The pastures of the wilderness overflow,

the hills gird themselves with joy,

the meadows clothe themselves with flocks,

the valleys deck themselves with grain,

they shout and sing together for joy. (Psalm 65:12–13)

So many of the psalms we’ve seen over the past few weeks were written during times of distress and turmoil. But not today. Today, the psalmist sings out about the abundance of God. Today, the psalmist sings out about the harvest of plenty. Today, the psalmist belts our her song about the rich gifts of creation, reminding herself and her community that God is good. So today, when we look around at the bounteous beauty of God’s good earth, let us join our hearts with the psalmist in overflowing gratitude.                – rc
