Psalmody: A Benediction

In the spirit of this wonderful Christmas season, when I am reminded of what abundant blessings are in this life, I want to share another psalm/hymn from the old church Psalmody I found tucked away in my parents home! One of the most beautiful elements that I love about this benediction is the emphasis on relationships and community. This year I am so completely thankful for my family and loved ones.2012-05-19_22-58-10_221

Courage This Day

Not long ago, in a fit of nostalgic insomnia, I was searching through some books tucked away in my childhood bedroom, and I found this poem, which was written by a woman named Edith Kent Battle. It resonated so clearly with me and my daily thoughts and prayers, so I thought I would share.

This is my prayer this week.
