A cold, quiet, morning. No wind. And 32 degrees. What did I find? Frost! Have to admit, this morning I didn't open my eyes and rush outside. But after a few moments, I got up to see what I would see and listen for the Lord.

Always liked in Genesis where it says in Genesis 3:8
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day...

Unfortunately, the rest of the verse is where Adam and Eve hid from God because they'd just sinned. And so goes the rest of us.

But God wasn't finished with them, or us. His mercy is new every morning. Would it have been different if Adam and Eve and had thrown themselves on God's mercy, confessing what they had done, instead of pointing fingers?

I love the little crystals of ice forming on the plants, seeming to form out of nothing. You can't beat God's handiwork.

TO the west, clouds and trees catch light from the rising sun.
The rich glow looks so warm and cheery. Creation rejoicing a new day has begun. A day closer to its deliverance from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Romans 8:18-25 (King James Version)

18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Joy to the World
1.Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King; Let every heart prepare Him
room, And heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing And heaven and heaven and nature sing.

Go singing into the world. Proclaiming the Lord is come and coming.
