Psalm 148: All of Creation Joins in Praise

Praise the Lord! The entire creation joins in praising God Even the highest heavens sing His praises The angel choruses sing The little stars twinkle The sun rises in praise The moon beams The clouds pour out showers of praise Then release colorful ribbons That spread out bows of praise The great gray whale spouts […]

Psalm 141Reflection

The second volume of my series, Psalms in the Key of my Life, was created fresh. There was nothing I had written earlier that was worth keeping (actually very litte that was written at all). Not so, with volume III. Psalms 121 and 141, I kept just as they were. There were several others I […]

Praise the Lord!

“Praise the Lord” is both the title of the third (and final) book in the Psalms in the Key of my Life series, and the title of the 150th psalm. Today, I finished the rather rough first draft of the third book. I thought I’d be jumping up and down, but I was mentally drained. […]

A Blessed Carol Delights and Exhales

In spite of having some crazy virus and madness with all four of my fountain pens, I finished the first draft of Psalm 119. More than some of the others, it’s really a first draft. Oddly enough, the first three stanzas are the worst ones because I didn’t really have my groove at that point. […]

Awesome New Review

Psalm 119

Ah, the greatest challenge of them all. Psalm 119 is an acrostic poem with a stanza for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet (there are 22 letters in their alphabet), each stanza has eight verses. Each verse begins with the letter that begins that stanza (so eight verses for Aleph, eight verses for Beth, etc., […]

Praise the Lord!

The title of this blog post is also the title of Volume III of my “Psalms in the Key of my Life” series.  I have completed the first ten so far. The challenge this time so far, is in finding a fresh way to say what it seems has already been said. As usual, God […]
