And who could ask for anything more than to
enjoy the warmest friendships on a day like today?
The Arboretum was fairly bursting today with beauty.
All I can say is, thank You to God for the displays we see on
this earth in the glory of His creation.
What a wonderful God!
Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing.
Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast.*
*Written by German Jesuits as Schönster Herr Jesu in the 17th Century
