Joy to the world! The Lord is come: let earth receive her king;
Let every heart prepare him room, and heaven and nature sing.
With “Joy to the world” in my heart and mind, I’m looking each of these twelve days of Christmas for the beauty and wonder in God’s world, for instances of the joy that runs through all of creation.
This reminder that the moon, other planets, other solar systems and galaxies, are all ordered so that each part of the universe – including our little corner of the world -- has a place enhanced the joy to be experienced under a bright blue sky.
“O ye sun and moon, bless ye the Lord.” (Canticle 1, The Book of Common Prayer)
