Be Here Then

why and how to write & create an ethical will, hospice card, or other legacy

A Biblical verse that might be of comfort in a hospice card

Find a blank card with an image on the front that you find peaceful and comforting.  A ray of sun blazing through a forest; a setting sun over the ocean; sheep in a green pasture; a path through the woods.  You get the idea.

Then write Psalm 23 inside.

Sign it in whatever way is appropriate to your hospice person.  I’m a fan of “thinking of you very much” at least.

Here it is:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to 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 though art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  [even just this line alone is lovely]

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 for ever.

–Psalm 23, King James version
