Psalm 128

Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD;
that walketh in his ways.

For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands:
happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

Psalm 128: 1 – 2

I also thought it might be helpful if I add a few links to earlier posts, to some of the current posts.

Psalm 122, photos and poems

Peace be within thy walls,
and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions’ sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek thy good.

Psalm 122: 7 – 9

These are two poems that I posted before. Over time, I am learning the poems for a new book, with Karl’s photos. It is interesting to see which poems work well in different posts, and that I remember easily. Sometimes I rediscover poems in my archives.

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

“Peace be within thy walls.”
