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 our hearts and minds, I invite you to join me in looking each of these twelve days for instances of the joy that runs through all of creation, especially through experiencing the beauty and wonder of God’s world.
“I know every bird in the sky, and the creatures of the fields are in my sight.” (Psalm 50:11)
Several cardinals have brought color to our neighborhood the past few days. This morning while fresh snow was falling they were especially lovely.
Joy to the world! The Savior reigns; let us our songs employ, while fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains, repeat the sounding joy.
