Cultivating an Appreciation for God's Creation
One of my favorite hobbies is to investigate the beauty and detail of God's creation all around us. Paying attention to the created world is a great daily reminder for adults and children alike that God is the creator of the universe.
Though this world is marred by sin, it still brings glory to the one who created it.
Nehemiah 9:5–6 (NIV)
"And the Levites—Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Pethahiah—said: 'Stand up and praise the Lord your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting. Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens,
and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them.
You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you."
Revelation 4:11 (NIV)
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things,
and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Sometimes it's just a quick picture with my phone and other times I'm able to take the time to get out the camera with longer lenses. Either way, I enjoy the adventure and challenge of documenting the creation around me.
I hope you'll enjoy the pictures of the interesting things our family has noticed lately.
