The Lord is our Shepherd. He is our light in the darkness. He is the voice that cries in the wilderness of our pain when we are hurt or alone. We are his beloved children. The Lord who is our shepherd continuously draws us towards the truth - the truth about ourselves and about the world. It is the Lord who protects us always who is the truth that sets us free....
