All Creatures of our God and King

At Mom's work on Friday, the men in the shop found a Lunar Moth. Isn't it beautiful? Well, when I saw the pictures, the first thing that popped into my mind was the following song:

All Creatures of our God and King

By Francis of Assisi

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!


O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!


Things like a simple moth really make me stop and think about how much our Heavenly Father loves and cares for us. He can create something so incredibly beautiful just by speaking, and yet He still knows the number of hairs on my head. WOW!! That is absolutely incredible!!

I was thinking, too, about this tonight, and the following passage of Scripture came into my mind:

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, [shall he] not much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith? (Mt. 6:25-30).

I guess no one can remind us of that than our Lord, Jesus Christ. Have a great weekend, everyone!!!
