Highlights from Psalm 1-41

In January I did a little project called 30 Days of Psalms 1-41. I read the first book of Psalms 30 days in a row. It was WONDERFUL. Some of these were already favorite-favorites. Others became precious to me throughout the month. I was just going to do a "top ten" list but that would be ridiculous.
