All Things Bright And Beautiful

Who was the first guy that looked at a cow and said,
"I think I'll drink whatever comes out of
 those things when I squeeze them?"

~~ Bill Waterson

Jonathan Livingston Seagull
(We found him!)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their 
strength; they shall mount up with wings as 
eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; 
and they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah: 4: 31
(This is a California Condor)

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

~~Cecil Frances Alexander
(Words based on Genesis 1:31.)  Cecil was a female
poet that lived from 1818-1895.  She wrote 
texts particularly for Hymns.  
Because my family always sings 
There Is A Green Hill Far Away
every year at our reunion, I thought they 
may be interested to know that she also
 penned the words to this Hymn.

The cure for anything is salt water, sweat, 
tears, or the sea.
