Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy.
--Psalm 96:12 New International Version (NIV)
My Father, may I have an appreciation of the wonderful creations of the earth. Give me a discriminating eye, that I may know the precious things that you are growing; and throughout my life may I love the beautiful, and choose that which will make my life worthy of growth. Amen.
