Today is St David’s day!
As many celebrate, seems fitting to remember another St David.
This Monday … I opened a book to continue with my reading and began to read
How a man saved a woman’s life who had let her THOUGHTS take over as she lie in a hospital bed organising her last goodbyes When he took charge as she lie there and read the following written by St David.
Was it possible that by repeatedly suggesting her life was not over, that she was strong, healthy and still had a wonderful life to live could help her recover Life?
Yes We Can … As the story continued the children, the husband and everyone was relieved she hadn’t lost hope, faith and the will to live had returned.
“The seeds we plant today of Powerful Thoughts to trample on the weeds that choke the Essence of Life.” Parker
In no way I am suggesting that you convert to a specific religion but ask you to read this as if it were a POEM.

1 Praise the Lord,(A) my soul;(B)
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.(C)
2 Praise the Lord,(D) my soul,
and forget not(E) all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins(F)
and heals(G) all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life(H) from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,(I)
5 who satisfies(J) your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed(K) like the eagle’s.(L)
7 He made known(O) his ways(P) to Moses,
his deeds(Q) to the people of Israel:
8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,(R)
slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;(S)
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve(T)
or repay us according to our iniquities.
13 As a father has compassion(X) on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,(Y)
he remembers that we are dust.(Z)
15 The life of mortals is like grass,(AA)
they flourish like a flower(AB) of the field;
16 the wind blows(AC) over it and it is gone,
and its place(AD) remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children(AE)—
18 with those who keep his covenant(AF)
and remember(AG) to obey his precepts.(AH)
Praise the Lord, my soul.(AR)
