"Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose hope is in the Lord."
According to the first reading from Jeremiah and Psalm 1, the one who trusts in the Lord is like a tree planted beside the waters; this tree stretches out its roots to the stream..."
I love the image of the tree reaching out its roots to the living water; its leaves stay green and it bears fruit. Lord, you have chosen us that we may bear fruit. May we be rooted in You.
