God's Beautiful World . . .

Even the sparrows and swallows are welcome
to come and nest among your alters
and there have their young,
O Lord of heaven's armies,
my King and my God!
Psalm 84:3
All over the earth, you can see the artistry of God.
Mountains reach up toward the sky,
majestically pointing toward their Creator~
their snow-capped peaks offering silent praise.
Farmers' fields of grain wave to the King of Kings.
All the earth grows tall,
as if reaching up to receive His touch.
Animals of every kind show gratitude to their Maker.
Birds sing, fireflies dance, and little furry
creatures scurry in a fast festivity of life.
God created nature for His glory, and when you look,
you see a glimpse of His greatness.
It is a reflection of an even greater glory
that of His presence in the life of a human being like you.

Nature is but a name for an effect whose cause is God.
~William Cowper~
