Edited March 26, 2019: Apologies for the incorrect link below. The hymn has been updated below.

As spring bursts forth in our neck of the woods. I struck by the resounding joy that fills the new life around me.

On Saturday, I planted some mail-order, shade-loving plants, and already they’re happy and setting in, ready to grow.

Another of my favorite hymns is “For the beauty of the earth.” Interestingly, I first heard my favorite version in the movie, Little Women. Here’s a link to the snippet from the movie.

Enjoy it now. ❤
