The valley of the Shadow of Death came to me while surfing through one of my favorite websites www.Biblegateway.com with Psalm 23:
Psalm 23 (King James Version)
1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Then as I previously posted with Tennyson's Charge of the Light Brigade, the literary value of this theme and finally with its connection to LSU and Tiger stadium. Why is this on my mind? No clue, but for some reason the Spirit has been guiding me here, and I will keep reflecting. I hope that any one of these references to Death Valley has interested you.
