Last week I shared the excitement of hearing the tree frogs(spring peepers) as they praised God for bringing them through another winter.  Today the spring peepers are not singing!!  I am sad and it reminds me of how sad God must be when we don’t praise Him.  He tells us in His word that if we don’t praise Him the rocks will cry out.  Let us make sure that doesn’t happen.
