Twenty degrees! (That’s room temperature for those of you living in the country that doesn’t use Celsius.) Yesterday the sun was shining! I opened the windows! I went out without a jacket!
I had work to do, but the forest paths called to me.
The snow was gone. The birds were singing! The trees were rustling! The scent of pine and fir and cedar is starting to return.
When through the woods and forest glades I wander
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
and see the brook and feel the gentle breeze,
then sings my souls, my Saviour God, to Thee,
“How great Thou art!”
