I just finished this book based on Psalm 23.  What a fantastic book! Each chapter deals with a burden you may carry( your luggage) and based on a verse or portion of a verse from the psalm, has a chapter about it.  I learned so much and with a different way of thinking.  For example: did you know one of the things a shepherd would do when going to a knew field would walk through it looking for poisonous plans, places to fall, snake holes, etc.  The shepherd would place oil on the sheeps noses and any snake holes he found so the snake would find it difficult to get out and the sheeps nose was protected too (one of MANY reasons sheeps had oil placed on their heads)....this goes along with "He has prepared a place for me in the presence of mine enemies"  Highly recommend this easy to read, and available on PBswap book.

THANKS for sharing about this book Sharon, it sounds like a great one!  I love the 23rd Psalm - pray that for my children regularly- have it memorized. Such a comforting Psalm- I will have to read this book!  Blessings , Jody M in FL
