350. But I always think the best way to know God is to love many things. ~Vincent Van Gogh

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Image

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

Image

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

Image

The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;

Image

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

Image

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
We gather every day;–

Image

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
~Cecil Frances Alexander

Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens, you who have done great things. Who is like you, God? ~Psalm 71:19 ✝

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace!

    • Thanks, missy! Maybe I should call the Fire Department. Somebody else posted the poem and I just couldn’t help but repost it along with some illustrations. Hope you’ve had a good day. Love, Natalie 🙂
