April 14, 2009

Today's picture is of a bracelet I received from my Aunt this weekend. It was made by a woman in her prayer group who has a degenerative spinal disease, and can only stand for 2 hours a day, for only 20 minutes at a time (and I was complaining that I had it bad this weekend. YIKES!!). The bracelet represents Psalm 23, and starts with the white mother of pearl bead and goes clockwise to the green bead.

Psalm 23

The LORD Is My Shepherd

A Psalm of David.

23:1 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


  1. That is a beautiful necklace! I love what it stands for too.

    Have a great day!

  2. What a beautiful prayer bracelet, great idea!! And that psalm is one of my faves! I can't imagine that woman's pain, kinda puts my complaining in perspective.
