What a beautiful morning! The weekend rains left all the vegetation bright green. The sunlight is beaming through the clear air. A slight breeze is blowing and the rays of the sun are beaming down through the trees and bringing with them a comforting warmth.
Today could end up being another scorching day of relentless heat, but right now the weather is wonderful. In those kind of mornings, it is so easy to find inspiration, to feel that all is well, and to know that God is ever watching over us. It is important to find this times when all seems right and we can praise God for the beauty of the earth. I think of the wonderful hymn:
For the beauty of the earth; For the glory of the skies, For the love which from our birth over and around us lies: Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.
For the beauty of each hour of the day and of the night, Hill and vale and tree and flower, Sun and moon and stars of light: Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hyen of grateful praise.
For the joy of human love, Brother, sister, parent, child, friends of earth, and friends above, For all gentle thoughts and mild: Lord of all to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.
For each perfect gift of thine to our race so freely given, Graces human and divine, Flowers of earth and buds of heaven: Lord of all to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise,
