Let All Things Now Living

This morning a gentle rain is falling and the world outside is filled with a beautiful fog.  As i meditated, i thought about the great infinity that is God and the miracle of God's love.  It is amazing that the Creator of all things loves all creation, every living being, me included.  i thought of the miracle of the cycles of nature, being reminded by the raindrops i heard falling on the roof.  i thought of Katherine Davis' wonderful hymn that begins with the words that are the title of this post.  The lines that immediately came to mind were

His law he enforces,
The stars in their courses,
And sun in its orbit obediently shine;
The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains,
The deeps of the ocean proclaim him divine.

Davis' original words refer to God in the masculine gender, but that doesn't diminish the way her text expresses how i feel this morning.  God has wonderfully made this creation, and i rejoice that his infinite love comes to me in the quiet.

May your day be filled with wonder and joy in the majesty of creation.
