For Lois

A special post for Lois, the sister of a fellow IBM:er Jim Wiltsch, who is starting a new round of chemotherapy. A few shots of some of the beautiful places and things we have seen to and prayer for your speedy recovery.

Psalm 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Sunrise on the island of Gotland, Sweden

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures: 

Tuolomne Meadows, Yosemite
he leads me beside the still waters.

Summer evening,10 PM in Överkalix Sweden, on the Kalix River, near the Arctic Circle

 3 He restores my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

The West Fjords of Iceland

 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, 

Starlight over the Grand Canyon
I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me.

Sunset on the Lighthouse near Alnes, Norway
 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.

 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: 

Sunset at Fredshög, the Southern coast of Sweden
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

  1. A wonderful tribute. Some fantastic photos! Especially love the sunset, such a huge sun!

  2. Michael - thank you so much for your beautiful Psalm 23 photos. I cannot stop looking at the photos and concentrating on the words and how perfect they are together. The Grand Canyon is awesome, and the beauty of the Fjords of Iceland brings tears to my eyes. All of the pics are perfect. I promise you I will be looking at this often.

    I feel that I have been enveloped in the arms of new friends from around the world, and I definitely feel the energy of good thoughts and prayers coming my way. My brother Jim is awesome to ask you and others to send me some encouragement. I will finish my second week of chemo tomorrow, then a week off, and then will keep going like that til May. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    1. Lois it's been a pleasure! We will keep you in our prayers and look forward to hearing how it is going :-)

  3. Michael, thank you again - I love this and want to tell you again how much I appreciate the beautiful photos that go along with Psalm 23. I am doing well - I have been on a chemo drug for almost a year with few side effects. I am blessed to have Chasing the Light to look at and to meditate on the photos.

  4. Very nice post on Psalm 23 and lovely pictures.

    God bless you.
