Psalm 23:4 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.
A shadow is a dark shape that is formed when an object blocks the source of light. Shadows appear black because the visible light cannot make its way past the shape; if there is no light falling on an object, then it will be black as there is no light to reflect.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
Today is the day my sweet mother entered her Eternal home seven years ago. It seems like yesterday, yet forever ago. What I love about the shadow picture above is the bouquet God shared with me for my mother today!
