In the next few blog posts I will focus upon the wonders of this beautiful world which was created by our loving Heavenly Father. The longer I live on the earth, the more I appreciate the finest craftsmanship that was used during its creation. The words of John Ritter’s hymn capture the essence of my present feelings of thankfulness for our marvelous earth:
“For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty 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.”
Just stop for a moment and look out your window at God’s great creation, whether it is tree, plant, flower, countryside, or our fellowmen. “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor” (Psalms 8:3-5). Knowing we are spiritual offspring of our God crowned with glory gives me Reasons to Rejoice.
