DECEMBER PROMPT

The holidays seem to run people ragged year after year, even to the point of causing some people near nervous breakdowns. Christmas has been canonized in poetry, so this month we will be writing about another subject. Your prompt for December is undoubtedly one of the most beloved passages of scripture in the Bible, the Twenty-third Psalm. Most people can't seem to find time to breathe over the holidays, much less; steal away to green pastures and still waters, and having your head anointed with oil, that was a metaphor for something you will need to research. Now for the wedding feast, most people never get invited to a gala banquet, much less a feast, this is the wedding feast for our Heavenly Father and His bride, what will it be like. Bring this Psalm into modern day reality. How would it be written, if it were written directly to us? Without being cliche`, show me the Twenty-third Psalm for 2014 humanity.
