Nature Sings


Early yesterday


Joy to the world
The lord had come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing


Four hours later.....


When first I looked at this second photo, I felt in my heart that the flower was singing, clearly proclaiming God's glories. The words of the well known carol above came to mind. At CHRISTmas we remember afresh the host of angels who appeared to the shepherds, praising God, "Glory to God in heaven, and peace on earth to all whom God favours".
We also recall the wise men who saw his star in the east and came to worship Jesus. The night sky, the day sky, the angels and even the little zinnia flower in my garden "sing" and proclaim God's glory if we will but observe and listen with our hearts.

These two photos are so beautiful, I was in the Gold coast when I saw lots of water lilies. Your profile photo reminds me of when I visited Gold coast.

Nature certainly sings at your place! It's wonderful to remember the real reason of the season amongst all the busyness. xo

Wow. Beautiful images. I love that you found something beautiful and re-visited it again hours later to see it change. I haven't thought about doing this before. It's amazing to me how it transformed to something even prettier in such a short time. Lovely images, and a lovely message to go with it. Thank you for sharing!

Beautiful post Karen. And that Zinnea is so stunning.
I love the way it bursts forth with those tiny yellow "flowers" and then more pink petals unfold... it IS rather like it's singing.

Hi Pieces of Sunshine,

RYC, What a vulnerable, tender image of God you just said... gives us choice, loves ununconditionally and yet still desires to be our first love. How humble and amazing that is!

Thanks for stopping by. Merry Christmas.

Such joyful flowers!

Thank you for your comment. I could not call them anything else except 'meadow flowers', since they naturally grow in European meadows and are considered a weed here.

Happy Christmas!
