A David For David

Hailing from the tribe of Judah
King David was both a warrior and a poet
Who wrote the book of Psalms
His pen flowed with beautiful verses

King David was a man after God's own heart
When he slew Goliath that set him apart
He was annointed to be Israel's King
Though the lust in his heart caused him to sin

Saul envied him, and wanted to hurt him
But he was divinely protected anywhere he fled
From his line would come the King of Kings
Who  gave us salvation and healing
 *-----------------------------------------------*                          
David,  as you take this time to care for your wife
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Wishing  all the best  as she convalesces.
