In this poem by John Piper, he describes the world as being alive with the glory of God. Trees and mountains, the smart and the strong, tornadoes and tastes, all tell us he is higher, longer, wiser, stronger, sweeter.

I listen to a mixture of music almost non-stop as I work each day. The music low and usually in the background.
