Psalm study

Psalm 22:1-21 are memorized. I'm over halfway there! :) And I already determined the next passage to commit to my heart: Psalm 27.

Psalm 27, verses 4, 5, 14

"One thing I have desired of the LORD,
     That will I seek:
     That I may dwell in the house of the LORD
     All the days of my life,
     To behold the beauty of the LORD,
     And to inquire in His temple.

For in the time of trouble
     He shall hide me in His pavilion;
     In the secret place of His tabernacle
     He shall hide me;
     He shall set me high upon a rock...

Wait on the LORD;
     Be of good courage,
     And He shall strengthen your heart;
     Wait, I say, on the LORD!"

Class upcoming

Just a notice to my friends here-

Next week I'm going to be starting an online class during the evenings after work. Due to that, I may not be around as much as normal.

This also explains why I've been reading and studying so much in my free time lately. I want to get as much done before the class as I can, because life's going to get a little hectic for a while. If you pray and wouldn't mind putting in a word for me to find peace and strength during the next month, that would be greatly appreciated. Work continues to be burdensome since the incident in February, and I'm still finding the days to be a challenge.

Thanks, everybody :)

String a song

Warm hands tuck the mandolin into its bed, latch the hooks of the case closed. Summer's breath upon the city came as a surprise to everyone after weekends of winter coats and snow to the north. It's now 73 degrees, but the heat of the day is slow to lift under the cool dark sky.

The tea in my mug is lukewarm. Music throbs quietly from the tin-toned speakers of my computer. Hockey games were lost, papers were read, prayers were said, and now the carpet rubs rough under my heels. The night calls me to turn off the laptop, unplug the wireless, and turn in to sleep. Yet, my mind lingers, my heart stubbornly refuses to set the body into motion. I'm seated, content.

The longer I wait, the harder it's going to be when my clock blares the numbers 7:10 at me. But, just like in the morning, I've settled into the setting over the course of the evening, and I just got cozy!
