David (Psalm 1)

“Blessed are they who hope in the Lord, they are like trees planted near running waters.”

Reflection:
It is safe to assume that everyone understands how essential water is to life. So, too, hope . . . that tenacious gift that will simply not let us give up.

Prayer:
Lord God, give us the comfort and joy of those trees planted by running waters. They need never fear death or drought.
