Screw-up fix

Still waters at the Turvey Mill near Olney
 We all screw up in life. Some of us more overtly and painfully than others. We all need to hear the words of Jesus again, 'let the one without sin cast the first stone'.

The healing words of Psalm 23 are like a balm. Yep its a modern rendering (from the Message) and doesn't always hit the spot, but,  'Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life', is a lovely, humbling thought. He really does know how to fix us.                                          
23 1-3 God, my shepherd!
    I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
    you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
    you let me catch my breath
    and send me in the right direction.
Even when the way goes through
    Death Valley,
I’m not afraid
    when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
    makes me feel secure.
You serve me a six-course dinner
    right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
    my cup brims with blessing.
Your beauty and love chase after me
    every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
    for the rest of my life.
