With a remarkably clear schedule this morning, I took up my pen (err...keyboard) and began composing a Psalm of Samson. It came out pretty nicely in the end, if a tad long. But hey, what's the surprise there?
I would really suggest this exercise to you. And it doesn't have to be about one of the judges. Just try your hand at composing a psalm in the Biblical style. You'll be surprised at what you come up with I bet.
I shared mine with the Boss Man and now he wants to read it at Morning Prayer tomorrow. He laughed and said, "See what happens when I don't give my assistant enough to do! They go and add to the canon of Scripture!" Well, I'm entirely positive I didn't do that and I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be read at MP tomorrow, but it was nice praise for a fun little exercise.
Anyway, give it a go. See what's in your creative and biblical mind.
