From today’s Old Testament reading, which is the account of creation: ‘And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the cattle according to their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good’.

Let us rejoice in creation, in all seasons of the year, looking through and beyond to the Creator, who has done all things in beauty and harmony. May God bless you this day.
