When I studied 94 briefly,
it is certainly not a light subject.
A Prayer to have the wrongs righted. By God.
So when I thought of music, this tune came to mind.
Found this link on you tube by Anthony Pepitone.
Heaven's Pearls, sung by the songwriter Byron Isaacs and Amy Helm and her band et al.
We saw Amy and Byron last weekend in Burlington.
Still cannot quite believe it. So after we saw them I googled Byron because I was paranoid I spelled his name wrong when I blogged. I have been known to spell my name wrong when tired.
Byron wrote this song which was good to clarify in my mind. I thought it was some ancient Appalachian hills music. When times are tough it is good to remind yourself
there will be a pearl at the end of the trials. You do not need to be vengeful,
God will deal with it for you.
It is all part of having faith,

note: it was easier to borrow from the internet this whole psalm so you can read it.

|13||that thou mayest give him rest from the days of
|14||For the LORD will not cast off
|15||But judgment shall return unto righteousness:|
|16||Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?|
|17||Unless the LORD had been
|18||When I said, My foot slippeth;|
|19||In the multitude of my thoughts within me|
|20||Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with
|21||They gather themselves together against the soul of
