Wordless Poetry

There is something almost poetic about a clear summer sky above a canopy of green trees,isn't there?A sight very much like this arrested me and captured my eyes and made me smile in delight and wonder upon our walk through the complex very early this morning.It's medium is not words,but color,and texture and form,splashed around this part of our world,upon this planet we call earth.It caused praise to flow forth to the One who created such lovliness for us to enjoy.


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.

From the hymn

"For the Beauty of the Earth"

by Folliot S. Pierpoint

Dear Sharon,

I join you in praising the Lord and lifting up your dear friend.

I, too, become so touched by the simple beauty and magesty of a green tree fashioned by God. I care for my gardens every day, but remain truly amazed at the miracle of life so abundant in so many places. God is great in all aspects.

Oh, sometimes there is just not enough words to speak back to the creator in praise of HIS creation!
