A Psalm For Refuge

I wrote a psalm . My first psalm ever. I thought psalm writers had all died and gone to heaven. 🤷🏽‍♀️ I never knew I could be one of them. Psalmists don’t usually know they’re psalmists until they lamented and sorrowed about something mighty weighty. This was me after we lost our mother in law…
