The Lord is my editor
whom I shal trust.
He maketh me to
reach for my pen.
He feedeth me with ideas
that I shall write down
for His name's sake.
He leadeth me to the right markets
and restoreth my self-belief.
He fills my pen with blessings
that I can share
and poems that I can write.
Surely his goodness and mercy
will guide my hand always.
And I shal write in the
name of the Lord forever.

Beanie -- congratulations on your award. This is a cleverly crafted adaptation of the original prayer, in that it rouses smiles of recognition and has humorous moments becaue of your twists on the usual phrases -- yet your obvious sincerity kept in from slipping into parody. Lovely, nice touches throughout.

Again, congrats,
