Thank you for your visits to Poems From Psalms And Nature.

The Psalms Series 2020 was an encouragement. I have only briefly looked at the 2020 Stats, but my sense is that the Psalms series is helpful.

Good structure for me as well, and I learned more technical skills. As I reprinted verses, I proofread carefully. This led to a focus on writing craft.

Most of all — faith, comfort, hope, empathy, love, gratitude, praise.

One day at a time. Take good care.

Psalm 112

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness:
he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

Psalm 112: 4

Psalm 53 and haiku

God looked down from heaven upon the children of men,
to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.

Psalm 53: 2

Psalm 46

Be still, and know that I am God . . .

From Psalm 46: 10

There is so much comfort to be found in the Psalms. When I read them all, I begin again. Sometimes I stay with one or two Psalms, and reread.

Perhaps if the Psalms are new for some readers, you recognize some thoughts, and now know the source. You may have seen a greeting card or poster, for example. I remember this too.
