Vocabulary List – 1

There are words and phrases from our Psalms series that stay with me, and that I hope to include in new poems, with references.

Mercy – “for his mercy endureth for ever”

Psalm 136

Lovingkindness – “Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning”

Psalm 143

before dawn

bird songs
in the yard
through an open
kitchen window

and I remember
to hear His
lovingkindness
in
the morning

and I pray

may there be
mercy, love, and
kindness
in my heart
all day

The Psalms

There are 150 Psalms, so our current series is almost complete – and only a small beginning.

The Psalms are a part of my life. Perhaps you know them well, and perhaps they are new for some readers.

When we reach Psalm 150, I will let the posts rest, and then reread. I would like to write about some of the themes: hope, love, mercy . . .

I am grateful for all who help with the pictures. You know the credits from the posts.

Thank you.
