The Creek

 

The creek swirled and gurgled by Annabeth’s toes as she sat on a rock by the water’s edge. The shade of several ancient oaks that grew around the bend of the creek cooled her from the afternoon sun. Sometimes a leaf floated by. Sometimes a water bug scooted across the bend. Sometimes circles of ripples caught her attention. Was it a fish—or a turtle—hiding beneath the surface of the murky water? Annabeth could spend hours sitting here, thinking, watching the water and listening to the crows caw for attention in the woods beyond.

But today she could not stay any longer. She had to get back to the house and finish her homework. She stood up and looked up through the tops of the trees. The leaves were bright green, but they looked black as they were silhouetted against the sun. She hopped from the rock to the boggy ground. The marsh grass tickled her feet.

She sat down once more to put her shoes on for the walk home. As she started her trip back, she turned around to view the scene once more. Trees by the water. It reminded her of Psalm 1. “And in his law doth he meditate day and night.” Yes, it was good to spend time just thinking—thinking about such things.

     “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.”

Psalm 1:1-4
