breathes and shines

It has been a wild and woolly day here. A good day, but there was enough "ack!" in there to make it a challenge. So tonight, I am humming and singing a favorite tune, trying to recover ^_^ Guess what I found tucked into a devotional written by Elisabeth Elliot? It seems she likes my heart-song, too.  Here, I will just share it with you - may it bless you ♥

"Thy bountiful care, what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain."

(from the hymn "O, Worship the King")

"That's praise. By putting into words things on earth for which we thank Him, we are training ourselves to be ever more aware of such things as we live our lives. It is easy otherwise to be oblivious of the thousand evidences of his care. Have you thought of thanking God for light and air, because in them His care breathes and shines?"
