My Mother-in-law planted this glorious Taiwan Cherry tree in her yard from a seedling over 40 years ago. Each winter, about this time, it bursts forth in radiant pink blooms. This year it is especially beautiful, and the images I took can’t capture its exquisite beauty. Today the tree exceeds 40 feet. Admiring God’s handiwork brought to my mind a hymn that I loved from my childhood:
This Is My Father’s World
This is my Father’s world, And to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings The music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought…

Enjoy your Sunday!
