my cup overflows
~ ~ ~
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 the 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 forever.

When my mother passed away in 2021 she donated her body to Harvard Medical School
for use in research and education.
Recently, there have been indictments against an employee, his wife, and others that are so vile,
and sub-human that I can't even speak of them.
We have received notification from Harvard that while they cannot say for sure right now
it is quite probable that my mother's body was effected by these evil people.
As my sister, brother, and I process this information and what it means to us I am brought back to
My prayers go to all of those families and loved ones who are touched by these heinous atrocities.
My cup surely overflows because I know that no evil can touch my mother
as she sits at the table that the Lord has prepared for her.
