The Lord is my Shepherd�
A Psalm of David: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down
in green pastures, He leads me besides still waters. He restores my soul. He guides me
in straight paths for His Name�s sake. 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. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou
anointest my head with oil, My cup runneth over Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
This psalm of comfort addresses the concept that G-d is always with us,
particularly during life�s most difficult times when our faith in the Creator is challenged.
This visual expression of the 23rd Psalm highlights the concept that we are never alone.
We are able to work through our darkest moments by acknowledging G-d as our partner.
The image of a shepherd�s staff defines the predominant movement in the painting, cutting a
strong diagonal through the green pastures, still waters and the valley of the shadow of death.
These elements are represented by the green and blue lines and black bands flowing horizontally through the painting. By naming these specifics, we are able to recognize
that G-d provides us with comfort and protection as we face our challenges in life.
The double yud, as seen in many prayer books as G-d�s name, is marked on the staff.
The staff�s handle is superimposed over a complete copper circle, reminding us that
we are complete in the realization that we are not alone. The top of the painting in silver,
exemplifies the light that emerges from our faith and trust in G-d�s presence at all times.
The Lord, as our shepherd, enables us to navigate our trials, leading us back into the light.
We are not left wanting.
