Word-Filled Wednesday: Tree

Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted each week by the lovely Amy Deanne at her blog.

This is one of my favorite psalms, and I think this picture shows it beautifully.


Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
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.
Psalm 1

  1. Love this psalm, that love that picture. Isn't that how we all sometimes get "unplanted," though? First we walk in the counsel of the wicked. Then we stand. And then we decide to sit for a while...
