All Things Bright and Beautiful

I wrote as one of my One Thousand Gifts, and thought I'd share it here.
Every morning, after my homeroom students leave, I spend a few minutes preparing my heart for the day. I read a passage or two and I turn the page of my desk calendar to think on the little devotional quote.
Last Thursday was such a busy day at school, I was never able to read the quote for June 18.
That evening, while relaxing after work, I visited a fellow blog writer, Cathy, from Tales of the TCKK Family.
She posted about her favorite praise songs. It started me thinking of my fav's. I even Googled song titles so that I could remember as many as possible. One of the websites I found had 6 videos of special songs and an all time favorite of mine: All Things Bright and Beautiful. I shared my favorite title in Cathy's comments.
Here is Hayley Westenra singing it:

The next day, Friday, I had another very full day... proctoring finals, grading more papers, posting grades... and because it was fairly cool in my second floor classroom...I took advantage and cleaned until 5pm. I locked up, and was about to grab all my bags... when I saw my daily calendar.
I went over and reread June 17 and flipped to 18. Tears and laughter spontaneously flowed ~ as it was a verse to All Things Bright and Beautiful!

God, you are so cute! That was just cute and sweet.

I am Humbled by your personalized greeting!

These mysterious coincidences are what make life so fascinating! I'm also a teacher (retired) and my best friend, Mar, who is visiting me briefly from AZ is also a retired teacher. I guess we're all kindred spirits!

I came to your site via Skywatch. Congrats.

I like that big red cloud.

I am very surprised that you listen to Hayley. New Zealanders find it very hard to break into the American market.
