The Earth and Its Fullness Thereof...

Brantley's other set of grandparents farm on the shores of the Bay of Fundy...
I admit, though rural Ontario is stunning in Autumn,
Nova Scotia, you win! 
although, much like here 
the sumac seems to be the main color torch in autumnal vistas

The earth, it is the Lord's
Its grand fullness thereof
Spills like a fount from hills and rills
In testaments of Love

Love's deathless cadence rings
From springs of Living Word
While earth and its fullness thereof
Spills mercies undeterred

Faith sets its sight upon
What eye cannot attest
The earth and its fullness thereof 
Makes God's might manifest

Then praise the Lord of hosts
For all that we behold 
Is begotten, not of our boast
But from the God of old

...the earth, it is the Lord's
Its awe-and-wonder-trove
Runs our visage through and through
With testaments of love

The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; 
the world, and they that dwell therein.

So much 'fulness of earth' to delight in this time of year...
more about this later 'kay?
Off to pick/pic and pull the final gifts of fresh fall fullness!
Parsley, zinnia seeds, apples, cabbage, squash!
Don't those words set a rainbow of delight in thought's panorama?!

More captivating 'fulness thereof' pics here on my friend Monica's  latest post.


  1. Sweet! How old is he? I have a great-nephew about that size. He just turned one.

    “The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof;
    the world, and they that dwell therein.

    So good to remember this!
