I love beautiful days full of sunshine, birds singing, blue skies and front porch time. But, I also love the cool, gray, rainy days that tease me to take a nap. Every season has beautiful elements. Each new day brings with it beauty, charm and that “fresh with no mistakes” gift…at least until our feet hit the floor.
This Is My Father’s World is a great reminder that the universe is God’s handiwork. His beauty is in the large and small details of creation and in life.
This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.
This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world: He shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.
We have so much to be thankful for today. Look around you. See all that beauty? Rejoice. Give thanks. Sing.
What beautiful thing are you thankful for today?
