Suffering Seasons – valley & flames – We will experience much trouble and face death. We have no fear, for our Shepherd guides us through every trial.

Perpetual Overflow – cup & water – God nurtures abundant life. He protects us from our enemies. He blesses us. He makes a special place for us in heaven.
