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.

Psalm 23

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

Psalm 23.

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.

let's have coffee

Grace and truth


  1. I'm very sorry to hear this.


  2. Oh MY. I was just watching this on the news a couple days ago. I am so very sorry! But you know that your Mom is now joyful, and nothing on earth can touch her now. No sorrow or tears. But it is those she left who must feel so betrayed! Will you be taking any legal action?

  3. I'm so sorry. Praying peace and healing for you and your family.

  4. Oh I'm so sorry that you're having to process such disturbing news. Praying for you and your family. And yes, what a comfort to know that your mother is safe and at peace at the Lord's banqueting table and is not touched by this sorrow.

  5. Unspeakable and I am so sorry that you are having to process it. Trusting alongside you for peaceful resolution of the horror.

  6. I am at such a loss for words as I have found this act to be horrific. May the Lord be close to you and your family as you process all of this. I am praying for you and your family and join you in praying for all the families involved.

  7. I am so very sorry. What disturbing news. What a blessing that though people mistreated your mother's body, she was at peace at the Lord's banqueting table. May God give your family grace and peace as you process and respond.

  8. I'm so sorry. It must be heartbreaking to receive this news. I'm glad you have the comfort of knowing that your mother is safe with Jesus.

  9. I'm so sorry to hear that your mother's body may have been affected by this. My dad had the same wish that his body be donated for science. So after he died, we donated his body to a research hospital in our state. Of course we have no way of knowing what actually happened, but they did at least send us a nice thank you letter several months later, which I was thankful for.
