The deaf women's retreat

The angels rejoice because the last lady pictured (Antonia) accepted the free gift of Salvation while at the retreat!!!

And that alone would have made this time all worth the while! But the blessings of it did not stop there . .

We studied Psalms 23.

It was in a small beach house with scented candles, chocolates and little goodies all around . . .

We had good fellowship, relaxed, joked and generally, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Also we made a bracelet that followed the 23 Psalm:

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. - One white bead for "sheep"
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, - a green bead for "green pastures"
he leads me beside quiet waters, - a blue bead for "quiet waters"
3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. - a clear bead for "righteousness"
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; - a black bead for "valley of the shadow of death"
your rod and your staff, they comfort me. - brown bead for "rod and staff"
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. - another brown bead for "a table"
You anoint my head with oil; - a yellow/orange bead for oil
my cup overflows. - a purple bead
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, - a pink bead
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. - a gold bead for "the house of the Lord"
I don't know about you, but this bracelet helped me to memorize all the this Psalm . . pretty cool if you ask me.

What a great way to remember Psalm 23! I love to make jewlery so I am going to have to make one for myself. I already have the Psalm memorized but it sure will be a great conversation starter!

Psalm 23 has always been my favorite Psalm, but I have never been able to memorize it right. I love this idea! I think I am even going to try and get this one to be done as one of my Mom's night group projects! Thanks for the great idea!
