“Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord.” ~ Psalm 96:12 -13a

Creation sings God’s praise when our voices are silent!

If we are awake and paying attention, we will notice the glorious brushstrokes of our Creator all around us (and even within us).

Yet we often allow our worries to discolor what we see, our fears to dampen the moments of grace we might otherwise trust.

The beauty of God’s handiwork is always near at hand, calling us to open our ears and our hearts to the song of joy heard among the trees of the forest.
