    Thank you for these most encouraging verses from the beloved Psalms. Each summary of the feelings stated reflected the feelings and emotions I was (am) experiencing. I have added this site to my homescreen for easy access. Just one thing: the verse quoted at the beginning is from Psalm 34 and not 35. I know that it is a typo for it is correctly noted later. Thanks again. This has been a great source of encouragement for me….Camilla
