A few days ago, as I walked around our neighborhood, I made a special effort to appreciate the beauty of a spring morning. In particular, I paid attention to the sounds. Though no expert on birds, I identifed the cooing of morning doves, the sassy chirp of sparrows, the sharp caw of a crow. They blended together to make a lovely symphony, complete with high and low notes.
It reminded me of a Primary song from many years ago.
MY HEAVENLY FATHER LOVES ME
"Whenever I hear the sound of a bird,
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face,
Or the wind as ir rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me."
So, for today, I am grateful for this beautiful world Heavenly Father created for me, for all of us.
