12 Reflections on Paintings for Our Common Home – Painting #5 “Solace of the green pasture”, and Reflection #5 “Solace of the green pasture”.


Solace of the green pasture

“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,

My cup overflows,

I will dwell in the hose of the Lord forever”.

The running stream so refreshing,

So comforting the green meadows,

The blue sky affectionately watches me,

Feel so protective with the rocky hills.

Nature protect and comfort us,

So we do protect our nature
