for a moment

for a moment
I pause from reading
the Psalms
in a Bible that
has kept me company
in my living room,
my little study,
a hospital and
nursing home
with Mom –
on sunny days
and all days
to tape a few more pages
back together

so grateful

I sit and read the Psalms, sometimes many in the mornings, and sometimes one or two.  This fills my soul and I can approach other tasks with a new heart.  I was brought up to achieve a lot, as the world defines achievement.  Lately I am feeling more than content.

as I pray the Psalms
how peaceful the trees

He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

Psalm 147: 16 (KJV)
