wanting to go to the Laity Lodge for a retreat – hoping I can do so soon. Blessings – and thanks much for stopping by my blog today!

    • It was my pleasure, Sarah! And I’m glad to see you here. I hope you get to Laity someday–it truly is like no other place on earth.

  2. Just reading Psalm 23 is like a retreat, isn’t it? It’s such a beautiful picture of God’s love for us – so much in these few verses to rest in. Hope you are having a beautiful weekend, Sheila. xox

  3. Great combo of the Word and the photo. You really tied it together…and spread it around to the rest of us.
    Thanks much!
