There is a psalm imbedded in part of Israel’s history, which begins with the major theme. We must keep this theme in mind to see the power of it. “I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies” (2 Sam. 22:4).
When I was a young girl at home, many told me that my mother had written poetry when she was younger, but I never saw much of it. After her marriage to my father, her life was filled with four children and a farm. Farm life was never easy for any of us.
Move from that thought to the present, where our son-in-law constantly researches his family tree and our daughter’s too. Recently he unearthed a poem my mother had written as an obituary for her mother’s sister’s husband, who died in a train accident in Lubbock, TX. Finding this poem online was truly amazing.
