The Book of Psalms is a collection of songs for God’s people. They are filled with beautiful poetry that expresses the depths of the human heart. From raging pain and questioning to bursting praise and thanksgiving, the Psalms affirm that it is good to pour out our hearts before our loving God for in Him is our help, security and comfort.
In Psalm 42, the author expresses intense thirst for God in a land of friendlessness and torment. His memory of God’s love and the joy of being with God’s people keeps His hope alive. Verse 42:8 captures the theme—His song will be with me in the night.
The Psalmist goes back and forth in his agony—from crying out to God to speaking to his own soul. When he says, “Why are you cast down, O my soul?” he is not saying to God, “O God, could you please tell me why I am so down?”… but, he is saying to his own soul, “My soul, why are you down? Remember all the good times? Remember God. Hope in Him.”
We must speak truth to our own souls. The Psalmist hopes in God when life painfully unravels around him. (1 Peter 1:13b)

Welcome to Shale Fragments, a collection of writings and art for individual and group use!
Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.
As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
