Celebrate God's Creation


All of creation celebrates Your glory and dances with a heart of joy in Your presence. I watch in awe from this window, at the breath-taking beauty created by Your word. 
"By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible" 
- Hebrews 11:3
Even the trees know your love for them. Your whispering wind gently cradles each delicate branch with care.  They sway ever so gracefully to natures lullaby, which is delightfully sung by a multitude of praising birds. 

Even they can’t stay quite in Your presence! How their heavenly melodies seem to carry away the heavy sorrows of this world.

Oh, How You don’t miss a thing! How You care and provide for all things! Nothing is of insignificance to You... nothing.

I gaze across rolling fields of lustrous green. My eyes are drawn to a colorful bed of flowers, arrayed in deep purples, shades of blue, and a hue of yellow. The sweet fragrance of Your presence envelops every flower. Not one petal is left untouched by Your radiant glow.

Basking in Your glory, one by one, they desperately reach upward towards You, seeking Your face! If only we would emulate these flowers, and constantly look upward to heaven… seeking only You… we would shine with a similar blinding radiance.

Help me to remember Father, that those who shine brightest are those who spend the most time in the light. Teach me be a beacon of light; to walk with You daily, spending all my waking moments with gratefulness, and always contemplating on Your greatness. How I love You and pray to live a life that glorifies You like all of Your creation does!

And a fine finish to this glorious day... 
A beautiful bouquet of flowers from my son, Jayden. I am so grateful for my family.
