Discussion for Psalms 1

  • Cleveland W. Gibson
    I am a writer and took more than a look at the psalms. I edit as well and I found in the psalms 'thing' were repeated. That does not make them wrong/ bad. I have learned other writers were inspired to write, perhaps 'add' in their thoughts. It is a salute to the original writer of the psalms.I've tried my hand at turning psalm 1 into a poem. It came out well. Church Newsletter next? Who knows?
