This is a favorite scripture of mine which comes to mind particularly during this Easter season, especially as the waters are rushing down hills and mountains into the lakes and rivers, and as spring is trying to break forth with her verdant cape of green and her multi-colored jewels bedecking blossoming trees and flower stalks.
I find nature a place to praise God and sing my alleluias, as well as in our Chapel during this octave of Easter. Our Morning and Evening Prayer begin with a solemn intonation followed by one of my favorite Easter hymns, and there are many! Each psalm has an antiphon bespeaking the great paschal mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection! Death begets life, despair is turned to hope, the impossible becomes possible, and sorrow is turned to joy. He is risen, alleluia! Let us indeed be Easter people!
