Happy the One

In Psalm One we read that the happy person is one who delights in God’s law and meditates on it day and night. (That’s some challenge!) That person is like a tree planted near running water that yields its fruit in due season and whose leaves never fade.    

Trees towering to the heavens and deeply rooted in the earth speak to me of life, prayer, stability, and fruitfulness. They remind me of what I am called to be in my life as a Benedictine Monastic.
