Mercy and Gratitude

We have enjoyed thrift stores in our area, over the years.

One example is Goodwill. Yesterday I learned that the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative (MHVI) and Goodwill are “strong partners.”

I have written poems about paintings and other art from thrift stores. Some of my favorite clothes are from the stores. I plan to look at my archives and rediscover a few poems, and post here with links to the store sites.

One of my goals this year is to go through my books and poetry journals, and then prepare a few boxes of gifts to donate. I also buy used books from other places at Amazon, and discover books discarded by libraries, for example. Only so much room to store, and good to share with new readers.

I love the old books. There may be an old library card, or a handwritten dedication. So many stories.

My previous post, MERCY, can be the first post in this series.

Psalm 100

There are 150 Psalms, and today’s post is for Psalm 100.

PSALM 100

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the LORD is good: his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
