For The Beauty Of The Earth

On this first day of October,I invite you come for a walk with me through the English Gardens in Winnipeg,Manitoba.
I invite you to enjoy the scenes as you think on the words of the song,For The Beauty Of The Earth.

For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies


For the love which from our birth,Over and around us lies


Lord of all, to thee we raise, This our joyful hymn of praise


For the beauty of the hour, Of the day and of the night
Indigo Bunting 

Hill and vale and tree and flower, Sun and moon and stars of light


Lord of all, to thee we raise, This our joyful hymn of praise


For the joy of human love, Brother, sister, parent, child

 Friends on earth and friends above, For all gentle thoughts and mild


For each perfect gift of thine, To our race so freely given


Graces human and divine, Flow'rs of earth and buds of heav'n


Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our joyful hymn, our joyful hymn of praise


Thanks for joining me on this walk. May you feel refreshed and blessed as you ponder the love which God is showering on you and me.

  1. As soon as I read English Gardens, I got goosebumps! And so wonderful to pair these with this wonderful hymn, one of my favorites! Let's see now...maybe I can identify some of them. Water Lotus, Bee Balm, zinnia, not sure, rose, not sure, hibiscus and dragonfly. Gorgeous dragonfly, too! Beautiful tour!
