The day is full of color, the color of summer. Blue sky, white clouds, green trees, rainbow flowers. July is beauty in so many ways.
A friend commented on her garden, her a new farm girl this year with a barn and animals and vegetables to tend. The season for growing is good, “everyday more and more” she said.
The earth teaches us God’s law of sowing and reaping. One seed produces many more seeds. Small efforts bring forth a larger harvest. Be careful what you sow, for you shall reap much more.
The earth shows the handiwork of God. Creation shouts His glory. The trees clap their hands, and the birds sign His praises.
An old hymn, by John Rutter, from a favored book rings this melody . . .
For the beauty of the earth, for the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth over and around us lies,
For the beauty of each hour of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flow’r, sun and moon, and stars of light
Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.
