The visible teaches of the Invisible

“For the invisible things of him…

…from the creation of the world…

…are clearly seen…

…being understood by the things that are made…


…even his eternal power and Godhead…Romans 1:20a.

'Tis the last rose of summer...

(All photos except the last two are from the morguefile.)

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.

This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world: He shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world. O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world: the battle is not done:
Jesus Who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and Heav’n be one.

~ Maltbie D. Babcock, 1901

  1. You know I have to say I’m learning more and more about all kinds of religions and I’m enjoying what I read. It always gives me something to think about. What wonderful pictures. They depict the words just perfectly. 🙂 Aloha

  2. What a beautiful post today Barbara! The pictures AND the song. Dr. John reminded me this morning that JOY is what Jesus wants us to have — so today I wish you JOY!
