“the meditation of my heart”

The verses are selections from the 2020 series.

Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength,
and my redeemer.

be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

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.

As you can see, for this collage I selected a post from each month for the series (March 2020 – July 2020). The collages are another way to review and perhaps introduce the Psalms to new readers. Always new.
