Psalm 131, the only psalm voiced specifically by a woman, is the song of a mom carrying her child as she makes the pilgrimage to Jerusalem.


The feeling is deep trust and awestruck joy at being so nurtured by the Holy Mothering One who holds all things.

I Am a Mother (Psalm 131)











I am a mother with a sleeping child

I am a mother with a sleeping child

And I love this child

How I love this child

And there is hope for everything in this world
