Creation live in praise and lament. Do you hear the song? Do you live your life following the rhythm? The purpose of life is to live in God's image, and there you never live alone, you live with and in all creation.
The photo shows the maple in our garden singing it's beautiful, sparkling praise. I rise my hands and sing along.
