His Handywork!

From Octavius Winslow (1808-1878)

The spiritual mind, fond of soaring through nature
in quest of new proofs of God's existence, and fresh
emblems of His wisdom, power and goodness, exults in
the thought that it is his Father's domain he treads!
He feels that God, his God, is there. 

And the sweet consciousness of His all pervading
presence, and the impress of His great perfections
which everywhere meets his eye, overwhelm his
renewed soul with wonder, love, and praise. 

O the delight of looking abroad upon nature,
under a sense of pardoning, filial love in the soul
when enabled to exclaim, "this God is my God!" 

Psalm 19:1
 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”
