Psalm Challenge 89

psalm challenge #89
each week, i have been studying the next psalm,
googling god so to speak
hoping to channel some of what makes the foundations
of humanity
you know, the nice side,
hopefully the nice ones.
We are all flawed by design however
even god
being all inclusive
take the bad with the good
last night,
news of dad taking ill,
i am silently crushed and not surprised
utterly powerless
as is he
He carried the dna that makes half of me
and i feel it about half the time
so events started colliding with my
psalm challenge post-planning.
Research yielded David, Immanuel, the Covenant,
the Promise God made
to sons of David
he said, hang in there, i will be there for you
This Psalm song was sung by Ethan,
(also the name of a local vt rebel Hero)
I woke up and checked out the news.
janis joplin is 70 today
the first song that came to mind
fit so well with the sentiments of this psalm
love and pain
faith and redemption
