Speaking of birds …

Do you know why birds sing just before dawn? Scientists believe it’s to tell their mates that they made it through the night, as a way of saying, “I’m still here.” Maybe that’s why we sing, too, why we create art—as a way of saying, “I made it. I’m still here.”

All creation has one purpose, one calling, to praise and worship God.

Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning
our song shall rise to Thee
