My Cup Runneth Over

My cup runneth over! (by John Brainard)

I was shooting this photo and was reminded of the 23rd Psalm and began to think about how blessed I am by God. He's provided so much for me and my family I can only be thankful.

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures:
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul:
He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For You are with me;
Your rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
You preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
You annoint my head with oil; My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

--23rd Psalm
