Give Me Poetry!

This morning, as my husband left for work, I said to him,"I'm reading Galations...and I'm bored."

He smiled...because, Galations may be many things...but it is not boring.

But, even as I continue reading in the book, I am still a little bored. I realized that I need a little poetry in my life...some beautiful passion to cling to all morning. The kind of words that linger well into the afternoon and come back to remind you, at evening's close.

I went to the Psalms and there I read this:
"In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."
- Psalm 4:8

It took my breath away...an actual breath-stopping gasp. Beautiful!

I love that verse! I pray it over the kids when they feel afraid and I pray it every night when Alan is gone. It's becoming a habit to just pray it no matter what! :) I have a friend who made a tune to accompany it and her very little ones sing it nightly.
