Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
— Psalm 1:1-3 (NIV)
On June 8th, 2010 I visited the Honey Run Waterfall in Knox County, Ohio. We just came off a week of rain so I figured the water would be flowing pretty good. It was a beautiful day with barely a breeze, perfect for leaving the shutter open a couple seconds to capture the water flowing. A couple of locals stopped by with some of their friends visiting from out of town. One said he grew up in the area and used to walk the nearby road with his brother every day for 15 years, never knowing the falls were here. They heard the sound of water but never thought to open their eyes to it. Kind of brings a couple of verses to mind…
Psalm 119:18 (NIV) – Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
Ephesians 1:18-23 (NIV) – I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
