I’ve re-blogged this from earthstonestation – an inspiring and beautifully composed blog. It’s a beautiful hymn and the music in the post is a beautiful tune, beautifully played. Too many beautifuls there, but – a harp and concertina in church – I mean – hey – it doesn’t get much better. Thanks, Dohn.

Folliot Sandford Pierpoint was taking a walk one late Spring day, in the lovely countryside near his home in Bath, England.

Not only does Pierpoint thank God for this beautiful creation, but also for family, friends and other gifts of this world, this earth, this planet.
