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
