New Series From The Psalms

As I was praying this morning, I thought I’d read the Psalms again. I read from various English translations.

I thought I would simply post a verse or two here from many Psalms.
And I’ll add a picture.

For this series, I will quote from the King James Version. My goal is to offer some moments of rest, beauty, and hope.

My next post will begin with Psalm 1. You are welcome to reblog our posts.

They Can Return

they can return
in new and different ways
some of the things
thought lost

my mother and I were
closer in her old age
though we always loved
language and books

a past illness led to me
simply sitting with her
for hours as that was 
something I could do

conversations
the trust that grows
through decades
of unconditional love

now sometimes
these many years
since her passing
I remember what she said
and the advice still applies

My poem is from May 2019.

“earthen vessels”

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels,

that the excellency
of the power

may be of God,
and not of us.

2 Corinthians 4: 7 (KJV)
