In Loving Memory Of
Bobby Dale Brandon
July 4, 1940 - January 2, 2017
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me lie down in green pastures.
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in
the paths of righteousness, for His name's sake.
Yea, 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.
Thou preparest a table before me in the
presence of mine enemies. Thou anointest
my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
me all the days of my life, and I will
dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
The Twenty ~ Third Psalm
The Serenity Prayer
(later version, attributed to Reinhold Neibuhr)
God, grant me the serenity,
To accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things I can;
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time.
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it.
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
