Psalm 96 and short poem

O sing unto the LORD a new song:
sing unto the LORD, all the earth.

Psalm 96: 1

predawn and watching
the sky grow light
gift of another day
to read and write

Lake Michigan: Poems and Photos

pink clouds
over Lake Michigan
as I listen to old hymns
my heart gathers peace
for this day

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

Gratitude and Hope

May garden
daffodils bloom
through the night

As you know, yesterday we reached Psalm 75. There are 150 Psalms. I am going to take some time – perhaps a few days – and reread the posts in this series so far. Thank you so much for your support.

Karl took these beautiful new photos of our daffodils in the yard.

peaceful morning

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

Psalm 40

I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

Psalm 40: 1 – 3
