Still Waters

Psalm 23 has always been a favorite of mine and one of the first passages of Scripture that I memorized as a child. 

 Today as I was reading it again, verse 2b appeared so much more significant, especially the words ‘lead’ and ‘still.’
I looked up their definitions on http://dictionary.reference.com/ and these seemed to create a perfect fit.
~ “He acts as a guide, to show me the way beside waters free from turbulence or commotion.”
These winged beauties seem to understand this interpretation fully …  and me? I continue learning to be lead by my Heavenly Father, and most of all, learning to remain still and commotion free in the process!

"Still and commotion free" can be difficult skills to learn. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and lovely pictures.
