Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice!
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!
Let the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for he is coming!
– Psalm 96:11-13
I went out to the forest to find a quiet place to contemplate what the Lord was doing in my life. It was a day of great frustration for me and I needed to be alone with my paints to think clearly. As I studied the nature around me I saw the colors as though they were music. The leaves sang to God with their beauty just by doing what they were designed to do. I am reminded how God makes us unique. I believe one of the greatest ways to bring God Glory is just to be yourself. So show your colors like these leaves and shine.
