Barbara was pure and undefiled by God the Father because she cared for orphans and widows in their affliction and kept herself unstained from the world. James 1:27


Psalm 100 KJV

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God It is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves. We are this people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto hi, and bless his name. For the Lord is good, his mercy is everlasting: and his truth endureth to all generations. 


Psalm 23 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 thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 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 forever.
