Psalm 23 "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul...Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...I will fear no evil, for you are with me..." Praying that God's presence and peace will fill your family during this time.
