Counting the Omer: Days 27 and 28

Day 27
The themes of day 27 reminded me of psalm 37.  the psalms are a roadmap of the emotional landscape of human despair.
From Psalm 37
In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;_though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there._But the meek shall inherit the land_and delight themselves in abundant peace.
The wicked plots against the righteous_and gnashes his teeth at him,_but the Lord laughs at the wicked,_for he sees that his day is coming.
The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows_to bring down the poor and needy,_to slay those whose way is upright;_their sword shall enter their own heart,_and their bows shall be broken.
Better is the little that the righteous has_than the abundance of many wicked._For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,_but the Lord upholds the righteous.
The Lord knows the days of the blameless,_and their heritage will remain forever;_they are not put to shame in evil times;_in the days of famine they have abundance.
Turn away from evil and do good;_so shall you dwell forever._For the Lord loves justice;_he will not forsake his saints.
They are preserved forever,_but the children of the wicked shall be cut off._The righteous shall inherit the land_and dwell upon it forever.
The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,_and his tongue speaks justice.

malchut in netzach
kingdom sovereignty grounding_in creativity inspiration endurance
this last day of the week of netzach creativity inspiration endurance i am not grounded invasive thoughts deep fears hesitations apprehensions infect me.  we have too many kings there is no grounding in hegemony.  i lie in bed listless waiting for strength some days this is unendurable.  i need to work to feed myself and my son but finding work that i can do within the limits of infirmity seems impossible.  there is much to do; mostly unpaid – the work of women: home community connection.
inspiration abounds i lack the strength to bring vision to fruition.
