Below is an excerpt from the book 'Seeking a Simpler Spirit'
by Deborah DeFord.
In the natural world, every created thing has its own music:
The whisper of tall grasses.
The creak of tree branches.
The clapping of leaves and the clacking of stones.
The lap of soft waves and the thunder of breakers.
The chuckles and chatter, trills and caws, of beasts and birds.
The patter of rain and the soughing of wind.
All these are the songs God's creation lifts up to its Creator.
What is your song? Let yourself make a joyful noise before God today.
