this is my father’s world

The seasons are changing again.  Reese & I started kindergarten this week.  We are officially homeschoolers now – if you’re interesting in seeing what we’re up to, check it out here.  This week we’re studying creation, and as part of that, been memorizing the hymn My Father’s World.  It’s good for my heart to have been singing this gentle reminder lately:

This is my Father’s world.  O let me ne’er forget that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.  This is my Father’s world, why should my heart be sad?  The Lord is King, let the heavens ring;  God reigns, let the earth be glad!
