The sky was overcast and grey. Rain dotted the windshield and the windows. Land where my feet had never walked passed by in a flurry of blur. Farmland was dotted with bales. Other fields had crops that had been swathed or were completely wind tossed, bowed down. But arriving at the river valley was a moment that caught my breath. The land split, the river flowed, I snapped God’s created beauty in an instant.
Come and see the works of the Lord, the desolations he has brought on the earth. Psalm 46:8 (NIV)
Attention, all! See the marvels of God! He plants flowers and trees all over the earth, Psalm 46:8 (MSG)
His beauty in creation, spoken into being, defies my understanding. It’s in the majesty of a tree standing tall.
It’s in the flowing current of a river.
It dances delicately as the leaves flutter in the wind.
It’s in the extravagant carpet of a flower garden.
It’s in the leaves as they change from vibrant green to the crayon colours of orange, yellow and red.
It’s in the uniqueness of every snowflake.
It’s in the face of everyone I see.
His marvels are worth paying attention to!
