As I worked on this morning’s post, From Psalm 25, I thought again about the wonderful vocabulary list that can be created from the Psalms. For our series in 2020, I quoted from the King James Version. Over the years, I have read from different Bible translations.
“Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.”
An old haiku:
Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind
* The first line of my poem is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV).
Be still, and know that I am God . . .
From Psalm 46 – April 13, 2020 post.
I love the early mornings. Time to watch the light change and sunrise, pray, prepare for the day. Work in the kitchen, then blogs and books. God’s grace.
Sometimes all is still. No wind. The leaves on tall trees still. Light and shadows. Blue sky. I read and look again later, and there may be some wind. All kinds of weather. Rain and close some windows.
This week I saw stillness.

Vocabulary List – 1 is my first post, about reflections from our series from the Psalms this year. No set schedule, simply a little more about the Psalms and daily life here. Poetry practice too.
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”
Lovingkindness – “Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning”

and I pray
may there be
mercy, love, and
in my heart
