The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters. He
restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness 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: I will
dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
There is a special place in our hearts
for those we loved, for those who have love us
without question, without a word or promise..
There is a special place where there is no pain or fear,
where love flows freely..
There is a special place to rest in our hearts forever.
A BETTER PLACE
There’s a place I’ve never seen beyond
this world we know. A place I’ve only heard
of but someday hope to go -
It’s not on any map, there are no road stops to take me
there. But it’s a place of perfect peace where
hearts are free from care...
And though I understand
some may be saddened when I leave,
One day, we all will meet again - that’s what I believe
When it’s time to travel there, I think I’ll wear a smile,
I’ll say good-bye to those I love, but only for a while.
Knowing there are others who have traveled there alone,
Who cannot wait to greet me and whisper “welcome home.”
We would like to express our deepest, most heartfelt sympathy to the family of
ROBERT EARL WALKER SR., during their bereavement. We pray that they find
strength and comfort in the Lord. May God keep you in His care, He will ease
your pain and wipe away your tears. We pray that you experience the peace and
comfort only God can give.
