Since Love Came Down
Some Christmas thoughts.

Lamentations finalist in poetry contest
I recently wrote poems for the five chapters of Lamentations. Here are excerpts of the first several stanzas for each of those poems.

Psalm 150
Let everything with breath praise the LORD!

Psalm 139 finalist in poetry contest
O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You understand my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down; You are aware of all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, You know . . . . Psalm 139

Psalm 115 finalist in poetry contest
Both of my most recent poems, Psalm 114 and Psalm 115, have alternating lines of 9 and 8 syllables; yet each of them forces the reader to read the poems with different cadences and rhythms. 35 more to go before I complete all 150 Psalms. Praise God!

Psalm 114
When Israel departed from Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue, Judah became God’s sanctuary, and Israel His dominion. The sea observed and fled; the Jordan turned back; the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. Ps 114

Psalm 111
Praise the Lord. I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds . . . . Psalm 111:1-3

Psalm 107 finalist in poetry contest
I finished writing my poem, Psalm 106, nearly 4 months ago. And in that span of time, I didn't write a thing . . . until around Easter. I really liked the repetition I found in Psalm 107: the falling away of God's people and returning again once more.

Dialogues first in poetry contest
This is a quick overview of some of the dialogues between Jesus and other characters in the Easter story.
