Remembering Opa Siebert: Personal

Last week Tuesday, my grandfather, Hans Siebert (we call him Opa Siebert) passed away.  We started off this past Long Weekend with his funeral on Friday.
One passage that kept popping up as people spoke, was Psalm 23.  The pastor, family and friends all brought it up and I believe it was one of my grandfather's favourite passages in the Bible.

"The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk 
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
- Psalm 23 (NIV)
