Rapt were my senses at this delectable view…
If so much excellence abide below,
How excellent is he that dwells on high?
Whose power and beauty by his works we know.
Sure he is goodness, wisdom, glory, light…
From: The Complete Works of Anne Bradstreet
The Father delights to give good gifts to His children. Delectable-view gifts. Gifts we enjoy with sheer delight. Gifts that are then meant to turn our thoughts to the Giver, from whom joy and delight come. For if God creates so much excellence here below, how beyond our ability to describe or to name must His own excellence be?
We notice. We delight. We praise.
“O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!”
