On this bright new morning, a robin greets the sun from her favorite fencepost.
Two bucks, most likely two year old twins...
now spar, preparing to be rivals.
A juvenile purple finch perches on the supplejack,
and a tufted titmouse is silhouetted against an orange sky.
They all give praise to their Maker, doing what He created them to do.
Years ago, we used to sing a children's song in church,
one that I believe holds true for God's children of any age:
The birds upon the treetops sing their song;
The angels chant their chorus all day long;
The flowers in the garden blend their hue,
So why shouldn't I, why shouldn't you praise Him, too?
If you'd like to see a very cute video of a little girl singing this,
