firmly planted


for reasons i really don't know or understand, i have determined that the mission statement for my new company is going to be psalm one.

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

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

i have long loved the psalm, but just recently it came to me that this psalm is my life's goal. to be FIRMLY PLANTED in whatever i do. it also occurred to me that it's a good life goal for anybody. so, i have decided to use it as an underlying scripture for the new company.

yesterday, i got some new labels i made in the mail. i was a little excited to see that i still like them. by months' end, i should have a small website, new business cards, and a cool little 'announcement' mailer and gift. all of these things done, for a purpose that i don't know yet :)) he he. very seriously silly.

however, it would not be the first time that the Lord worked in that way for me, creatively speaking. i thought up and used the name of my LAST company for a couple of years before the Lord told me what it meant. so, i'm operating on trust that it does probably mean something.

in the meantime, i am 100% sure that my desire to be FIRMLY PLANTED comes from God. as i was reading this morning about the Lord's deliverance of the people from Egypt, another such image came to mind:

You will bring them in and plant them on your own mountain –
the place, O Lord, reserved for your own dwelling,
the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hands have established.
The Lord will reign forever and ever!

who wants to come live in my neighborhood with me?!!
happy tuesday, everyone.
