God is serious business, take him seriously;
he's put the earth in place and it's not moving.
So let Heaven rejoice, let Earth be jubilant,
and pass the word among the nations, "God reigns!"
Let Ocean, all teeming with life, bellow,
let Field and all its creatures shake the rafters;
Then the trees in the forest will add their applause
to all who are pleased and present before God
he's on his way to set things right!

1 Chronicles 16:30-33 The Message

Good Morning Ladies,

I was looking for a different scripture all together that had to do with trees until I discovered it was really a forest. So it will have to wait for round 3 and the letter F.

Anyway, I don't usually read the Message, but I thought this translation was rather sweet: Fish bellowing, animals shaking rafters, and trees applauding. I often wonder when the Lord comes back will all the animals and all creation bow in honor of Him? They did in Aslan's world.
Just little thoughts...
Have a wonderful day and I hope that whatever you do or where ever you go nature cries out around you about our Glorious Savior and LORD.

Cori, your thoughts are beautiful as always! And I wonder, too, if nature will bow down at our Lord's return. I can't wait to find out!

I hope you have a very blessed Friday!

I love the vintage lace pictured below. So, so lovely!

In His Love,

I'm late, I'm late. Yes, everything in my garden is shouting the Glory of God. And He certainly does reign. Once again, He saved PFC Ryan! It is quite a story, and my boy is receiving the Army Commendation Medal! See you at the party tomorrow! **blows kisses** Deborah
