Shout for joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious.
Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds! Psalm 66:1-3 (NIV)
It seems that spring has finally sprung after what seemed like a very long winter. At last!
There are trees in blossom and bud everywhere. The birds are singing and bumble bees buzzing. The air is filled with sweet smelling flowers … it’s a riot of colour out there.
We have found ourselves looking around and appreciating the beauty of the world God has made for us. There is a sense of renewed life; new hope and new joy.
Why not take some time to get out into God’s creation this Bank holiday weekend. Tell each other what things make your heart sing and then praise God together.

…The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing. Psalm 65:13
