Prayers for Health and Peace

God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.

Psalm 67: 1 – 2

Seasons of Gratitude

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally

Posts from The Psalms Series

The Psalms Series from 2020 featured short selections from the 150 Psalms. I began with the post, New Series From The Psalms (March 17, 2020). “My goal is to offer some moments of rest, beauty, and hope.”

This fall and winter, I plan to reprint a few posts. Perhaps the series is new for current readers, and those who have read before may enjoy a review. I often review past work on my sites.

Thank you to all who have visited Poems From Psalms And Nature for years, and those who are here today!

Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

Psalm 5: 1
