A Woman’s 21st Century Psalm

A Womans 21st Century Psalm

Sometimes we just have to put it all out there!  We burst with so much energy that to voice that energy is essential.  I really feel that a true psalm allows us to do that.  A psalm by historical terms is a sacred song or hymn used in worship.  The first psalms I read were from the Bible.  I fell in love with this part of the Bible at an early age.  When I wrote this psalm, it was at a time where I needed to voice my thanks and praises to God for all the gifts I had been blessed with.  I have even been blessed so much more since that time.  I just said it all—-I proclaimed where all my belief, trust, and life is vested.  So go out this week—or go in!!!  And write your anthem, chorale, spiritual, or canticle proclaiming your thanks for blessings!

 A Woman’s 21st Century Psalm

My soul praises God, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit!

For He dwells outside of me and within me creating the joy within every breath—

Here, There, and Everywhere!


He is the daughter who rest her curls upon the mother’s shoulder for one brief moment passing her energy of love to the mother’s heart.

Praise the Living!


He is the sweet souled son who taller than his own mother, wraps his muscular arms around her, and lays his head upon her shoulder to pass his compassion and pure kindness.

Praise the Light!


He is the mother’s strong willed son who in one small moment leans forward displaying his mossy brown hair for a kiss from his mother on his head and voices “I love you.”

Praise the Longing!


He is the smile from two faces that show the signs of living and yet can still give love so deeply and unconditionally.

Praise the Long Journey!


He is the warm brown and black fur from the creatures that know nothing but loyalty and yet ask for nothing in return except a rub and a play.

Praise the Laughter!


He is the man who once with ebony hair now finds sprinkles of salt all throughout from experiences that have made him grow wiser, yet more dependent on God.  A man who promised many years ago that the heart he gave to her would not ever be given again to anyone except God.  A man who serves her, loves her, woes her, challenges her, and seeks her love.

Praise the Love!


He is the friend that always knows the right words of encouragement or the right words of truth to give you at the right time.

Praise Language and Logic!


He is the quiet morning, the wind that touches my cheek, the dark black sky with piercing light, and the deer with their thirst.

Praise the Landscape!


He is the rain against the window, the warmth of the candle light, the warm sun against my skin, the snow on my nose, and the peace in the quietness of life.

Praise the Lord!


He is the heaven, the hell, the angels, and the demons.  All who make us grow on the journey.

Praise the Legend!


He is the peace and the giving, and we are the chaos and war, but He leads us to victory with ourselves and each other.

Praise the Leader!


He gave all to me and I am His vessel.

He creates my soul and my thoughts and my heart to serve in His holy journey—

Here, there, and forever more!

Praise the Listening!


My soul praises God, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit!

For every moment and every day and every gesture and every sign showing us the greatest reason for life!

The God, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit that lives, loves, and laughs forever!

Thank you for joining me this week.  I hope you seriously consider everyday finding the thanks you can give for the many blessings.  I am just like you.  I get wrapped up in the busyness of life and find it much easier to complain or see only the troubles instead of the many good happenings in my life.  I pray for you to be given the sight this week to see and then to tell of your many gifts!  Blessings to you and yours!  Praise the spirits of the souls in others!
