Joy

From the April 1897 issue of The Christian Science Journal


We look upon the beautiful flowers, fashioned to the minutest detail of perfect finish, breathe their sweet fragrance, observe their delicacy of tint and color, and they tell us a story of Joy, for we know that back of them is the infinite Love of which they are one of the expressions. We look upon the green grass with its freshness and beauty of color and form, upon the springing leaves and budding blossoms, upon the glory of landscape, of sky, and of cloud, and we read in them lessons of Joy and gladness, for we know that they are reflected, even to our mortal perception, out of the plenitude of divine Love.
