We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade,
 the presence of God.
 The world is crowded with him. He walks everywhere incognito.
C.S. Lewis

You shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
 the mountains and the hills will break forth
 before you into singing,
 and all the trees of the field will clap—will clap their hands.
 Isaiah 55:12

by Elece Hollis

 If I could sing like a violet, offer incense like a rose, 
Dance before God in the wind like a daffodil,
Bless God like a hyacinth does,
If I could praise.

If I could whisper prayers like the dandelions
 Trust my seeds to His wind, if I could worship
So well as these in the spring grasses,
If I could praise.

If I could twirl like a tulip
Bow like a pearl peony, follow his light like a sunflower,
Sing like a blossoming tree to my creator
If I could praise.

I would find my heart content.
