Wonders Of Creation

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen , being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Romans 1:20

When ever I look at the beauty of creation something about it speaks to my heart deep within me. It draws me to the one who created it. I stand in awe. A living picture made just for us, by a loving and awesome Father.

We are blessed to see beautiful sunsets like these on a regular basis and all through out the year no matter what the season. These happen to be winter sunsets taken just recently. Who ever spots them first comes running to tell everyone else, “hey you guys, you have to come out here and check this out”. Soon we are all gathered around oohing and aahing over the sight of such magnificent splendor.

God speaks to us by the things he has made. Moments like this are a gift to behold just for His children. The beauty of creation was not for the animals, but rather, just for us. Not once have I ever seen the sheep or the poultry standing mesmerized, staring into the wonders of the sky. It doesn’t even occur to them to look up. But, for us, it is almost irresistible. Proof enough for me that God is there, He has a plan and He isn’t finished yet.

Spectacular photos, Russ. Beauty on large scale like the skies and hills, or minute like the intricacies of a snowflake or a butterfly's wing.....all fashioned by our Creator's hand. If we were all struck dumb, His works would continue to declare His majesty.

Hi Emily,
Our daughter actually took these pictures. With her digital camera she has taken literally thousands of breath taking photo's.

Amen, no matter how large or how small you go Gods wonders are nothing short of miraculous.

Take care and God Bless!

Thanks for the comment. I consider it a privilege to live in an age where we are able to capture the pictures that God has painted and look at them over and over again. The more I look at the wonders of creation the more my faith is bolstered.

Grace and peace to you.
