My Oasis

My favorite mornings begin in this place, looking out my bay window on the start of a new day, with Bible and journal and coffee at hand, to sit in stillness and remember that His mercies are new every day, and that in every way and for every thing His grace is on me.  

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.  
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of
the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord

Psalm 23
