I've always loved trees. They provide shade in the heat of summer, give birds a home, and some of them have tasty fruit hanging from their branches. I never was a good tree climber when I was a kid, mostly because there weren't many trees in our yard that I could climb without using a ladder to reach the first branch. But there was an overgrown thatch of bushes under some trees in the back yard, and I played house in those bushes all summer long.
Psalm 1 is a heart-warming promise to me. God says that when I delight in His Word and meditate on it, He'll make me like a tree...strong, comforting, able to give shelter to others. Let me be God's happy tree!
