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.

Psalm 146

While I live will I praise the LORD:
I will sing praises unto my God
while I have any being.

Psalm 145 and poems

Every day will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Psalm 145: 2

These are some of my poems about the beauty of everyday life.

new year sunrise
light fills
the red poinsettia

branches viewed
in the corner windows
beloved old tree

May sunrise
a few more flowers
on the Christmas cactus

Sunday afternoon
I know the time
by the light

summer evening
light fills the evergreens
with old and new growth

reading poems
from years ago
perennials grow

mid-July
daylilies and hosta
tell the time

frost soon –
cutting flowers
generously

rereading Psalms
colors of leaves
a deeper gold

roots in His Word
I will flower again
