I love the Lord and I love His creation. I have had to work at times to give credit where credit is due. I remind myself often that this amazing place has been created by His hand, by His physical law. The Lord blessed Joseph and his land, and I can imagine the tear at the corner of his eye, shed for the beauty of it, the glory in it, and the gratitude for such an expression of love.
13 Of Joseph he said,
“ Blessed of the Lord be his land,
With the choice things of heaven, with the dew,
And from the deep lying beneath,
14 And with the choice yield of the sun,
And with the choice produce of the months.
15 “And with the best things of the ancient mountains,
And with the choice things of the everlasting hills,
16 And with the choice things of the earth and its fullness,
And the favor of Him who dwelt in the bush.
Let it come to the head of Joseph,
And to the crown of the head of the one distinguished among his brothers.
