Psalms 23

In Courtney’s words: “Each blogger will select a verse and write a post explaining what that verse means to them.  It can be as long or as short as you want.  It can be a personal testimony, a devotional, or Bible study in nature.  It can be a photo that you believe describes the verse.  Anything goes.”

Rules

  • Claim 1 of 6 verses in Psalms 23 by Monday, July 5, 2010 and then write a new blog post about how it inspires you. It’s ok to claim a verse that someone else has claimed, but only if all 6 verses have been claimed at least once.
  • Submit your entry by leaving your permalink url in a comment on the announcement post.

Prize

A random participant will win a free custom Twitter background
