Once we are all on a blanket, I open my bible and read from God's Word.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
The girls begin to sketch in their books, drawing trees planted by streams of water.
And we take some time to consider the passage together.
What kind of fruit would be on that tree?
How can we be like that tree?
What fruit would grow on us?
What does God promise us?
And we continue drawing.
It seems so appropriate to me that as we began this task of drawing our Psalms that Psalm One would remind us the value of time spent meditating on God's Word.
K finishes first and we talk and play.
T takes another 15 minutes, at least. It appears that her streams of water have developed into waterfalls pouring down the page.
May the presence and Word of God be so plentiful in our lives as well!
