River of Delights

river of delightsHow priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
    People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
    you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
    in your light we see light. Ps 36:7-9


This picture was given to me by a Cambodia friend, Keo Vuthy. One of the reasons I meditate is to step away from the habit of seeing what is unfinished, what needs to be fixed and what is irritating me. Am I alone in this? I just see more quickly what needs work than what needs celebration.

I think sometimes that this is just the way we are. It is helpful to realize that needs work. However, don’t we also need to know what right?

How do you remind yourself of the “river of delights” God offers to each of us?
