Remembrance and Hope

For new readers, and all readers, last year we posted short selections from the 150 Psalms, with pictures. The Psalms Series 2020: A Summary offers more information.

The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Psalm 23: 1-3

“thy saving health among all nations”

God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.

Psalm 67: 1 – 2

Poems From Psalms And Nature

There are words and phrases from our Psalms series that stay with me, and that I hope to include in new poems, with references.

Mercy – “for his mercy endureth for ever”

Psalm 136

Lovingkindness – “Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning”

Psalm 143

before dawn

bird songs
in the yard
through an open
kitchen window

and I remember
to hear His
lovingkindness
in
the morning

and I pray

may there be
mercy, love, and
kindness
in my heart
all day

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.
