A Psalm by K

As you know, I'm still stuck in K's room cleaning and redecorating. Today, one task was to clean off the old bulletin boards that will be going to L's room and putting some of in up on the new bulletin board. One thing she had posted was a psalm she wrote for CBS last year. I read it again and was amazed by her beautiful use of metaphor (it brought a tear to this former English teacher's eye) as well as the simplicity, wisdom, succinctness, and understanding of a 7-year-old.

A Psalm
by K

My Lord, My God,
You have left my sins behind;
You have also taken Satan and put him behind,
But you raise me up so high,
I land near the front.
