This is My Father’s World April 7, 2010

Posted by Ventura Dreamer in Blogroll.

Easter morning tulipsI can’t let this morning go by without feeling and singing praises to The Creator for the beauty of this spring day.  The birds are singing, the koi are floating among the every-increasing waterlily pads, the tulips, irises, orchids, jasmine, and citrus blossoms are in bloom!  Over the past half hour, gusts of wind have begun to blow from the east – Santa Anas are going to bring warm weather to the coast.  And one more thing: I saw the first bee in the yard this morning!

Psalm 150 doesn’t need to remind me: Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord!  I have an old hymn floating through my head as I sit on the backporch and enjoy the sights, sounds, and scents of the morning.

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.

This is my Father’s world.
O let me ne’er forget
that though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world:
why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad!
