THE 23rd PSALM

I recently saw this in a book I was reading. The book was written by a Priests wife.



Not quite the 23rd Psalm that I am accustomed to and bearing in mind I don't usually go for adaptions, but this certainly gave me "fuel for thought" as a busy Mother/Homemaker.




The 23rd Psalm




The Lord is my pace setter I shall not rush


He makes me stop for quiet intervals


He provides me with images of stillness which restore my serenity


He leads me in the ways of efficiency through calmness of mind


And His guidance is peace.


Even though I have a great many things to


accomplish each day I will not fret For His presence is here


His timelessness, His all importance will keep me in balance.


He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of my activity.


By annointing my mind with His oils of tranquillity,


my cup of joyous energy overflows.


Truly harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours,


For I shall walk in the pace of my Lord and dwell in His house forever.
