During our Morning Time this spring, we have been singing the hymn "This Is My Father's World." As we researched the background to this hymn, we learned of Maltbie D. Babcock, a respected Presbyterian minister of the late 1800's who loved to be outdoors. As he went out for his frequent walks near their upstate New York home, he would say to his wife, “I am going out to see my Father’s world.”
We have been enjoying our Father's world...
- We planted a weeping willow tree (named Wilma) in our backyard.
- We observed these delicate flowers.
