February Patience

As I pray a Psalm, on this sunny morning, I think “February patience.” I’ll try a poem.

praying a Psalm
in my small study
trees and sky
the verses bring
beauty and hope
to Winter days
and all days

IN HIS PRESENCE By Carol Purington

Today I am reading IN HIS PRESENCE: A Collection Of Psalms, Hymns, Christmas Carols and Spiritual Songs, By Carol Purington. A wonderful and beautiful book.

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness:
thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress;
have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

Saturday afternoon

Saturday afternoon
some time to listen
to quiet music and read

sunlight fills a lamp
that is not needed now
and the light shines
on the wall with art
by people I know

who also offer light
beauty hope

From Psalm 119:

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.

Psalm 119: 105

trees

the green that goes
the green that stays
evergreens

trees with leaves
and Fall colors
and then their
shapes and sky

trees with holiday
lights in Winter

and trees
with blossoms
and new leaves
in Spring

From Psalm 1:

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1: 3
