all things bright and beautiful...

Today is the 40TH anniversary of Earth Day. What change are you making today in your carbon footprint? Today we are living with less artificial light and using the natural light to guide our way. My little friend that spends the day with Henry and I is sharing the "g" love. I am using g diapers on him. Thanks to Mother Nature we have a nice gentle rain to water the garden.
Think about our future generations and leaving them a healthier planet than the one we currently live in. I take pride in my little environmentalists. Last week when we were at Mimi's, Cameron helped Mimi recycle her trash. He hung a back by the back door and had I left the car seats with Uncle Randy while we were at Jon's service he would have taken Cameron to the Topeka recycle. The bag came home with us Thursday night.

All day today I have been humming a favorite hymn. Many of you know this and I know the Deacon and Mimi know it because I have heard you hum it to!

"All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all."

I only shared the first verse but it is a well loved Anglican hymn and I feel it is most appropriate to celebrate Earth Day!

  1. Yes -- a belated happy earth day to you. I've been playing in the dirt filled with worms lately too. My garden is my way of making the world a little better and brighter -- growing food and enjoying its prettiness.

    I hope your days are slowly getting a bit brighter. I've been thinking of you.
