The Valley of the Shadow

Powell Valley

Psalms 23:4 KJV

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.

I heard a preacher say one time that without the Son there would be no shadow. I had always interpreted this scripture as death is only a shadow when Jesus is right there walking through that valley with us. Either way, He is right there with us!

Thank you all my dear friends for your prayers for this family.

Good Morning Hope,
That is a beautiful picture. Do you know where it's at? "THANK YOU" for sharing it with us. I love how you do your Sunday post's. I will continue to pray for you and Dave as well as Dave's Sister as well. I wish I lived closer so that I could do something for you. Just know, that you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
