 Psa 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;He leads me beside quiet waters.  

 Psa 23:3 He restores my soul; He guides me inthe paths of righteousness For His name's sake.

 Psa 23:4 Even though I walk through the valleyof the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Yourstaff, they comfort me.  

 Psa 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presenceof my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.  

 Psa 23:6 Surely goodness and loving-kindnesswill follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of theLORD forever.  






O’Neal: Descendent of High Kings; Family of rulers; Passionate, or Champion


  1Cr13:4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag andis not arrogant,  

 1Cr 13:5 does not act unbecomingly; it doesnot seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrongsuffered,  

 1Cr 13:6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness,but rejoices with the truth;  

 1Cr 13:7 [fn]bears all things, believes allthings, hopes all things, endures all things.

My Daily Conversation with God

Posted on September 1, 2011 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (2)

A few Weeks ago I was asked to present a spoken word (a poem or writing of some sort spoken out loud to an audience). For a few days before I had tried to come up with something, but it didn't seem to be quite right. Finally, at the very last moment I got inspired. I wrote it and then spoke it and it seemed to hit a chord with the audience. Dr. Linda Mintle who is an author and friend asked permission to post it for her website. I said yes. You can read that piece on her blog here:
