Exuberant with Applause

So you’ll go out in joy, you’ll be led into a 
whole and complete life. The mountains 
and hills will lead the parade, bursting with song.
All the trees of the forest will join the procession,
exuberant with applause.
No more thistles, but giant sequoias, no 
more thornbushes, but stately pines—These 
events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name,
living and lasting evidence of God.
~Isaiah 55:12,13~

Decked out in the most delicate and intricate of finery, I can only imagine the praise that rose from these branches this morning. The whole earth declares His glory! Did you see it?? Praying you are seeing living and lasting evidence of His love all around you today. xo

    1. Thanks, Karen! These pictures don't even come close to capturing the glorious morning we had here. I kept thinking of the song based on Isaiah 55 and remembering Belma Vardy dancing to it - remember Belma?! I think the neighbours thought I was crazy running around the yard in my pajama pants and furry mukluks but it was totally worth it. What a joyous way to start the day :)

  2. Fantastic photos....we went to the early service at our church so I had to admire without taking photos...I just captured one before church (on fb)but we were applauding with you! You did a great job of capturing the majestic beauty Angela! Thank you for taking the time and effort and for blessing your readers!

    1. You're so welcome, Joanne! I just couldn't help but race outside quickly this morning to try and capture the glorious splendor of His majesty on display! I know the pictures hardly do it justice - wasn't it amazing? Glad you got to experience the real-life version yourself :) Much love, xo

  3. Awesome-sauce! B.E.A.U.TIFUL! Great pics. Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. You are more than welcome, Marnie! Were things as lovely down in Niagara yesterday morning...or perhaps were the backs of your eyelids all the display you needed that early? ;) Hope you had a most lovely day!

  4. Wow, these are just beautiful photos. Joanne sent me over from FB. I'm a fellow blogger from New Brunswick. You really captured the beauty of God's creation on a frosty morning. Blessings, Pamela

    1. Thanks, Pamela! Glad you could share in the beauty of our morning here in Ontario. That's one of the things I love about blogging... the way sweet people, like Joanne, are constantly sharing and encouraging and bringing us all together! May you continue to see Him at work all around you this week, may your days be beauty full!
