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

God awakens me in the morning to the chirping of the chick-a-dee. The dandelion sun beams through the sheerness of my drapes and colors my room with the sweetness of God’s light.
I step outside gather my senses, and embrace each image of God’s awesome creation. The trees are crisp, green, and full of life. They are plentiful and create a silhouette against the robin-egg sky.
As my car putters down a windy back road, I experience the brilliance of His handiwork. The petunias and the begonias radiantly freckle the fertile ground. My soul delights in the bold, the delicate, and the dramatic design of this lush composition. Fresh forms of sculpted shapes reveal His passion for the earth.
A clear vision of God's personality is expressed by the painted strokes of His genius. I see the nature of His being, His wisdom, His love manifested and scattered among the earth. God's splendor, glory, and divine knowledge are revealed by this attention, detail, and purpose for all living things. By exhibiting how much He cares for even the smallest particle of nature, we can be assured how much He cares for us. Hallelujah!
A celebration of life is landscaped in vibrant hue and texture –each second, each minute, each hour—His gift and our joy! A Masterpiece!
Creator of all things, fill me abundantly with the refreshing vigor of Your nature. I am filled with peace and joy when I delight in Your all-inspiring canvas. Amen!
