"This illness is to fatigue,
what a match is to a nuclear bomb.
It's an absurd mischaracterization!"

Streams of Water

(c) M Pruitt 2008

Blessed is the one whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law she meditates day and night.

She is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever she does prospers.

My paraphrase of Psalm 1: 2-3. I hope and pray that I would be this person - delighting in God's word, meditating on it day and night.

This painting - done with watercolor on Yupo reminds me of the bubbling stream I imagine feeding this tree full of life. Like God's word, continually bubbling over me, feeding me, and keeping me alive.

It's hard to feel alive with this illness. This has been a tough week physically and I must admit, I haven't felt very prosperous. But as I look back, every single day, God gives me at least one thing to do to show Him my love and to show love to the world... something valuable... something prosperous.

And so... I keep pressing on... drinking up all that fresh water bubbling past me.
