Sharing the joy

Psalm 9:1-2:  "I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.  I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High" (NIV).

Remember catching fireflies in jars?  Taking a nature walk?  Watching a huge thunderstorm roll in?  Hearing the bubbling of a stream you could not see?  God's creation speaks of His majesty and our hearts learn to sing of His praise.

In an age when a click of a finger can open up hours of media entertainment for our children, it can be tempting to tune out.  Pulling away from the television and taking your children on a walk may put you behind on housework, but it can prepare them to praise the Most High! 

Take the time to share the joy of nature with your children, and tell them of His wonders.
