1Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
This is one of my favourite Psalms in the Bible so it was fitting to paint it to mark my return after a long break from my brushes! When I painted this tree I didn’t put any fruits on it. I was meditating on the portion that says “fruit in season”. I didn’t think my recovery season was fruitful at all. However, there’s a time for everything and even in that, there’s a purpose… Even if I didn’t have any visible fruits to show during those long weeks, it was a season of growth and connection in our family. It wasn’t easy but I’m still thankful for that.
Have a wonderful week!
