Psalm 23 (Videos)
I'm not much of a videographer, but I thought I'd share these little videos of the girls. They had been saying they were afraid at bedtime, and I remembered our having a children's book about Psalm 23. The book, Comfort for a Child's Heart by David and Helen Haidle, explains the psalm one line at a time, which is exactly how the girls learned it. It took a month or so of bedtimes for them to memorize the entire thing, and they continue to recite it every night. It does seem to comfort them, and you know, I didn't anticipate how comforted I would be in relearning the psalm myself, also in knowing my little girls will carry it into any and every situation. Psalm 23 was our friend Bob Pino's favorite, and I like to think he's looking down. I'm so thankful for the timeless beauty and relevance of God's Word.
