The Knight's Garden


PSALM 23

The lord is my shepherd. I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside the still waters.




He restores my soul.
He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his names 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 over flows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life and dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. N.I.V.

Oh Maggie...may the Knight be at peace and his family remember the good days rather than the mad ones.

Beautiful photos to go with one of my favorite psalms. I hope your daughter and her family can now move on with their lives.

Glad to know you made it home safely, Maggie May, and didn't get stranded at Victoria Station:)

It's so sad, isn't it Maggie, but I hope your daughter and the kids are okay now. It's good to have you back too. May the knight rest in peace.

Maggie - here's a bloody big hug for you. That is so very touching and tugs at the old heart strings. I hope you are okay and that the family is too. Time heals all. X

That is very moving Maggie. Whenever I see flowers with dad or mum I find it hard not to cry.

Glad to see you back again. Your comment at mine about giving birth made me laugh:)

Dear Maggie - just got back to find news of the Knight. Had been thinking of you but so sorry to hear that your daughter and her boys have had to bear all of this. And you and your husband too, of course. Hopefully your daughter will find strength to look to her future now and I pray the Knight will rest in peace.

Sending hugs for you all.
