684. God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.  ~Author unknown, commonly attributed to Martin Luther

Morning is the best
 of all times in the garden.
The sun is not yet hot.  
Sweet vapors rise from the earth.
Night dew clings to the soil 
and makes plants glisten.
Birds call to one another.  
Bees are already at work.
~William Longgood

Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it’s a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.
~Pueblo Blessing

You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. ~Isaiah 55:12   ✝

  1. Whoever said it, I love it. Nature is God’s visible voice, and would that every person living would respond with thanksgiving. There would be no pollution, no decay, but then I am going back in time for we would be in the Garden of Eden before sin entered.

    • Oh I love the way you put that Marie. Nature is indeed the Lord visible voice. I too wish that everyone would
      respond with gratitude and thanksgiving. Oh wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to go back to the Garden of Eden!!!! This time of year in my yard, it grows easier and easier to envision what that would look like. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
